Xiaomi has released the company’s Mi 4i mid-ranger in India a week ago, on April 23rd. This is a mid-range handset, but a really capable and really well-built mid-ranger. One of the main selling points of this device is its price, no doubt about that. The Xiaomi Mi 4i is priced at $204 in India and that might actually be its number 1 selling point. That being said, the Mi 4i is touted to be Xiaomi’s ‘global handset’ and the company has even called it a flagship device, though its specs tell a completely another story. Either way, Xiaomi did say that the device will launch in a number of countries following India, and now we have some more info regarding that, read on.
First and foremost, let’s just mention that the first flash sale of the Xiaomi Mi 4i is going to take place today through Flipkart. The sale will start at 2pm IST for those consumers who pre-registered for it, of course. Xiaomi has confirmed that around 300 000 people actually registered for this sale, but we still don’t know how many devices will be available. The phone will be available from other retailers as well soon, and quite probably also directly from the company’s website. Regarding the availability in other markets, it has been confirmed that the Xiaomi Mi 4i will launch in Taiwan on May 7. The phone will also launch in Hong Kong, Malaysia, Singapore and Indonesia in May, we just don’t know when exactly. The phone will be priced around NT$ 6,000-7,000 ($197-230) in Taiwan.
The Xiaomi Mi 4i sports a 5-inch 1080p (1920 x 1080) Sharp / JDI fully laminated display along with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of in-built non-expandable storage. This handset is powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 615 64-bit octa-core processor which ships with an Adreno 405 GPU for graphics rendering. On the back of this device you’ll find a 13-megapixel camera (f/2.0 aperture) along with a dual-LED, dual tone flash. The 5-megapixel shooter is available on the front side of this device. The Xiaomi Mi 4i ships with a 3,120mAh battery (Quick Charge included), and is only 7.8mm thick, while it weighs 130 grams. In case you’d like to check out Mi 4i’s full specs, click here.
