More dual cameras: Xiaomi's Redmi Note 4 leaks, shows metal body and twin snappers
Xiaomi is slowly but surely gaining popularity as a company that's looking to build trendy smartphones at a fraction of the price you'd expect to see from more well-known brands. Besides the sleek-looking, glass-and-metal Mi 5 flagship, the company also offers a few lower- and upper-midrange devices, expanding its portfolio for the more budget-minded folk. The Redmi Note series is a prime example of this – solid midrange specs for about $200 (though shipping and customs might inflate that price).

A recent leak allegedly shows us that the company's next midranger, the Redmi Note 4, might come with a stylish metal body and a dual camera module on its back, setting it up well for what seems to be an upcoming trend — the dual sensors, most recently seen on the Huawei P9, Honor 8, as well as more and more iPhone 7 Plus leaks.

While not much else is known about the Redmi Note 4 at this time, it's safe to assume it'll have a large, 5.5-inch display, at least 3 GB of RAM, and a massive battery, since the Redmi Note 3 raised the bar high with a 4,000 mAh juicebox. The pictured device clearly has no fingerprint sensor on the back — something that is present on the Redmi Note 3 — so it could mean that it's moved to the front, in the form of a hardware home button, like the one on the Mi 5.

The previous Redmi Note was launched in November of 2015, so if Xiaomi honors a 12-month refresh cycle, the new one could be coming in about 4 months. However, seeing as there is already a promo shot of the device in the leak, and assuming it's a genuine one, we could be seeing it earlier.

SD652 for that price will be great (just like SD652 version of Le2) and their build quality is great lately:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qBSGmAoDcT0 (but Mi5 is amazingly fragile :-/)

Glass backed phones are always fragile though, but the ceramic back version seems durable.

Costly are ceramic, but much better than glass.

The S650 are better Cpu then the S820. Why, S650 uses A72 cores while S820 are using A57 custom cores.

SD652 that I talk about use 4 A72 core, compared to 2 A7 core on SD650 :-/ btw, kryo and mongoose and kryo is like A72 on steroid, they can beat A72 even with lower clock, they can beat Kirin 950 which use 2.5 GHz (4 x A72)
