The only difference in this smartphone is the ‘Lake Blue’ color. It is important to note that this edition will only be available in 4 GB RAM and 64 GB internal storage.
Redmi Note 4: Wake the Lake Project
This new edition of the Redmi Note 4 is because of the ‘Wake the Lake’ project. With regards to this project, ‘Xiaomi has taken the responsibility’ to restore Kempabudhi kerre lake in Bengaluru. This variant will go on sale from 12 pm on 4 September, 2017. Buyers can go to Mi.com, Flipkart or Mi Homes. From there, they can buy the ‘Lake Blue’ version of Redmi Note 4.
Manu Kumar Jain, who is the Vice President of Xiaomi and Managing Director of Xiaomi India, said in a statement, “We are a company who believes in giving back to the community. Water bodies have been the source of water for ages for people of Bengaluru but over the past decade, these water bodies have been facing a serious threat. To show our concern for the cause we are taking up the maintenance of Kempabudhi kerre, to support BBMP in bringing it back to its initial days of glory as a project under Swachh Bharat Abhiyan. To commemorate this cause, we are launching Redmi Note 4 Lake blue edition which would further contribute to this cause.”
The device has a new 13MP camera at the back, which also has PDAF (phase detection auto focus), along with a dual tone LED flash. The front camera is 5MP. The device also supports dual-SIM card slots (hybrid SIM card slot), 4G with VoLTE, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, GPS with GLONASS, an infrared sensor, and a microUSB port. The device also has a fingerprint scanner at the back. The smartphone is fueled with 4,100mAh battery to provide the juice.
