Xiaomi's refreshed Redmi Note mid-ranger caught at TENAA, scores a quad-core SoC and LTE
All those rooting for a refreshed version of the affordable Redmi Note might still have a reason or two to keep their hopes up. By the looks of it, Xiaomi might have just had the refreshed Redmi Note certified by TENAA, China's equivalent to the FCC.
The specs listed in the TENAA application reveal that the new traits the device will most probably end up with will be a quad-core chipset, most likely a Snapdragon 400 one, and LTE support. Apart from these, the rest of the specs of the device will remain the same: a 5.5" 720p display, 1GB of RAM, 8GB of native storage, a microSD card slot, a 13MP rear camera with an LED flash, and a 5MP selfie shooter. Android 4.4.4 KitKat will be the OS of choice for the device.
The original Xiaomi Redmi Note was priced quite aggressively, which was among the main reasons for its popularity. There's no reason to believe that the refreshed version of this affordable 5.5-incher will stray away from this philosophy.
