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.

  • 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?

    • 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.

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

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

          • 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

            • 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

              • 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?

                • 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.

                    • 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

                    • 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.

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

  • 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!

  • 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

    • 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.

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

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

          • 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

            • 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.

            • 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.

              • 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

      • 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

        • 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.

          • 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…

  • Like this phone, but will wait few weeks/months. By that time, they might get price reduction or may include Internet bundles, Easy paisa discounts.

  • i was before xiaomi user i bought my first xiaomi redmi note 3 its work perfect once its goes off and never turn back again. and now its been upto 6 months its still the same and there is no franchised i found in Pakistan so i suggest wont buy anything till you wont found any service center in pakistan. my contact number is 03066667772

      • Bhai jan dubara massage parho itsnt responding not turning on how should i boot into recovery when itsnt wont giving any response

          • Its showed some valtage on screen its hard to attached the pins bcz the box where the battery give power is too small and its hard to attached two pins well first its show some vatlage and later in second try no response. I tried serval more tries but no response anymore.

            • Tried any other battery? USB powered on in computer to see if windows detect anything…

              • No response on pc/laptop. If u check google most of countries where xiaomi is open like huawei is open here. Most of customer have one complaint that cell phone stop responding. Cell phone is awesome if itsnt guve u any problem but if its given then u lost whole ur money

                • One plus one… Or ZTE…. They are better then any other Chinese phones….. Price to performance ratio and build quality….

  • Xiaomi 4 k price kafi high hain Pakistan mein or 2 GB 16 storage wala phone launch hi nahi kiya hai pakistan mein abhi tk ka xiaomi note 4 hi best hai
