  • Xiaomi To Make Redmi Note 4 Available Offline, Redmi 4 And Redmi 4A Launch On 20 March

It remains to be seen if Xiaomi goes ahead with pricing the Redmi 4A aggressively.

The phones will be Amazon exclusive and the online retail giant confirmed this via a tweet. While the company has not officially revealed the name of the smartphone they plan to announce today, the invite teasers had several "4" and "A" symbols on it hinting towards the possibility of the the device being the Redmi 4A indeed.

Also, if you can remember, both Redmi 4 and Redmi 4A were accompanied by Redmi 4 Prime during the launch event in China.

It also has a heavier, more premium-feel over the Redmi Note 3 as well, along with a minor tweak in design with its speaker grille now at the bottom as oppose to the back to improve sound output especially when the phone is laid on a surface.

Now, the Chinese company has announced that the Redmi Note 4 will be making its way to offline retail centers in India, and that the device is available for pre-order. However, it doesn't look like the Redmi 4A will have a 32GB version yet, though you never know with Xiaomi. Xiaomi's Android smartphone comes in three storage options, the 2GB of RAM with 32GB of storage, 3GB of RAM with 32GB of storage and the 4GB of RAM with 64GB of storage, Indian Express has learned.

Apart from a design refresh inspired by the Redmi Note series, the new budget phones are expected to get thinner metal unibody chassis, despite packing big batteries to the tune of 4100mAh.

RedMi 4A would include a 5-inch HD display and a Snapdragon 425 chipset.

After a fair bit of success with Redmi Note 3 and Redmi 3S last year and with Redmi Note 4 this year, Xiaomi is buckling up with another victor in the budget smartphone category. There's a microSD slot as well, while the rear camera is 13MP and the front camera is 5MP. It runs on Android 6.0 Marshmallow with MIUI on top. Xiaomi was the second leading smartphone manufacturer in the country in Q4, 2016, according to research firm IDC.

The company will also be selling the Redmi Note 4 at large format retailers in Delhi, Jaipur and Chandigarh from 16 to 21 March.
