In recent years Xiaomi has risen quickly in the Android space, assuming a sizable foothold in the market thanks to its affordable Redmi and Note lineups that are selling well in every market they are available. Now it appears the Chinese juggernaut is prepping to launch its next affordable and durable handset: The Redmi 4.
Some leaked photos of what appears to be the Redmi 4 have been spotted on Playfuldroid. The images suggest that the upcoming smartphone will have a metal body and house a fingerprint sensor on the back. Despite these changes the overall design isn’t too radically different from its predecessor, though the horizontal antenna line is noticeably visible on the bottom of the device giving it an iPhone like look.
Another change is the twin-speaker setup that surrounds the USB port at the bottom of the device. However, probably one of the most interesting visual changes is the curved display that extends from end to end on the device’s front.
According to the rumor mill, the Redmi 4 will most likely be powered by Helio X20 along with an option to choose from either a 2GB/3GB of RAM. In all likelihood, Xiaomi might also be readying a Qualcomm Snapdragon variant for select few markets including India as well.
As for when we can anticipate the device’s debut? The Xiaomi Redmi 4 is expected to arrive sometime in the middle of September this year. We’ll be sure to bring you more details as they hit.
