Xiaomi has announced the launch of the Redmi 4, successor to the hugely popular Redmi 3s / 3s Prime at an event in Delhi. Redmi 3s is the highest selling online phone with more than 4 million units already shipped.

Like other Xiaomi phones, this too is a bang for buck. While 5.5 inch is the norm today, Redmi 4 continues with 5 inch screen. And this is a welcome move because not everyone wants a phablet.  Unlike Redmi 3s, this one also comes in 4 GB/ 64 GB memory configuration. Let’s have a look at what it has to offer.
