Want to see what's inside the Xiaomi Mi 4? Take a sneak peek here

Several days ago, we witnessed the unveiling of Xiaomi's latest and, allegedly, most powerful smartphone in the world at the moment, the Xiaomi Mi 4. These words might indeed hold water, as the device packs top-end hardware specs - a quad-core Snapdragon 801, ticking at 2.5GHz, 3GB of RAM, a large 3080mAh power bank at the back, and a 13MP rear camera with an aperture of f/1.8. All in all, both of our specs comparisons showed that the device is pretty much on par with most of the popular flagships devices out there, if not better. 

As the whole shebang comes with a pretty adequate and affordable price tag (around $320 for the 16GB model and roughly $400 for the 64GB one in China), probably a quite large crowd of potential buyers will be eyeing it with desire over the following months, hoping that it will eventually make its way outside of China, Singapore, and the several other local markets. We are on the exact same bandwagon, too. 

Well, we don't know if or when that might happen, but just came across a disassembly of the device, which allows us to peek below back cover of the Xiaomi Mi 4, which is swappable (you can check out the available covers in the gallery at the beginning of the article). The usual suspect – iFixit – is not responsible for this teardown. Alas, this does not prevent us from carefully examining each and every bit of silicon. Check the disassembly yourselves below.

Love the way it looks, like an iPhone 5 and Galaxy S5 into one, plus a variety of back covers like the Moto X. They took the best of everything and put it into one. They just need to come to the US market now, but I don't think that'll be anytime soon.

Why do PA writers keep saying 32gb for the $400 model? This is the second time I saw this error. Xiaomi confirmed that there will be only 16 and 64gb variants.

I just hope this phone comes to the US market with compatible T-Mobile LTE bands because, I WILL BUY.
Hopefully there won't be any INVITE SYSTEM! *secretly aimed at Oneplus*

What was secret about that? I highly doubt anyone was confused as to what you were referring to.
