Xiaomi’s brand new flagship smartphone, the Mi4
, is now available to buy in China, the company’s home country (where, as we type this, it’s Tuesday, July 29). Just like the Mi3 from last year, the Mi4 is a high-end device that doesn’t cost too much. Xiaomi is selling the 16GB model for around $320, and the 64GB model for around $405. Both models are available in two color versions: black and white.
Officially announced last week
, the Xiaomi Mi4 was presented as “the world’s fastest smartphone.” While we can’t verify this claim yet, we have to agree that the Mi4 is a heck of a handset for its price. Its features include a metal frame, a 5-inch 1080p display, 3GB of RAM, a quad-core 2.5GHz Snapdragon 801 processor, and a 3,080 mAh battery. There’s a 13MP camera on the back of the Mi4, and an 8MP camera on the front. The smartphone runs MIUI 6 UI, which is based on Android 4.4 KitKat.
Xiaomi shipped more than 10 million Mi3 units
until now, and it will probably ship even more Mi4 units. But we’ll see about that later this year.
The new Xiaomi smartphone will certainly be released in more markets in the near future (for example, Italy may be getting the handset starting next month
). Would you buy a Xiaomi Mi4 if it were available in your region?
