Xiaomi Redmi 4 with Snapdragon 625 SoC, 3GB RAM spotted online

The Xiaomi Redmi 3 may be still respawning into different flavors such as Redmi 3S, Redmi 3 Pro and Redmi 3X, but it seems the company is already working on its official successor.

Xiaomi Redmi 4 was found recently inside the GeekBench results database and we can now shed some light on its specs. Contradicting the previous reports for Helio X20 chip, the Redmi 4 to pass the GeekBench test ran on Snapdragon 625 chip.

The Snapdragon 625 platform is somewhat of a direct successor to the 616 SoC powering the Redmi 3. It employs an octa-core Cortex-A53 processor clocked at 2GHz and a new Adreno 506 GPU. While the CPU A53 cores are of the same generation, the much higher CPU clock will surely make a difference. The LTE Cat.7 connectivity is also an upgrade over the Cat.4.

Along with the Redmi 4, details about the Mi Note 2 have also surfaced. Rumored to launch on September 5, the smartphone is highly anticipated to feature a Samsung-made AMOLED display and could be powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 821 processor. With a fingerprint scanner embedded inside the physical home button on front, the smartphone is also expected to feature a 3,600mAh battery with support for fast charging.

The Mi Note 2 with 6GB of RAM and 64GB storage could set you back by RMB 2,499, which is approximately Rs 25,000 in India, and the other variant with 128GB could be priced at RMB 2,799, which is approximately Rs 28,000. Xiaomi is also reportedly working on a Mi Note 2 with Samsung Galaxy S7 edge-like curved display.
