Xiaomi appears to be getting back into the game. The Chinese smartphone-manufacturer has launched the Mi Max, Mi 5 and Redmi Note 3 smartphones this year, and rumours about the successor of the popular Redmi Note 3 are already making headlines.

Chinese publication MyDrivers has reported that the new mid-range smartphone, rumoured to be called the Redmi Note 4, will be available in two models differentiated by their processors. According to the report, the entry-level model of the Redmi Note 4 will be powered by a Helio P10 octa-core processor and the high-end model will sport a Helio X20 deca-core SoC by MediaTek.

The report suggests the unannounced handset will sport a 5.5-inch display and a 13MP primary camera, as seen in the Redmi Note 3. But the rumour is also suggesting that there will be a dual-camera setup, which is however unverified at this time.

Further details about the Redmi Note 4 are under wraps, which is understandable considering this is the first bit of information that has popped up online. According to Android Geeks, the handset is expected to be announced sometime in August this year, which leaves us with ample time to dig up more information on the device ahead of its launch.

Meanwhile, Xiaomi has been enjoying the success of its current smartphone line-up in China and India, its biggest markets. The recently-launched Mi Max had received more than 8 million registrations from the first flash sale, which went live on Tuesday, May 17. The company's Redmi Note 3 also achieved an impressive feat in India as the company's global VP Hugo Barra announced that it had sold over 6 lakh units in just two months.
