The Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 is the new member of the great-value-for-the-money family of phones that Chinese company Xiaomi is selling in Asia.
A phone that will likely never be officially sold in the United States or Europe, the Redmi Note 4 is still an interesting and exotic proposition, even if you have to import it from unofficial channels.
A 5.5" phone running on Xiaomi's feature-rich MIUI interface based on top of Android 6 Marshmallow, the Redmi Note 4 is built to be tough and good-looking. Its body is crafted out of metal and comes in iPhone-esque dark grey, light silver and gold versions. Its signature feature, however, has to be its large, 4100mAh battery cell that can last you more than your average phone.
The phone is just slightly on the thick side at 8.35mm, but that's to be expected with such a large battery. There are two models on sale: both run on the 10-core MediaTek Helio X20 system chip, but the more affordable one ships with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage, while the slightly more expensive version comes equipped with 3GB of RAM and 64 gigs of on-board storage.
The camera is a 13-megapixel unit with phase-detection auto-focus and you can hit the source link at the bottom to check out camera test images (hint: they look quite impressive). Take a look at the specs highlight for the new Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 below and the official images right below.
