Xiaomi Mi 4 price and release date

Xiaomi Mi 4 price and release date

The Xiaomi Mi 4 has just been unveiled with a splash: it’s not only a top-shelf device with the latest Snapdragon 801 system chip powering it, and a beautiful design with a metal frame - it’s also half the price of other flagships. That is in China (and the few other markets like Singapore) where you can buy the Mi 4 - it will not be available officially in the Western hemisphere.

While phones like the Apple iPhone 5s and Samsung Galaxy S5 come with an off-contract, full retail price of $650, the Xiaomi Mi 4 price is almost exactly half that. Keep in mind that in countries like the United States, where the phone can only be find unofficially, the price would be higher. With this in mind, Xiaomi announced the following official prices for the Mi 4:

  • 1999 yuan (around $320) for Xiaomi Mi 4 16GB model 
  • 2499 yuan (around $400) fpr Xiaomi Mi 4 64GB model

This makes the Mi 4 more affordable than even Google’s Nexus phones that are also typically sold at lower prices (the Nexus 5 costs $350 off-contract).

Being such a luring combination of top-notch specs and affordability, you might be wondering when can you buy this phone.

The Xiaomi Mi 4 release date is set for as soon as July for the China Unicom version, and August for another China-bound version, while in September Xiaomi expects to launch a 4G version for more markets (but again, don't expect to see it in Europe and the United States just yet). Good news is that Xiaomi plans to build a lot of those phones with 1 million units expected to be supplied in the first two months.

I wish that Xiaomi kind of manufacturers bring down proudy and greedy OEM's (Shameshung, ipple, Sony, hTC) and show them what is real value for money?
