The Chinese tech company Xiaomi has just unveiled its 4G version of its existing Android phablet, The Xiaomi Redmi Note 4G. The first Redmi Note has desirable specs such as big HD display, Octa-core processor and dual-sim functionality but lacking one spec that many are looking for nowadays, 4G connectivity. And that is one of the main selling points of the new Xiaomi phablet.
Xiaomi released the Redmi Note 4G to meet the 4G LTE capability demand for this Android device and still kept its very affordable price tag which will only cost users $162 (when converted to US currency). To keep that price low, the company replaced the octa-core processor with a Snapdragon 400 SoC clocked at 1.6GHz with a much higher 2GB of RAM. The display size is still the same with 720p resolution plus it's now an Android Kitkat-powered and now also supports microSD card up to 64GB.
The rest of the specs are relatively the same. The battery at 3,100mAh size, 13MP and 5MP rear and front cameras respectively. The first Redmi Note offers dual sim functionality, this one only one sim slot. The device will be released in China within this month but no word yet if it will be rolled out beyond China.
