Xiaomi, the Chinese smartphone giant, announced multiple smartphones last year, and quite a few of them were launched in India. Taking this into consideration, the company has now launched the Redmi Note 4 in the Indian market. The smartphone is the successor to the Redmi Note 3, which was launched last year in India and went on to become the best-selling smartphone in the country. Essential features of the Redmi Note 4 include Snapdragon 625 processor, 4GB of RAM, and a 13-megapixel camera.
