Xiaomi is the biggest brand in years, making huge strides in very little time, and for some very good reasons. First of all their phones are top-spec, which isn't necessarily unique in the world of smartphones, but the prices help set those specs apart from the rest of the phones out there. Xiaomi's phones are, for all intents and purposes, super cheap for how they are built, meaning OnePlus isn't the only game in town making a top-spec phone for a low-spec price. On top of the Xiaomi makes its own version of Android called MiUI, which is sort of a visual and functional hybrid between iOS and Android. It offers the simple, large icon home screen of iOS with widget support added of course, as well as the features and robust environment that Android provides. Plus there's more customization available to the user than almost any other mobile OS out there, save for maybe CyanogenMod on the OnePlus One.
Xiaomi's next big phone, the Mi4, has been rumored for quite some time now, and it looks to be their best creation yet. Featuring an all-metal body and some of the thinnest bezels ever, Xiaomi is set to deliver something truly incredible very soon. Let's not forget that the Mi4 is going to be one of the first phones on the market powered by the incomparable Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 processor and packs a rather amazing QHD 2K display. 3GB of RAM keeps all that information ready for use when you are, and the 16MP Sony camera with Optical Image Stabilization (OIS) on the back proves that this could be the camera to outdo all the others on the market. A 3,200mAH will easily get you through a full day's use practically no matter what you do on the device, and 4G LTE will make sure you're not waiting at all when using the Web.
The leaked shots below are supposed to be press renders of the phone, and jive well with what we've seen of the device in other leaks. These are some seriously high quality leaks, and we won't have long to find out how real they are since Xiaomi is going to be officially announcing the phone in just a few days on July 22nd! Stay peeled here for more as it comes!
