Earlier [On November 22nd]

As we mentioned around a month back, Xiaomi is all set to launch Redmi Note on November 24th – The details of the much awaited 5.5 inch phablet will be launched at an event on Monday (24th November). Redmi Note’s sales strategy will be not be any different from it’s predecessors – it will be launched exclusive on Flipkart and Xiaomi will adopt the same strategy of selling the phone in once-a-week-flash-sales strategy.

As of now the Redmi Note is priced at Rs. 9,999, however, Xiaomi may surprise their Indian fans by reducing the price by Rs. 1000 to Rs. 8,999 as they did with Redmi 1S. Even at Rs. 9,999 price point this is one the best value for money smartphones available in the market. But if atall the price is decreased, it will be safe to say that it will be the best bang-for-buck smartphone available to date!

The Redmi Note has a 5.5 inch HD IPS screen and boasts of superior specs that include 1.7 GHz octa-core processor coupled with 2GB RAM. It is dual-SIM and Note users can expand the storage using external SD card.

All in all, like Mi3 and Redmi 1S, Xiaomi sure has another supe-hit smartphone on hand.

While exact date is not announced as to when the first flash sale will commence, it is safe to say that the next sale after 25th Novemeber (when Redmi 1S may see the last of it’s sale) will be for Redmi Note.

So, you are one of those big screen smartphone fans, the Note is for you!

Earlier… [On Oct 15th]

The Chinese cellphone manufacturer, Xiaomi, which has already created waves in the Indian market with some awesomely designed and brilliantly performing phones in the Indian market, looks all set to release its next much awaited product, the Redmi Note India today.

Though there has been no official confirmation about the same from the makers themselves, the release looks imminent because they have already put up a picture and detailed specifications about the same on their official site, in addition to a blurred image on their Facebook and Twitter pages.

Hugo Barra had earlier confirmed a pre-Diwali launch for this much awaited phablet while talking to BGR India. And also mentioned that it would be priced at Rs 9,999.

Xiaomi, which is known to conduct flash sales on Tuesdays, had earlier announced the launch of Redmi 1S on October 14, a Tuesday again.

Redmi Note: Specifications and Features

Killer looks!

That is the first thing anyone would want to say after watching the first pictures of this phone.

Keeping in view the current fad for devices with larger screens, the new device will have a 5.5 inch HD IPS display. Whether you are reading messages, sending or receiving mails, playing games, reading an eBook or simply surfing the internet- this high quality large screen will make it a pleasure.

The official site mentions Redmi Note has a “178° in-plane switching (IPS) technology delivers stunning color consistency from almost any angle. With Glass-film-film (GFF) architecture, pixels sit closer to the glass, which allows colors to pop off the screen. Images are not only brighter, but are also less affected by glare.”

The rear camera comes with a 13MP resolution while the front camera is 5MP, making it a good choice for photography enthusiasts and selfie freaks alike.

A 28 millimeter wide-angle lens lets you capture more with each shot. More scenery, more friends, more of the moments that matter to you. Redmi’s ƒ/2.2 aperture and 28mm wide angle lens let you focus in on objects in the foreground of your shot, while softly blurring objects in the background,” claims Xiaomi.

The 1.7 GHz octa-core processor in the new Redmi Note MTK will be 78% faster than that of its predecessor, the quad-core MT6589T.

The device comes with 2 GB RAM, an 8GB internal memory and a slot for an external microSD card.

The 3,100 mAh lithium-polymer battery promises 14 hours of uninterrupted internet usage on a 3G connection, 38 hours on a 2G connection, 60 hours of nonstop music and 775 hours standby time which makes it one of the best choices for those whose battery gets drained out by lunch time on most days.

Further the phone comes with a dual SIM option– 1 WCDMA slot for 3G data and 1 GS slot for 2G data.

The device will be available in six colours- black, white, grey, pink, light blue and a darker blue.

At a price of Rs. 9999/-, this should be a big hit with people who want to have large display phones in their pocket. Given the response to their flagship MI 3 and mid-range Redmi 1S, it is quite evident that the new Redmi Note will also create the same frenzy as its siblings!

    I purchased REDMI note 4G on 30th of Jan 2015 at an Airtel store in Gachibowli, Hyderabad India. The specs are fantastic. The picture quality is good. The battery is too good. The speed is similar to using a laptop. I used my 32GB external SD card as a default storage. Now, I have tons of space for apps and games. Nice Phone.

    Please do not purchase Chinese company smartphones as we are indirectly supporting the Chinese economy. The smartphones of other countries eventhough has its components made in china will fetch only little profit to Chinese. This will reduce the profit margin of China.
    China is using its economic power to intrude Indian borders and also fund Pakistan for destabilizing India. Refrain buying chinese electronic goods for following reasons –
    1) Most Chinese goods are of low quality which Chinese dump in India. Check the SAR value of the phones of Chinese.
    2) Chinese are using their economic power to attack India and its other neighbours.
    3) There may be threat to your electronic devices being hacked.

    Please also search on google for the same and make an informed decision.
