We just got our hands-on with the Xiaomi Redmi 4X (Global version), so here are some unboxing pictures of the phone and our first impressions of it.

Redmi 4X or Redmi 4, both of these devices are exactly the same. Xiaomi launched Redmi 4 in India, and the same phone has been launched in China, Malaysia and now in Pakistan by the name of Redmi 4X. Why the name change? We have absolutely no idea about that. Both of these phones have the same, specs, same chipsets, same MIUI builds with the same update / fastboot files.
