The Xiaomi Redmi 3 launched in January and saw multiple revisions (3s, Pro, Prime), but the new Redmi 4 is quickly clearing the regulatory hurdles to gaining an official status.
Info coming out of China suggests that the new model will upgrade the 5 screen to 1080p resolution (up from 720p) and the 13MP camera on the back gains a second LED for its flash (the selfie cam remains at 5MP).
The Xiaomi Redmi 4 is powered by an unnamed Snapdragon chipset with an octa-core processor, a Snapdragon 430 perhaps? Its paired to 3GB of RAM and 32GB storage, same as the most recent editions of the 3 like the 3s Prime. The metal body will be available in Gray, Silver and Gold and will house a 4,000mAh battery, essentially the same as previous versions.

The phone will allegedly launch at CNY 1,300 ($190/175), close to double what the original Redmi 3 cost. By the way, the international version of the Redmi 3s is 160 currently.
