Oh for god's sake. Can someone still find out which is the "new" device in that xiaomi naming-jungle?
Djeez, I thought the 5 was the newer model? Or is there a logic behind this? 4-series mediatek-SoC's and 5-series Qualcom-SoC's perhaps?
Then they wonder why these guys never gain any market outside of China...
Dude, 18 Jan 2017I find this very disrespectful to people who already about the Redmi 4 line. Why not design a ... moreMe too, and after they released 3 and 3 pro and then they released 3s/prime/X. It just felt weird in the redmi 3 lines. Like they couldn't release the normal ones with no annoying black border.
Xiaomi trims the bezels by replacing them with thick black borders hahaha are you Serious? Only in China lol
This is so disrespectful for people who just brought the older Redmi 4.
they probably did that for indian release or maybe to not look like leeco devices
Dude, 18 Jan 2017I find this very disrespectful to people who already about the Redmi 4 line. Why not design a ... moreif you bought gray version that is most popular you lose nothing. you knew what you were buying it bezels were ok on light colors you shouldn't complain later
I find this very disrespectful to people who already about the Redmi 4 line. Why not design a phone the way it was meant to look and release it, rather than release a half assed design and then release a nicer looking version shortly after... Typical Xiaomi
When I zoomed in in the picture, for me it looked like they just now painted the black border in white. I am the one who wrote that they should rename it to 4R, but now it looks like they just changed the Colorway a little bit.
Anonymous, 18 Jan 2017Well, new ones would be released. But above users are right. Should be renamed to Redmi 4S or ... moreBut if they release it too late there will be almost no cases or replacement parts for it, which is the case for the international/special edition Redmi Note 3 which is longer than the Chinese/Indian version and has almost no accessories. There are some official accessories but they are only sold in Taiwan.
If they release a Redmi 4S we want global LTE support as well, global ROM with China/India bands isn't enough.
AnonD-368020, 18 Jan 2017I always wonder Who the hell likes Those thick black borders on white body phone? On black bod... moreExactly but what happened here was they trimmed the bezels but thickened the black useless borders
This is good news. I bought the Redmi 3S AFTER the Redmi 4's came out, precisely because I wanted a compact phone and the Redmi 4 was a bit wider and longer but also a lot heavier - 156 grams vs 144 for the 3S. OK the 4's weight is not brick-like but if you want a compact phone you prefer lighter over heavier. I mentioned this complaint a number of times in blogs like this. Maybe they heard me?? I am curious to see what the new models weigh! Now they need to do the same with the Mi 5S - which is wider and longer than the Mi 5 despite having the same screen size.
DaXiong, 18 Jan 2017So suddenly the cases and the replacement parts will no longer fit? Not so good actually...Well, new ones would be released. But above users are right. Should be renamed to Redmi 4S or something similar.
Anonymous, 18 Jan 2017Now this is awesome. But they should've made it clear, for example give it a new name like Redmi 4RI agree. They should have released it with an official global rom and could've named it Redmi 4s.
