Xiaomi seems to be maintaining its de-facto superiority in the budget-oriented smartphones. After launching the Xiaomi Redmi Pro smartphone with dual cameras and Helio X25 deca-core processor last month, the Chinese smartphone vendor is now busy testing the Xiaomi Redmi 4.
The successor to the immensely popular Redmi 3 appeared on GeekBench a few days back, confirming its hardware and software specifications. Now, we have spotted some hands-on images of the yet unannounced smartphones. This particular variant of the Xiaomi Redmi 4 features a Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 processor (clocked at 2.0GHz) and 2GB RAM.
The Redmi 4 seems to be sporting a 5.5-inch display and running MIUI 8.0 based on Android 6.0 Marshmallow. The standard variant is expected to come with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage, while the high-end variant of the device will be equipped with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage.
The Xiaomi Redmi 4 was rumoured to feature a dual-camera setup similar to the Redmi Pro, but these images showcase a single camera at the back with an LED flash and a fingerprint sensor below it. The metal body seems to be similar to that of the Redmi Note 3 and Redmi 3s, but we could notice an antenna strip near the bottom of the body.
Along with the Xiaomi Redmi 4, the company is expected to announce the Mi Note 2 next month, which is rumored to feature a curved display, Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 processor, up to 6GB of RAM, and up to 128GB of internal storage. Xiaomi hasn’t revealed the launch date of the Redmi 4 yet, but we expect it to be officially revealed on the 25th of August, 2016.
