Xiaomi has just confirmed that the Redmi Note 4X will launch on February 14th, on Valentine's Day. The company shared a teaser for the launch of the Redmi Note 4X on Weibo, China's social media network. The company flat out confirms that the Redmi Note 4X will launch on February 14 by saying "February 14 to bring a special Valentine's Day gift: red rice Note4X". Xiaomi also shared an image along with the aforementioned caption, and it is placed below this article, just in case you'd like to check it out.
The Xiaomi Redmi Note 4X was certified by TENAA (China's equivalent to the FCC) at the end of last year. Thanks to that certification, we not only know what specs to expect here, but also what will this smartphone look like. The Xiaomi Redmi Note 4X looks identical to the Redmi Note 4 which was introduced last year, and truth be told, we really don't see a single difference between the two devices. The Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 is fueled by the Helio X20 64-bit deca-core SoC, and it seems like the Redmi Note 4X will be as well. The two devices share a number of other specs as well, the Redmi Note 4X will be available in 3GB and 4GB RAM variants which will ship with 32GB and 64GB of storage, respectively. A 13-megapixel shooter will be placed on the back of the Redmi Note 4X, and a 5-megapixel snapper will be available on its front side. A 4,100mAh battery will also be a part of this package, and it will not be removable.
The Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 features all of the specs we've mentioned in the previous paragraph, so we're wondering how accurate was TENAA's listing which surfaced at the end of December. In any case, the Redmi Note 4X will be made out of metal, while it will ship with a fingerprint scanner on its back, and also three capacitive keys below its display. Xiaomi had already introduced the Snapdragon-powered variant of the Redmi Note 4 in India, which is supposed to be an international variant of the Redmi Note 4, so what is Redmi Note 4X's purpose? Well, we'll find out on February 14th, stay tuned.
