Xiaomi’s July 27 event brought the Redmi Pro instead of the expected Redmi Note 4, but the Note 4 is still coming – very soon perhaps. A moderator over at the MIUI forum posted some teaser images.
Those images are marked with a date – July 25, tomorrow! The moderator dropped hints about how popular the Redmi Note 3, but then a week ago we saw the smaller Redmi 4 leak. So it’s not 100% clear which one of the 4th gen Redmis we’re getting. That’s not the end of it either, a flagship Xiaomi Mi Note 2 with a Snapdragon 821 is also in the mix.
If we see the Xiaomi Redmi 4 tomorrow, we expect a 5″ 1080p screen, Snapdragon 625 chipset, 4,100mAh battery and a low price – ~$100 for the 3GB/32GB model (and there’s a 2GB/16GB one planned too).
If it’s the Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 instead, then a Helio X20 chipset, 5.5″ screen and a 4,100mAh battery are in order. There were indications of a dual-camera (13MP+5MP like the Redmi Pro), but some of the rumors may have gotten mixed up with the Redmi Pro, so that’s less certain.
The Xiaomi Mi Note 2 was rumored for September 5, but the launch may have been pulled up. If that’s the case, expect a Samsung-made AMOLED screen, Snapdragon 821 with 6GB of RAM, up to 128GB of storage and a fingerprint reader on the front of the metal body. The price should be around $375, $420 if you want the top storage version.
