  • Xiaomi Redmi Note 4's top model has been priced at Rs. 12,999
  • The new Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 will go on sale on January 23

The Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 has been launched in India, making the competition in the budget segment - which already has several good smartphones such as Samsung Galaxy J7 2016, Lenovo K6 Note, and Vivo Y55L - even tougher. The new Xiaomi smartphone comes in three variants in India - 2GB RAM with 32GB storage priced at Rs. 9,999; 3GB RAM with 32GB storage priced at Rs. 10,999; and 4GB RAM with 64GB storage priced at Rs. 12,999. This only adds to the confusion of which model to buy.

All three Redmi Note 4 variants will be on sale starting January 23 and will be exclusively available via Mi.com and Flipkart.


The new Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 is powered by an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 processor clocked at 2.0GHz and features an all-metal body. It comes with a 5.5-inch full-HD (1080x1920 pixels) IPS display and packs a fingerprint scanner at the back. Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 is backed by a 4100mAh battery which is the highlight of the smartphone. It sports a 13-megapixel rear CMOS camera with PDAF while there is a 5-megapixel front camera. The company has claimed that the Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 will receive MIUI 8 based on Android Nougat soon.

With these specifications, the Redmi Note 4 is expected to give tough fight to its competitors. The question is which one will come out on top among the new Xiaomi smartphone, Samsung Galaxy J7 (2016), Lenovo K6 Note, and Vivo Y55L. The Samsung Galaxy J7 (2016) is available to buy in India at Rs. 15,990. The biggest highlight of the handset is its metal build and 5.5-inch full-HD Super AMOLED display.

The Lenovo K6 Note (Review) is currently available through offline channels priced at Rs. 13,999 for the 3GB RAM with 32GB storage model. The handset's highlight is its 5.5-inch full-HD display and a 4000mAh battery. Vivo Y55L is available online in India at Rs. 11,790 and it features a metal unibody with a 2.5D curved-edge screen.
