The Xiaomi Mi 4, the company's newest flagship smartphone, just got unveiled. The device totes a killer combination between top-of-the-line hardware specs and really adequate suggested retail price, which will surely attract flocks of potential buyers. We are talking about a quad-core Snapdragon 801, humming at 2.5GHz, 3GB of RAM, a hefty 3080mAh juicer behind the swappable back covers, a 5-inch IPS LCD display with a resolution of 1080 x 1920 pixels, plus 13MP rear and 8MP front-facing cameras. The Mi 4 comes with either 16 or 64GB of native storage on board. Can you guess how much it will retail for? $320 and $400 (in China, that is), respectively. Sounds quite appealing, right?
