Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 is all set to launch in India on Thursday, which the Chinese company is calling its first major launch in 2017. The company is holding a launch event in New Delhi that's scheduled to begin at 11:30am IST, and you can watch the live stream at c.mi.com/in or below. The Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 is likely to launch in three variants in India, and be an online-exclusive. In the Indian market, the new Xiaomi smartphone is expected to compete against the likes of Lenovo K5 Note, LeEco Le 2, and Asus ZenFone Max ZC520TL.
The Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 smartphone is expected to be exclusive on Flipkart, as the e-commerce giant had teased the same a little while ago.
The Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 was launched in China back in August, and its highlight is its metal build and MediaTek deca-core SoC; however, Xiaomi may launch a Qualcomm processor variant in India, as it has done in the past. The Redmi Note 4 also sports a fingerprint scanner on the rear panel.
In China, the Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 was made available in two variants - 2GB of RAM/ 16GB inbuilt storage model was priced at CNY 899 (approximately Rs. 9,000), while the 3GB of RAM/ 64GB storage model was priced at CNY 1,199 (approximately Rs. 12,000). A 3GB RAM/ 32GB Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 storage model was later introduced at CNY 999 (roughly Rs. 10,000). We can expect Redmi Note 4 price in India to be roughly the same. Xiaomi had launched the smartphone in Gold, Grey, and Silver colours.

The smartphone is powered by a deca-core MediaTek Helio X20 coupled with Mali-T880 MP4 GPU, but as we said, the company could launch another processor variant in India.
