Redmi Note 4 is expected to arrive this month, and from the previous leak and teaser image, we found out that the device is going to sport an attractive design and possibly a dual-camera feature as well. However, what we did not know was the sort of hardware present underneath its hood, but a MediaTek Helio X20 is going to be among that configuration, plus a massive battery capacity as well.
Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 Expected To Feature A 4,100mAh Battery, A Dual-Camera And A Deca-Core Processor
Xiaomi is definitely going to raise with the bar when it officially announces its Redmi Note 4. Since the smartphone belongs to the Note series of handsets, it is going to feature a phablet form factor. A screen size of 5.5 inches has been listed, and we assume that the resolution is going to be retained at 1080p to allow for additional talk-time to the user. The biggest change is going to come from the hardware and we honestly never expected a Helio X20 to be part of the internals.
For those that don’t know, MediaTek Helio X20, or MT6797 is the company’s flagship SoC and features a 10-core processor. Cortex-A72 and Cortex-A53 will be paired together in ARM’s big.LITTLE architecture and will feature the following processing cores and clock speed.
- Two processing cores running at 2.5GHz
- Four processing cores running at 2.0GHz
- Four processing cores running at 1.4GHz
While it has already been stated earlier that Helio X20 will be consuming 30-40 percent less power, MediaTek credits its own CorePilot 3.0 algorithm present in the mobile SoC for substantially reducing that power consumption. This is because the algorithm will be distributing the load across the CPU and GPU (depending on the task that is being carried out), reducing power consumption effectively. The graphics processor running inside the mobile SoC will be none other than Mali-T880, which features four GPU cores running at a clock speed of 700MHz.

While a Helio X20 is going to be present, we suspect that 3GB of LPDDR3 will supplement the performance of the processor, and a Snapdragon 652 could be present in the international variant of the device. This is probably not going to be the only dual-camera smartphone from Xiaomi, since there are rumors that both Mi Note 2 and Mi5s will come stacked with the same upgrade. However, consumers will get the chance to play around with a dual-camera device at considerable savings because Redmi Note 4 could most likely come with an affordable price.
