Xiaomi Redmi 4 Leaked in Images; Launch Expected Mid-September

Just a day after the launch of the Redmi 3S smartphone in India, its successor the Redmi 4 has purportedly been leaked in images. The leak exposes the smartphone from all angles, leaving little left in the unknown.

The Xiaomi Redmi 4 is sent to sport a circular shaped camera lens at the back with the flash sitting right beside it, and the fingerprint scanner underneath. Playfuldroid has leaked a silver colour variant sporting a full metal body with round edges. The smartphone comes with capacitive buttons at the front, and the bottom houses a Micro-USB port with speaker grilles on both sides. The volume and the power buttons are housed on the right edge of the device.

The images also tip that the Redmi 4 will sport a MediaTek Helio X20 processor with 2GB of RAM and 32GB of inbuilt storage. The smartphone will run on Android 6.0 Marshmallow-based MIUI 8 out-of-the-box. It’s too early for price speculations to start doing the rounds, but more leaks should surface as the launch date nears. The Redmi 4 is expected to be unveiled sometime in mid-September this year.
