The Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 which was released in the middle of the year was a good smartphone, but some people weren’t happy with the fact that it came with a MediaTek processor. Now Xiaomi has launched a variant of the smartphone, the Xiaomi Redmi Note 4X with a Snapdragon processor.
The Redmi Note 4X has pretty much the same specs as the Note 4, with the only difference being in the processors. The Apple of China also released a special edition of the Redmi Note 4X called the Xiaomi Redmi Note 4X Hatsune Miku Special Edition which comes in a distinct package which contains a Limited edition Mi power bank and distinctive designs.
