Last month, Xiaomi in India had launched the two variants of Redmi Note, the Redmi Note at Rs. 8,999 and the Redmi Note 4G at Rs. 9,999. Till date, only the MediaTek-based 3G variant had gone up for sale, while the Qualcomm-based 4G variant was scheduled to become available in the second-half of December.

However, the Xiaomi has been temporarily banned from selling handsets in India not powered by Qualcomm chipsets, as they are alleged to infringe on Ericsson's patents. The Swedish firm had earlier this month moved the Delhi High Court to pass an injunction order that banned import and sales of Xiaomi handsets until patent issues were resolved, but Xiaomi scored a reprieve last week, and this week held it's first flash sale again, with the Qualcomm-based Redmi 1S.

On December 2, 50,000 units of the smartphone were sold out in 6 seconds, whereas, on December 9, 75,000 went out of stock in just 8 seconds, claimed Xiaomi.

The Redmi Note 4G, unlike the Redmi Note, will be also available in Airtel stores in six cities, for which there are no details provided by the company as yet. Customers will have to register separately to buy a Redmi Note 4G from Airtel stores.

Featuring single-SIM support, the Xiaomi Redmi Note 4G runs on Android 4.4.2 KitKat OS with MIUI v5 skin on top. During the launch in India, Xiaomi had indicated that updates to Android 5 Lollipop will be available in the future, but there is no time frame.
