Xiaomi ‘s Redmi line-up has evidently been one of the biggest favourites in the budget smartphone segment. The Redmi series is doing so well for the company that they decided to launch three separate models within the range of Rs 5,999 and Rs 12,999, with seven different variants.
Xiaomi launched the Redmi 4 last week; the device that succeeds one of Xiaomi’s best-selling, Redmi 3S series. The device will be available exclusively on Amazon Xiaomi India’s website. The device will start selling from 12pm today. Though the company has claimed that it is coming with a huge stockpile of devices, it is still expected to go out of stock quickly considering Xiaomi’s past record.
Including the latest entrant, Xiaomi now has three smartphones placed extremely close in the budget segment. Apart from the different models, the company is even offering numerous variants for each model. The new Redmi 4 comes with 2GB/16GB, 3GB/32GB and 4GB/64GB options at Rs 6,999, Rs 8,999 and Rs 10,999 respectively.
On the other hand there’s another device that’s doing extremely well in the Indian market, the Redmi Note 4. Though it sports a bigger form factor, the internals and design language is similar to the Redmi 4. However, the device will be a better choice for power users who need an extra boost in terms of performance; the device sports the beefier Snapdragon 625.
Apart from both these devices, Xiaomi is also offering an ultra-budget smartphone that’s priced better than Redmi 4. However, the Redmi 4A comes with a polycarbonate built but sits in the same form factor as Redmi 4. The device comes with a smaller battery than the Redmi 4 but is also priced lesser, at Rs 5,999.
