Xiaomi India is all set to launch the successor of its best selling smartphone (Redmi Note 3) known as Redmi Note 4 in India on January 19, 2017. The company has sent out a media invite for the launch of a new product and it is likely to be the Redmi Note 4 since they had announced its Mi explorer program from the device last month. The smartphone was unveiled in China back in August 2016 but the Indian variant will come with a Snapdragon processor instead of a MediaTek Helio X20 chipset.
