According to the SIRIM database, a new Xiaomi smartphone equipped with 4G LTE and 802.11ac WiFi has just received local certification. With the model number 2014715, rumor has it that this device might just be the Redmi Note 4G or the Mi 4. Either way, it is something to get super excited about!
Singapore has also been spotted on the radar to be receiving the 2014715 device and the R1D Mi Router via their certification database as well. We’re hoping to see the 4G device in our market soon!
Why? Well, only the Redmi Note 4G has support for FDD-LTE that’s compatible with our local 4G LTE standards. The Mi 4 and Redmi 1S 4G variants only supports TDD-LTE that’s being used in China and India. This makes its more likely that the device that received the SIRIM certification is in fact the Xiaomi Redmi Note 4G.
The Xiaomi Redmi Note 4G does not have a dual SIM slot but instead sports a single SIM feature with 4G LTE. It runs on a Quad-Core 1.6GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 mated with 2GB of RAM. The device supports 802.11ac which is faster than the previous supported 802.11n in terms of Wi Fi connectivity.
The remainder of the specs are basically a mirror image of the original Redmi Note. It sports a 5.5 inch HD 720 p display with 8 GB worth of internal storage. There is a 13 megapixel camera on its back and a 5 megapixel camera on its front. A 3200 mAh battery powers the device. We’re expecting the device to be about MYR 500 as it sells for CNY 999 in China.
