Although Xiaomi has only announced the device for China, it's very likely it'll make its way to other nearby markets — particularly India, where the Redmi Note 3 was a big success. However, if the Note 4 does follow in the Note 3's footsteps, it'll be with a different processor. Android Authority reports that Xiaomi is still banned from using MediaTek processors in India due to a legal battle with Ericsson.
