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.
