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).

Redmi 5 Plus Malaysia Review – Bigger is Indeed Better

Xiaomi has been credited for producing feature-filled and wallet-friendly smartphones that are comparable to the top models on the market today. The Redmi 5 Plus is another wallet-friendly Xiaomi smartphone that is packed with incredible features found commonly in models priced much higher.

Design and Construction

Compared to its predecessors, the Redmi 5 Plus sports some changes in terms of its design. The phone has an eye-catching design. At the front, the Redmi 5 Plus is equipped with a 5.99-inch display panel with small bezels at the top and bottom of the screen, giving a tall and slim profile. Its rounded edges and svelte build makes it comfortable to hold and use.

Display and Audio

In terms of its display, the Redmi 5 Plus comes with a 5.99-inch Full HD+ display panel which is an uncommon sight for a phone in this price range. The display has an 18:9 aspect ratio, providing generous screen real estate for consuming your bingeing on your favourite dramas and games. Colours are accurate, icons are crisp, and the screen is bright enough to be used under direct sunlight without viewability problems.

Audio-wise, the speaker is sufficient for everyday consumption and basic gaming. You can also crank up the volume without any loss in clarity. Apart from the lack of bass, the speakers deserve a thumbs up for the overall sound quality it delivers.


The cameras on the Redmi 5 Plus might be a tad disappointing for you, especially since smartphones today mostly feature either dual rear or front shooters. Despite the lack of a dual-camera setup, the 12MP primary snapper still does a decent job in well-lit conditions, capturing well-detailed photos without being over- or under-exposed. Moreover, Xiaomi has added a motherload of modes and settings for users to experiment with including HDR, HHT, Beautify, Tilt-Shift, and many more choices.

As for videos, the Redmi 5 Plus is able to record at 4K capacity at 30fps in MP4 format. This should be more than enough for your everyday Facebook Live or Instagram Story videos.


Under the hood, the Xiaomi 5 Plus runs on a Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 processor that is paired with an Adreno 506 GPU, 3GB of RAM, and 32GB of internal storage. Together, they deliver a snappy performance, enabling the phone to handle mundane tasks such as browsing the Web and launching multiple applications with ease. Light to medium games such as Mobile Legends, Gems of War, and Candy Crush run smoothly without any drop in frame rates.


The battery efficiency provided by the Redmi 5 Plus is another reason to consider the phone. Its massive 4,000mAh battery can easily power the device through a busy day of usage on a single charge.
