Xiaomi Redmi 4 official: so what’s new?

Xiaomi Redmi 4

Xiaomi has officially taken the wraps off the Redmi 4 smartphone, coming in standard, Pro and Redmi 4A flavours.

The standard Redmi 4 comes with a budget-minded Snapdragon 430 processor (1.2Ghz octacore A53), 2GB RAM, 16GB of expandable storage, 13MP main camera and a 5-inch 720p display.

In other words, it’s nigh-on identical to the Redmi 3 (review), which packs a slightly more powerful Snapdragon 616 chip.

Want better features? Then the Pro model might be for you, featuring a more capable Snapdragon 625 processor (2Ghz octacore A53), 3GB RAM, 32GB of expandable storage, 16MP main camera and a 5-inch 1080p display.

The Redmi 4 Pro model sees a notable step up, but the other models aren’t too different from the Redmi 3

Both models also feature a 4100mAh battery, 5MP selfie shooter and rear-mounted fingerprint scanner, matching features seen in the Redmi 3.

The standard Redmi 4 has a price tag of RMB699 (R1391 as a straight conversion), while the Pro model has a price of RMB899 (R1789).

Want to go even lower than that? Then the Redmi 4A, priced at RMB499 (R995), might be for you. At the price tag, you’re getting a phone with a 5-inch 720p display, quad-core Snapdragon 425 chip, 2GB RAM, 13MP main camera and 16GB of expandable storage. However, the phone drops the fingerprint scanner and reduces the battery capacity to 3120mAh.
