With the company’s vision to offer budget range high-end technology devices, it’s no surprise that while the Redmi Note 4 offers healthy specs, it still in the budget line when it comes to its price value. As the successor to the famous Redmi Note 3, the Redmi Note 4 now offers some key hardware upgrades from its predecessor.

The latest smartphone now features a unibody metallic design with familiar chamfered edges along with the curved glass display. It has a 5.5-inch full HD IPS display and the device is powered by MediaTek’s 2.1Ghz deca-core Helio X20 processor with 2GB to 3GB RAM variants having 16GB or 64GB internal storage respectively.
