Xiaomi’s Redmi Note was launched in Singapore on the 8th July 2014 and later at 12pm today, Xiaomi will be launching the Redmi Note 4G in Singapore. Similar to the previous launch, 5,000 sets of Redmi Note 4G will be made available.
The Redmi Note 4G will retail for S$229 while the Redmi Note will still be retailing for S$199.
The reason why Xiaomi is still selling the Redmi Note is because for the Redmi Note 4G, it supports LTE (duh!) and hence it no longer has support for dual SIM whereas the Redmi Note still supports dual SIM. So depending on your use-case, you can decide which Redmi Note to get or you can get both since it is so reasonably priced.
