Launched late a year ago in China, Xiaomi is ready to bring the affordable Redmi 4A to India. Yes, the smartphone which reached a million mark within 2 months of its launch will be available for pre-orders starting from this week. Moreover, the flash sales commence only on Wednesday and only limited units are available, which makes it more of a task to buy one for yourself.

After a fair bit of success with Redmi Note 3 and Redmi 3S last year and with Redmi Note 4 this year, Xiaomi is buckling up with another victor in the budget smartphone category.

Apart from offline availability, the company has also announced that the Redmi Note 4 will be going on sale via Mi.com in the last week of March. It remains to be seen if Xiaomi goes ahead with pricing the Redmi 4A aggressively. The phone is now on sale for offline customer in limited cities. While in offline stores, the price of the Redmi Note 4 will be 11,499 INR, or about $176, according to Gadgets 360.

The Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 is now one of the most affordable smartphones in the market, which makes it a good option for users who are looking to get a bang for their buck.

The device will also be sold, from the 18th of March at large retailers and post 22nd March at offline stores in the same cities.

The reason behind this move is pretty predictable.

With the Redmi Note 4, Xiaomi introduced the phone at three price points. It is competing against the likes of Huawei, Oppo, and Vivo in the Chinese market. We must also not forget that Xiaomi has fallen from the top position in market share in its homeland China, which is also one of the reasons. Albeit not in the form of an entirely new product, but in the form of a new variant of an available product. It is the Xiaomi's entry-level smartphone that sports a 5-inches HD display and is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 425 SoC coupled with 2GB of RAM and 16GB storage with a microSD card slot. On the front, it will come with a 5-megapixel camera. While the Moto G5 Plus runs on Android 7.0 (Nougat) operating system, the Redmi Note 4 is still on Android 6.0 (Marshmallow).
