Watch Xiaomi Mi 4i announcement live stream here: “i Is Coming”

The Xiaomi Mi 4i is coming, and it's expected to bring a little revolution when it comes to affordable flagship-grade smartphones with an alluring price to feature set.

Xiaomi, the world's biggest start-up, valued at some $45 billion (Uber, the car hauling company, is second with $40 billion valuation) has now announced that it will livestream the event live from New Delhi in India. India also happens to be the expected primary market for the Xiaomi Mi 4i. An extremely price-sensitive market, India is a huge opportunity for Xiaomi, as it is the world's second most-populated country and smartphone penetration is still low compared with the rest of the developed world.

What do we expect to see in the Xiaomi Mi 4i? First, it will clearly be based on the widely successful Mi 4 handset, but speculations run rampant that it might be made out of plastic to allow for greater cutting in costs. Xiaomi has so far released five teasers for the Mi 4i: one relating to its high resolution, another one dedicated to craftsmanship involved in its making, a third one suggesting it has managed to fit a larger battery than most, and finally two that suggest the Mi 4i will carry a nicer feeling when you touch the body of the phone and be more comfortable to hold.

That's all pretty vague, but the official Xiaomi Mi 4i unveiling event will kick off soon, revealing all the details. You can tune in and watch it live here (the broadcast will be in English, not Chinese):

"i IS COMING" Sounds grammatically incorrect.

Apple is ditching the "i" lately: Apple pay, Apple watch, CarPlay... And guess who is picking all those "i" in apples dumpster, not to mention promotional artwork (the faint multicolor patten background recently seen on banners of apples announcements. By the way, the "i" is already here - it's called an iPhone.

Also the flower wallpaper is very similar to what Apple used for their Spring Forward event not long ago

Their live stream sucks, slow and jumpy. Still hooked and running on flash player. Should have made it with a youtube channel.
