All this was confirmed by Xiaomi itself in a Weibo post. Rest of the post was cryptic, and hence, we might have to wait till February 14 to know the details. Everything including the price will be made official on the home turf next week.
Other than the smartphone announcement, Xiaomi also unearthed the new Hatsune Green Limited Edition variant today.
The Redmi Note 4 has seen great success in China, followed by India lately. Since the original version is till pretty new in the country, we might have to wait a bit longer to get our hands on the new variant 4X. Going by trends, India shall see the launch of Redmi Note 4X by June 2017, which is a 4-month window between China and India launch.
Right now, only the name has been unveiled by the Chinese manufacturer with a hint of a hardware refresh. It will be a bit more powerful than the original variant and shall cost more to keep the balance between the new model and the old one.
