Xiaomi has been making massive waves in the smartphone industry over the last year. Which is becoming increasingly impressive when you consider the company is only a few years old. That said, this business model is one which is much older, offer the consumer a lot of specs, in a premium device but at a much lower price than the competitors. This is a prime example of the logic being used by many Chinese OEMs. However, few have managed to reach the dizzy heights that Xiaomi has and in such a short amount of time.
Without a doubt, the company's flagship range is their Xiaomi Mi range with the latest flagship being the Xiaomi Mi4. However, recently, the company released a more affordably priced version of the Mi 4 in the form of the Xiaomi Mi 4i. Although, this might be a more affordable handset than the Mi 4, that does not mean it is not a powerful one. The Xiaomi Mi 4i comes with a 5-inch display with a 1920 x 1080 resolution. Inside, the Mi 4i comes equipped with 2GB RAM and powered by a 64-bit Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 octa-core processor, coupled with an Adreno 405 for processing the graphics. In terms of cameras, the Mi 4i comes loaded with a 13-megapixel rear camera, along with a 5-megapixel front facing option. Additional features on offer include 16GB internal storage, a 3,120 mAh battery, dual-SIM, 4G LTE support and running on Android 5.0 (Lollipop).
