Xiaomi Starts Selling the Redmi Note 4 in Stores Across Asia

07 February 2018

Previously, Xiaomi officials tweeted about a new device coming soon but they did not confirm if it is the Redmi Note 4. But last year in November, the Redmi Note 4 was launched in China, and now starts selling in other countries like Nepal. Recently, Xiaomi just unveiled the device in India on May 16 and it has already sold over a million Redmi Note 4 units. As for its specifications, the Redmi Note 4 comes with a decent 296 PPI pixel density in its 5.5-inch IPS LCD display. It is available in three storage variants: the 2 GB RAM/32 GB storage, 3 GB RAM /32 GB storage, and the 4 GB RAM/64 GB storage. It houses a Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 processor with 8 cores clocked at 1.4 GHz along with an Adreno 505 GPU. It also comes equipped with a stellar 4100 mAh battery. In the camera department, the Redmi Note 4 hosts a 13 MP rear camera and a 5 MP front snapper as expected for a mid-range device. However, unlike many other mid-range models, it comes with a phase detection autofocus that allows shooting moving objects. Aside from these, the Redmi Note 4 hosts a micro SD slot and a dual SIM feature. In terms of the operating system, Xiaomi loaded the device with the Android Marshmallow version, unlike its high-end smartphones that host the latest Android version, the Nougat. The Redmi Note 4 sports a gyroscope, IR blaster, and a fingerprint sensor which many other phones in this range don’t have. It also comes with the basic sensors like ambient light, accelerometer, compass, and proximity. The Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 is already out in Malaysia, Singapore, Philippines, and Hong Kong. It comes with a starting price of 673 RM (220 SGD, 7,750 PHP, and 1,215 HKD).

Xiaomi Redmi 1S Malaysia: The Perfect Android Starter Kit

The Redmi 1S Malaysia is Malaysia first ever entry into the smartphone competition. Despite being their pioneer device, it managed to hold up with the competition against other entry level devices in the terms of power, capacity and price.

Camera Ahead of Its Game

It boasts an 8MP primary camera, a more than good enough resolution for an entry level smartphone. On the other hand, its selfie camera is 1.6MP, producing social media friendly quality selfies. For the primary camera it can record video up to 1080p quality at 30fps, while its front is at 720p. For a shoe string price and a device that falls on the entry level category, the Redmi 1S Malaysia simply shines bright in the competition.

Above Average Entry Level Performance

In terms of power, the Redmi 1s is what you’d expect from an entry level smart phone. It is run by a Quad-core processor with 1GB RAM. This is sufficient enough to run moderate to a little below heavy amount of applications in order to stay productive at work or at play. The 1GB RAM provides enough space to run various background apps and active apps at the same time without having to lag around a lot. Also, its internal memory is 8GB but can be further expanded up to 64GB with its microSD slot of up. So, you could squeeze in enough apps and media files to satisfy your entertainment on the go needs.

HD Resolution Screen

Its screen is nothing outstanding, but it doesn’t underperform either. For a 4.7 inched screen, its 312ppi pixel density is already detailed enough to keep those pixels in check and make the screen quality look decent enough. Aside from that the screen’s resolution is set at 720x1280, giving a lot of room for images to be squeezed in to the screen.

Dual Network Operation

Its dual active standby capability allows its users to operate two sim card at the same time. Users no longer have to switch from one sim to another, because both can run at the same time on 3G.
