Go to reply no.
After a couple of days of researches, this is what i found: there are three versions of Redmi Note 4 with a Qualcomm processor:

INDIAN WEBSITE:
http://www.mi.com/in/note4/specs/
LTE Bands: B3 / B5 / B40
Rom (GLOBAL)
http://en.miui.com/download-309.html#468

TAIWANESE WEBSITE:
http://www.mi.com/tw/redminote4x/specs/
Bands: B1/B3/B4/B5/B7/B8/B20
Rom (CHINA)
http://en.miui.com/download-321.html

CINESE WEBSITE:
http://www.mi.com/redminote4x/specs/
Bande: B1 / B3 / B5 / B7 / B38 / B39 / B40 / B41
Rom (CHINA)
http://en.miui.com/download-321.html

Can somebody explain to me why this website

http://www.honorbuy.it/150-redmi-note-4-internazionale

claims to have an INTERNATIONAL VERSION of Redmi Note 4 (not 4x, only 4 that should be the INDIAN version) with all the LTE bands UNLOCKED (like the Taiwanese one) and with a GLOBAL ROM (that exists only for the Redmi Note 4 SD INDIAN VERSION and not for the Redmi Note 4x).

If somebody can confirm that there's a Redmi Note 4 SD with all the LTE bands unlocked and a Global Rom, would mean that there are actually FOUR VERSION of the same phone on the market. This would be INSANE...

I'd say the Taiwan version will only come with Global ROM and not China ROM as you have listed. The Honorbuy product is likely for the Taiwan version. In the description, they say to expect shipment around 8th March, if you ordered early. 1 week after the Taiwan version is due to be first released.

If you look at the Redmi Note 3 ROMs:
http://en.miui.com/download-301.html#449
The "Special Edition" which was Taiwan's version only came with Global ROM and not China ROM. I believe the China ROM contains apps for services that are only used in China, so I doubt the Taiwan Redmi Note 4X would retail in Taiwan with China ROM considering their Redmi Note 3 doesn't.

You said Global ROM only exists for the Indian SD Redmi Note 4 and not the Redmi Note 4X but that's only according to the downloads section availability. If you look at this thread:
http://en.miui.com/thread-465038-1-1.html
The Redmi 4A with Global ROM was first seen from a re-seller and stores like Honorbuy were selling a Global version with Global ROM and more LTE bands before the Global ROM itself became available to download.

I think I may have been mistaken with my earlier reply and there does appear to be 4 variants. On closer inspection the one sold by Honorbuy may not be the Taiwan version as they titled it as just "Note 4" and not "Note 4X"

I came across this listing:
https://www.aliexpress.com/item/Global-Version-Xiaomi-Redmi-Note-4-Mobile-Phone-3GB-RAM-32GB-ROM-Snapdragon-625-Octa-Core/32795263337.html
It includes pictures of the box:

It is named Redmi Note 4 and has CE1317 certification just like the Indian model. However if you look at YouTube videos of the Indian Redmi Note 4 unboxing, their version has a "Made in India" tag on the back and does not have a "Global Version" tag at the side. This version also says "Made in China" at the bottom.
I found this unboxing video:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0FV-gD-dV6E
Which I believe is the same one from the Aliexpress listing and likely the same one Honorbuy are selling. It appears to be the Indonesian market. So there seems to be a 4th Snapdragon Note 4. The Indonesian variant that is named Redmi Note 4 like the Indian version but has the same LTE bands as the Taiwan Redmi Note 4X.

There isn't a Redmi Note 4 section of the Indonesian MI site, but their Redmi 4A has the same bands:
http://www.mi.com/id/redmi4a/specs/
So the Redmi 4A that I mentioned in my previous reply which appeared before the Global ROM was available to download could have been the Indonesian variant and this judging from the unboxing video above, the Redmi Note 4 "Global" version also appears to be Indonesian.

Redmi Note 4 is not released yet in Indonesia. If they release it, it will be Made in Indonesia.
