Mystery specs

The Redmi Note series has proven pretty popular, offering decent specss for a very reasonable price. The exact specifications of the Malaysia-bound models are unknown but it's most likely they will follow similar specs to India's variants.

In India, the Redmi Note 4 uses the Snapdragon 625 octa-core 2.0GHz processor, with options for 2GB, 3GB and 4GB versions. There seems to be a 2GB RAM model with 32GB of storage, another one with the same amount of storage but with 3GB of RAM and the highest spec model being 4GB of RAM with 64GB of storage.

It also comes with a 4100mAh battery, 13MP rear camera with 720p recording as well as a 5MP front camera. For the display it uses a 5.5in Full HD display but sticks to standard microUSB for charging, likely forgoing Type-C as a cost-saving measure.

We'll keep you updated once the full specs for the Malaysian models are made available along with their prices.
