Xiaomi has expanded its portfolio of budget smartphones in India and launched today Redmi 4 at an event in New Delhi.

Redmi 4 comes in three variants - 2GB RAM + 16GB ROM, 3GB + 32GB, and 4GB + 64GB, and is expandable up to 128GB with a microSD card.

At this wide price bracket, Xiaomi Redmi 4 offers features such as a 5-inch HD screen, Snapdragon 435 processor, Android 6.0.1-based MIUI 8 software, and 4100mAh battery.

Both the Redmi 4 and Redmi 4 Prime bear identical metal unibody designs, 2.5D curved glass displays, hybrid dual-SIM slots, and a fingerprint sensor on the rear panel, but have some major differences in specifications such as display resolution, memory, processor, and inbuilt storage.

Now, Redmi 4 comes in a matte black variant, similar to the Redmi Note 4, and there's a gold colour variant as well. On the back of the phone is a 13MP camera with an f/2.0 aperture and Phase Detection Auto Focus technology.

Redmi 4 - the successor to Redmi 3S - will be priced Rs 6,999 onwards. "With awesome smart features and a game-changing price, Mi Router 3C is set to disrupt the router market in India".
