When Xiaomi President Lin Bin was asked which phone he thinks is the cheapest 4GB RAM + 64GB storage phone in the market. His response was the company’s Redmi 4X. Xiaomi has a reputation for building quality models that get slammed super cheap price tags. The Xiaomi Redmi 4X is no exception, coming in at 699 Yuan (~$102) for the 2GB RAM + 16GB version and going for as low as 1099 Yuan (~$159) for the 4GB + 64GB version which was introduced in April this year. But that price has taken a further dip as No. 1 Shop is offering the Redmi 4X 4GB + 64GB version at a reduced price of 979 Yuan (~$144), less than a thousand Yuan!
The Redmi 4X price cut on No. 1 Shop seems to cut across all the versions of the device as the 3GB + 32GB version is now up for 859 Yuan (~$126) instead of 899 Yuan (~$132). Also, the 2GB + 16GB version has a slightly reduced 689 Yuan (~$101) price tag as against the usual price of 699 Yuan (~$102). The offer comes with free shipping option and buyers also get the option of payment on delivery. In case you’re wondering why the price cut, Xiaomi isn’t clearing up for a Redmi 5X or something but No. 1 Shop is celebrating its 9th anniversary. The online e-commerce shop was launched in July 2008.
As a reminder, the Xiaomi Redmi 4X comes with a 5-inch 720p display with 2.5D glass on top and a smooth metal body, curved around the corners. The phone is powered by an octa-core Snapdragon 435 chipset and there is a large 4100mAh battery under the hood which should ensure at least two days of comfortable usage on a single charge. The Redmi 4X also packs a 13MP rear camera with f/2.0 aperture, 5P lens, PDAF and LED flash while there is a 5MP selfie shooter with f/2.2 aperture.
The Redmi 4X comes with a slim 8.65mm body (despite featuring a large 4100mAh battery in a compact 5-inch form factor). At the back, there is also a fingerprint sensor, which is a great addition at this price. The smartphone is available in Cherry Blossom, Champagne Gold and Matte Black colours.
