Last week, Xiaomi on Twitter teased a smartphone poster inciting speculations that company might release the Redmi Note 2 Prime in India on 15 December.
However, it was later reported that Redmi Note 2 Prime launch might not take place as the device runs on the MediaTek processor, which violates Ericsson's patent in India.
Xiaomi was asked to stop selling MediaTek CPU powered Redmi Note (1st Gen) in India over same Ericsson's patent issue. The Chinese company was allowed to sell only the Snapdragon 400 processor based Redmi Note 4G.
Now Xiaomi, in its bid to clear the air over the speculations, has tweeted a series of hints revealing that the company will unveil Redmi Note 4G Prime and also disclosed some features and even the price of the device.
Redmi Note 4G is confirmed to feature 5.5-inch HD (1280x720p) display same as the original model, but will have double the storage capacity (16GB), with an option of expansion of up to 32GB.
It is also said to house the Qualcomm's 1.2GHz Snapdragon 410 (ARM Cortex A53) quad-core SoC (System on Chip), which is said to be 50% more powerful than Snapdragon 400 series seen inside the Redmi Note 4G.
In the latest tweet, Xiaomi has teased half display of the Redmi Note 4G with a notebook beside it showing '99 99', hinting that the device might cost Rs. 9999 as the original model's launch price.
Other features such as RAM, camera and battery capacity are yet to be revealed by the company. We just have to wait for a few more hours to finally know what Xiaomi has in store for fans on Tuesday. Watch this space for more updates.
