$135 Redmi Note 4 Helio X20 Deca-core Smartphone Includes a 4,100 mAh Battery

A few months ago I wrote about sub $200 ARM Cortex A72 Android smartphones, but Xiaomi is now further lowering the price point with their Redmi Note 4 powered by Mediatek Helio X20 processor with 16GB storage, a 5.5″ display, a 13MP camera, and a large 4,100 mAh battery selling for just 899  RMB (~$135).

Xiaomi_Redmi_Note_4Redmi Note 4 Specifications:

  • SoC – Mediatek Helio X20 (MT6797) deca-core processor with 2x Cortex A72 cores @ 2.1 GHz, 4x Cortex A53 cores @ 2.0 GHz, and 4x Cortex A53 cores @ 1.4 GHz and ARM Mali-T880MP4 GPU @ 700 Mhz

The phone will run Android (MIUI 8.0), and ship with a charger and USB data cable, a pin, warranty cards, and a quick start guide. For some reasons, the CPU and GPU frequencies are lower than the one advertised on other model, but I don’t know if it is because of honesty, or a desire to reduce power consumption.

As you’ve must have noticed from the specifications there’s also a 3GB/64GB model, and it’s selling for 1199 RMB (~$180). The phone is only available in China for now, but it will soon sell online worldwide like the other models. More details can be found on Redmi Note 4 page (in Chinese).

Xiaomi has some presence here in In Indonesia, but the products are very slow to market and difficult to find over the counter. This is too bad as Indonesia could be a big market for them, if they just made the effort.
