Xiaomi is likely to release Redmi 4 in India on May 16. Xiaomi has not made any official comment on the launch date of the Redmi 4 series, but going by the #PowerInYourHand contest deadline (May 15) and winners' name announcement date (May 18), we believe that Xiaomi is most likely to launch Redmi 4 next week.

Last week, Manu Kumar Jain, Xiaomi India chief and vice president (global), had taken to Twitter to announce that the company will launch a new Redmi 4 series phone later this month.

Earlier in the month, Xiaomi had also revealed that there will be three big announcements in May. The first being the launch of India's first Mi Home Store in Bengaluru on May 11. So, logical intuition dictates us to believe that Redmi 4 in all probability will be the second big announcement (most likely to happen between May 16-May 18) and the third and final event is expected to happen in the following week (May 22-May 28).
