Xiaomi recently launched Redmi 4 Prime in Nepal, and now the company has announced the Redmi 4X in China adding another member to the Redmi 4 family. Is it the upgraded version of the Redmi 4 Prime (Rs. 23,499)? No! It’s a scaled down version of the Redmi 4x. So, we can expect the Redmi 4x to be priced around Rs. 19,000 when it arrives in Nepal.
Looking at the specs, it’s is powered by a octacore Qualcomm Snapdragon 435 SoC with Adreno 505 GPU. The display size is the same as the Redmi 4 Prime which is a 5″ inch but the resolution has been scaled down to 720p. In the optics department, the Redmi 4x features a same 13MP back and 5MP front camera. It comes with either a 2GB RAM with 16GB storage or 3GB RAM and 32GB storage. Other features include Dual-SIM, fingerprint sensor, VoLTE support and a 4,100 mAh battery as well. The Android version is undefined but we can expect Android Marshmallow with MIUI 8. It does come in Cherry Pink, Champagne Gold, and Mate Black colors.
Going by the specs of this phone, it obviously a downgraded version of the Redmi 4 Prime. To be specific, it lies in between the Redmi 4A and 4 Prime in the Redmi 4 family. Now the Redmi 4x is priced at $130 in China. But going by the pricing strategies of Vatsal Implex (importer of Xiaomi in Nepal), we can expect the pricing to be around Rs 19,000 nicely in middle between Redmi 4a at 14,999 and Redmi 4 Prime at Rs 23,499.
