Xiaomi launches Redmi Note 4X in China with Snapdragon 653 and special Miku edition

Xiaomi officially launched the updated version of Xiaomi Redmi Note 4, the Redmi Note 4X in China. As all the product launches, officially, this will be limited to China in terms of availability. One important thing to note is that design-wise the Redmi Note 4X is same as the Redmi Note 4. The only difference is the availability in Teal Green which is being termed as the limited edition Hatsune Miku edition, on the occasion of Valentine’s Day.

For the uninitiated, Hatsune Miku is an extremely popular singing synthesiser app primarily popular in Japan. The popularity is such that people attend concerts where the holographic avatar of Miku is performing on stage. In addition to the ‘Hatsune Gree’, the company has also launched a variant in ‘Cherry Pink’ colour as reported by GSMArena. The entire package comes along with a stylised package, protective case and limited edition Mi Power bank.

The company has not published detailed specs of the smartphone along or the pricing but the company is expected to release these details prior to the sales day. However, as reported by GSMArena, the internals of the Redmi Note 4X are exactly the same as the internals of Redmi Note 4. In terms of hardware, the phone will be powered by a Snapdragon 653 chipset internationally and a MediaTek Helio X20 in China (the same as on the Chinese Note 4). The current international edition of the Note 4 uses the Snapdragon 625 chip, which is slightly less powerful than the 653, but more power efficient.
