The price of the SD660 is way higher than the SD650 fyi..
Many other maker is already at SD660.
SD660 in fact is cheaper then SD650/652 that was launched some 1 years plus. SD625 is the cheap one.

Anyway, this phone should be announced sometime mid NOV this year.

Very LG G6-like the front panel design. Judging from the dimensions, the 6-inch screen is going to make it quite a bit taller than the Note 4 (158.5mm vs 151mm). My only concern with Redmi phones is software updates in general, yes they may get new versions of MIUI down the road but the Android version underneath is lagging behind (my Redmi Note 3 SE still on Android 6.0 Marshmallow on MIUI 9 Global beta ROM ).

Maybe the Redmi series will probably only get one major Android update, following it will only be security updates or added MIUI features.

juz flash custom rom, so many to choose from

lineageos oreo alpha is out oredi

WTH did xiaomi implement TFT LCDs? its so deprecated

IPS and TFT are two types of lcd.

Thin Film Transistor (TFT)
An advanced version of LCD that uses an active matrix. Active matrix means that each pixel is attached to a transistor and capacitor individually. The advantage of having TFT displays is that they have a high contrast ratio and have low production cost, thus lowering the price of your device. However, they do not have good viewing angles and impressive color reproduction.

In-Plane Switching (IPS)
It is a further improvement on TFT LCDs. The way the crystals are electrically excited on them is different and the orientation of the crystal array is rotated. This orientation change improves viewing angles, contrast ratio and color reproduction. Energy consumption is also reduced compared to TFT LCDs. Because IPS LCDs tend to be better than TFT LCDs, they are also more expensive when put on a smartphone.

Shocking to see TFT LCD in the specs sheet. Am waiting for Note 5. Although I haven seen the real thing but if it's really using TFT, gonna look for other phones. Xiaomi is really going to be f up.

its not rumors, its TENAA certification

well maybe, just maybe, the Intl version will be IPS LCD, lol. or the dual cam, or Pro version

Indian market, xiaomi want to keep rmn5 at the same price point, as they are successful with rmn4, but came up with this TFT crap

would the ah nehs be fooled?

Would be nice if there's an option to select either Mi User Interface or pure Android version.

Xiaomi now making the same mistake as Samsung last time: flood their lineup with too many mediocre phones.

They are focusing the market on quantity and not quality.
In fact most sales of Xiaomi phone is mid to low end. The high end model is little.
Also, they have copy right issue is many countries unlike Huawei.

Actually, I don't see any fuss about the TFT.

Even the Mi Note 3 is also stated as TFT, when in actual fact it's using an IPS

The Redmi Note 4X is also stated as TFT too

http://shouji.tenaa.com.cn/Mobile/Mo...l3TfoSD5B%2fti

I believe TENAA refers all LCD as TFT, while referring all AMOLED as OLED.

May be not even timely security fixes. eg the recent WPA2 security issue.

The weekly MIUI Developer ROM has been updated to fix the WPA2 security issue.
