Xiaomi Officially Launches Redmi 4X in Pakistan

As promised, Xiaomi has unveiled a brand new smartphone, Redmi 4X today.

The launch event took place at Ava Garden, Faletti’s Hotel, Lahore on Friday, hosted by the renowned entertainer and musician Taimur Salahuddin AKA Mooroo.

The event also featured performances by Noori , ‘Nescafe Basement’ artist Altamash Sever and special guest presence by Mira Sethi.

Design and Display

The phone is an upgrade from the vanilla Redmi 4 in terms of design and performance. There’s not much difference otherwise. It comes with an all metal body and a fingerprint sensor at the back.

An IR blaster is included for remote controlling your TVs, ACs and other appliances.

On the front is a 5″ 720p (1280 x 720) IPS LCD display. The pixel density for this display is at 293 PPI.

Internals and Display

Xiaomi Redmi 4X is powered by an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 435 processor which can be classified as a mid-range processor. It comes in 3 different models with 2/3/4 GB RAM and 16/32/64 GB of internal storage. Pakistan will get the 3GB/32GB variant only. A microSD card slot is included with support for up to 128GB of expandable storage.

For the OS the Redmi 4X features the same old Android 6.0 Marshmallow albeit with a newer version of MIUI. The skin is quite similar to the iOS interface in Apple phones, but with better customization options and accessibility.

Camera and Battery

For the primary camera, the Redmi 4X employs a 13 MP camera with Phase Detection Autofocus, HDR and an LED flash. At the front you get a 5 MP shooter with beauty mode and other tidbits.

One of the best features of this phone is its massive 4,100 mAh battery. Coupled with a small 5″ 720p display and a Snapdragon 435 SoC the battery can easily last you through 3 days of medium usage.

Xiaomi has officially unveiled the Redmi 4X in Pakistan and it comes with a price tag of Rs. 18,900.

    The set’s price should be like 15k-16k.
    GSMArena said that it’s price is 110 Euro.

    • 110 Euro = PKR 12,000 Approx (Excluding of Destination Taxes & Agent Commission)

      Yeah, the price is high here.

      • YARaza

        Article picture ke wajha say price high ho ge ,
        Me to weak ho gea hoon Admin ko apny ap sochna chahiy kuch ab 3 din ho gay hein picture dekhty dekhty

  • Uzair Asim

    And I here am waiting for Mi Mix which is still pending approval by PTA. At this price ratio, I suspect Mix’s price would be around 60K?

  • DJ

    what Redmi Note 4 is around 21k why should one buy this set ???

    • AbdulB1

      Small hands

  • Atif

    Snapdragon 4xx is not a mid range series…

    • Junaid Awan

      +1

    • Haamiz Ahmed

      Its not but Snapdragon 435 in particular is different.
      its an octa core A53 SoC which is similar to what a lot of other smartphone companies offer in this price range.

      • Atif

        so? does it make it mid range?
        no it doesn’t.
        so at the end it’s still not a mid range chip.

    • Aadil

      Snapdragon 435 is basically an underclocked SD 625 and much more powerful than the previous chips in 4xx series

      • Atif

        still it isn’t mid range chip.

        • Aadil

          yes it is. Otherwise you wouldn’t see mid-rangers costing 30-40k using it.

          • Atif

            no it isn’t.
            making something better does’t make it jump grades. ,?

            today’s 6xx my work better in few things compared to older 80x, that doesn’t make them top of the line.

            series are made by manufacturer
            2xx low end
            4xx entry level
            6xx mid level
            8xx high end

            • Aadil

              Well first of all, classing something as 2xx,4xx does not represent it. Manufacturer only named the series, it did not name its series low-end, midrange etc.
              Secondly, low end and entry level are the same thing. These days its upper midrange and lower midrange apart from entry level and flagships.
              Third, you didn’t answer why “manufacturers” are making midrange phones and using SD 4xx chips (SD 430 and 435)
              Fourth, 430,435, 625,626 have the same processing units with different clock frequencies and both chips offer similar performance. Check benchmarks especially GPU ones.
              Fifth, Qualcomm no longer follows the same naming scheme. Bigger jumps in nomenclature now mean that these chips are between two classes like the 652,660 which offer flagship grade performance in phones

              • Atif

                why are arguing? a simple search or visiting Qualcomm should clear your doubts.

                why manufacturer uses what series in what mobile……. seriously you want me to answer that?
                come-on!

                • Aadil

                  I would have preferred to see you reply to my points in the previous comment.
                  You should try googling it yourself, (btw visiting Qualcomm wouldn’t resolve your misunderstanding).
                  In case you can’t.
                  LG Stylus 2 Plus, Lenovo K6, Lenovo K6 Note, Lenovo K6 Power, Asus ZenFone 3 Laser, Asus ZenFone 3 Max ZC553KL, Nokia 5, Nokia 6, Moto G5 etc
                  These are some of the phones with a 430/435. Look like entry level phones to you? None of them is priced below $150 and they go all the way up to $350.
                  Arguing is futile if you can’t admit you were wrong and can’t show positive attitude.

                  • Atif

                    the last line you wrote, i 100% agree to it. try it is not that hard.

                    • faithful

                      Chip level is another thing and phone level is another…. Samsung used s6 processor in A8 2016 processor is flagship level but phone is still midrange… U can say high it’s OK… But not more than that

                    • Aadil

                      I have informed you with the correct information. If you fail to understand than you are either a troll or …let’s not go there.

  • It’s Mehanga & Cheap Specs Phone Ever

    • Aslan Haider

      its price should be around 16k to 17k but still it offers more specs and espacially snapdragon than damn oppo

  • guest

    why don’t the launch like Redmi note 3 and MI 5 and Mi 5s

    • Adeel Zafar

      Not the mid range so please launch in mid range.

    • I guess They are focusing on Newly launched cheaper models right now.

      Mi series maybe launched in 3rd phase starting after two months.

  • Nawaz Rajput

    Price is high.It should be around 15-16K. You just have to spend 2k more and get Redmi Note 4 which is a better buy than this!

  • Hassan Raza

    Pakistan may tax tax tax tax tax or pher 18900 ka bana hai ye cell… pakitani awam ab bus black friday may he cell lay sakti hai pora saal moo bnd :P

    • FuriousNinja

      Black Friday me bi itne ka hi hga. Us s phle 36000 ka krdygain phr bolygain 50% percent off. Then Daraz and other awesome online shopping websites will claim they got so much profit through … sale.

  • Muhammad Faheem

    Same as my redmi note 3 with very subtle changes…

  • hassancent

    its just slight upgrade from redmi 4a which is already selling expensive price of 13k. Why is this priced at 19k?

    • AbdulB1

      Bik Gaye ha gormimt

  • faithful

    Instead of these xiaomi phones LG V10 or LG g5 are much better deal

    • AbdulB1

      LG phones have weak solder, boot loops are very common.

      • KaKa

        G4 bootloops problems are very common. You are rightly pointing out.

        • AbdulB1

          LG phones have problems since Optimus 2x. I never bought LG phone after that. Even g5 has that problem.

          • Ali

            How can u say that lg g5 have bootloop issue i m using it .I think it far better than xiaomi mi 5 and mi5s and plus.Lg display and camera is superior

            • AbdulB1

              search on the internet. v10 also suffers from that so does the g5. About G6 only has assured it wont be happening but you cant deny it wont happen as LG is always worse in quality and they force users to buy a new phone every year. Bootloop was due to lead free solder which breaks at high temperatures.

            • AbdulB1

              xiaomi is much cheaper and better than LG phones being sold in Pakistan. Most of these phones were stolen in western countries then shipped to China for refurbishment in underground factories then exported world over. read comment on website like aliexpress about lg , htc and others.

            • faithful

              Did you updated your phone?

              • Ali

                yeah i m currently on Nougat.But bootloop issue on g4 and v10 due to lose contact of board components and also due to Qualcomm SD808 was have some issues.Overall Fulmics rom i think is better than Stock

                • faithful

                  Which version of LG g5 u have? American?

                  • Ali

                    I m using LG G5 H830 (T-mobile).You can unlocked bootloader only h850(International Version) and T-mobile. Other variant bootloader currently not yet available .

                    • faithful

                      Thanks for the explanation… I always prefer international then Tmobile…. At&t always locked down bootloader…. Am using Axon 7… It’s amazing…..

                    • Ali

                      No bro unlocked bootloader issue is only in g5 variants not other model variants.Thanks

                    • faithful

                      In atnt model it’s locked for sure rest they don’t lock…

                    • Ali

                      yep

                  • Ali

                    American(At&t) bootloader is not yet available

      • faithful

        Boot loops are fixed now…. Every handset has bugs so its common even MI6 has many software issues… I don’t own any LG phones. But price to performance ratio wise LG is best in about 20k range and 2 years of worth of updates to fix issues. In 22k u can get LG g5 dual camera 4GB ddr4 ram SD 820 quick charge 3.0 ufs 2.0 it’s overall best deal instead of Chinese….Cheap midrange

        • AbdulB1

          Bhai own nahe karte aur kahte ho fix ho gaya. U cant fix it with software. It is hardware issue due to lead free solder.

          • faithful

            Free solder was related to LG g4 only…. SD 820 is much cooler chip and there is heat pipe too so no heat no free solder issue….. And Yes bootloop can be fixed through OTA… And check xda for LG g5 bootloop issue it’s been fixed…

            • AbdulB1

              Xda has complaints about that issue still. LG is also sued in America for boot loops. It has more to do with memory chips than processor.

              • faithful

                Yes it’s sued in America by a customer of LG g4 and its expended to others like G5 nexus 5x V10 v20… But but ones with latest software are running smooth

                • AbdulB1

                  Hardware faults dont get fixed via software updates.

                  • faithful

                    In LG g5 there is no hardware failure or fault

                  • faithful

                    Bootloop is caused by software updates custom or official…. Even by twrp

                    • AbdulB1

                      check xda

                    • faithful

                      I already checked and looked on google….. U Check the definition of bootloop. Which phone are you using now?

  • Abu Zaid
