Chinese smartphone giant Xiaomi has booked the tables for January 2017 with the scheduled launch of their new phone, the Xiaomi Redmi Note 4. The Note 4 has come out with a real new technology, their 2.1 GHz deca-core processor, which provides a higher clock speed and hence, a faster user-tech interface than its precedents, the Note 3 ,which came with a hexacore processor and the Note 3G which came with octa. They’ve also changed the chipset from Qualcomm Snapdragon 650, in Note 3, to the MediTek Helio X20, in the Note 4.The device offers two RAM variants being 2GB and 3GB for a slightly higher price.
The camera, however, has lagged behind because of the 13 and 5 front-back duo, which is a degradation from the 16 and 5, which came with the Note 3. The screen size, being 5.5”, is the same as its younger fellow, the Note 3 which is quite a disappointment. The operating system being the Android 6.0 Marshmallow is an upgrade (and also a distraction from the camera) from the Note 3 which came with 5.1.1 Lollipop. This phone offers usability of the 2G, 3G and also the latest, 4G band of communication. The battery, although not a huge upgrade, is 4100 mAH in comparison with the 4050 mAH in the Note 3. This one comes with a fingerprint scanner, too, allowing faster unlocking and higher security.
It also comes with a 4K display offering an incredible display quality.The device is being challenged by the LeEco 1s which has almost same the same specs. The 1s has outshone the Note 3 in terms of launch RAM being 3GB which is only available with the higher version of the latter. But nonetheless, the Note has the processor power. This phone comes in 3 colour variants being Silver, Gold and Gray. The second drawback of this phone is its inability to accommodate 2 sims with a memory card. It has two slots, one of them being a ‘twin’, which means that it can accommodate either a sim or a micro SD card. Ignoring the camera and the twin slot, the phone really seems to be standing out and is highly recommended.
