by NDTV Correspondent, December 29, 2014
Xiaomi’s budget 4G-smartphone, the Redmi Note 4G, will go on sale on Tuesday via Flipkart.
The first flash sale on Tuesday for the Redmi Note 4G will kick off at 2pm IST on Flipkart for registered users. As of now, the company has not detailed the number of units that will be up for purchase.
The last tweet by Mi India urged interested buyers of the Xiaomi Redmi Note 4G, priced at Rs. 9,999, to register for the flash sale.
The Flipkart’s Mi page notes that every user will have to register each time for separate sales and due to the great demand of Xiaomi handsets, it will limit orders to one phone per registered email ID per sale.
The Chinese handset brand last week had announced the availability of the Redmi Note 4G for the Indian market. Xiaomi has been lately struggling in India as it wastemporarily banned from selling handsets in India as they are alleged to infringe on Ericsson’s patents. The company finally scored a reprieve by being allowed to sell its Qualcomm-based handsets in the country.
The Redmi Note 4G, unlike the Redmi Note, will be also available in Airtel stores in six cities which are yet to be named by the company. Customers will have to registerseparately to buy a Redmi Note 4G from Airtel stores.
Featuring single-SIM support, the Xiaomi Redmi Note 4G runs on Android 4.4.2 KitKat OS with MIUI v5 skin on top. During the launch in India, Xiaomi had indicated that updates to Android 5 Lollipop will be available in the future, but provided no time frame.
The smartphone is powered by a quad-core 1.6GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 CPU coupled with 2GB of RAM. Other specifications of the Xiaomi Redmi Note 4G are similar to the Redmi Note (3G), which includes a 5.5-inch 720×1280-pixel IPS LCD display; a 13-megapixel rear autofocus camera with LED flash; a 5-megapixel front-facing camera; 8GB built-in storage with microSD card expansion (up to 64GB), and a 3,100mAh battery with support for fast charging.
