16GB Xiaomi Mi 4 to be sold in India today via flash sale; 64GB model coming February 24th
While Xiaomi is under a court order in India right now, it can still sell handsets powered by Qualcomm. The company is expected to sell on Tuesday, at 2PM Indian time, the 16GB Xiaomi Mi 4 (in white, only). Sales will be done via a flash sale over online retailer Flipkart's website, and only registered buyers can take part.
This is the first time that the high-end Mi 4 is available in India, and since it is powered by a Snapdragon 801 CPU, the device is not banned in the country. A lawsuit with Ericsson over eight patents led to a court order banning Xiaomi from selling handsets using MediaTek chips in India. Xiaomi has until March 18th to sell Snapdragon driven phones in the country, and it must deposit $1.61 USD with the Registrar General of the Delhi High Court for each phone it sells.
The Mi 4 is priced at the equivalent of $320 USD. The company plans on launching the 64GB variant of the phone in India on February 24th, priced at the equivalent of $385 USD. The Xiaomi Mi 4 is equipped with a 5-inch display offering a resolution of 1080 x 1920. A quad-core 2.5GHz Snapdragon 801 CPU is under the hood with the Adreno 330 GPU handling graphics. 3GB of RAM is inside and a 13MP camera adorns the back of the handset. An 8MP "selfie" snapper is on the front of the phone. A 3080mAh battery keeps the lights on, and Android 4.4 is pre-installed along with Xiaomi's MIUI 6 skin running on top.
