New Xiaomi Mi 4s price and release date

Hugo Barra is still on stage talking about the virtues of the brand new Xiaomi Mi 5, its ceramic body, and its Snapdragon 820 value for money exchange, but it's another handset that really grabbed out attention - the updated Mi 4s version that Xiaomi just announced. With metal frame, sandwiched between two glass halves, and with a new round finger scanner on the back, it is a thing of beauty, and is available pretty in pink, too. 

The phone has almost the same specs as the Mi 4c last year, meaning a 5" 1080p display, Snapdragon 808, 3 GB of RAM, 13 MP camera and 3260 mAh battery, but it now comes in a much sleeker body, with a fingerprint scanner, and with a price to die for, at least in China.

Moreover, Xiaomi has upgraded the Mi 4s internal storage to the whopping 64 GB, which, at just about $260, is a grand bargain, no matter how you slice it, when the phone hits in March, together with the Mi 5. That is, of course, the price in China if you buy directly from Xiaomi, but even when it gets through resellers and global shipments, it is unlikely to cross the $300 mark by much, if history is any indication, and that is a pretty good price for such a pretty, well-equipped phone, don't you think?

Its looks better than Mi5.. Why dont they release SD820 version of this. Put Mi 4c and Mi5 side by side. You will find out how ugly is Mi5 compared to Mi4s.

If this isn't compatible with US carriers they aren't growing their business. I've not read anything about this coming to the US or did I miss it?
