Xiaomi Mi 4i price and release date: shockingly low price, registrations start April 30th

The Xiaomi Mi 4i price has just been unveiled and it is an absolute shocker: the 5-inch phone with a 1080 x 1920-pixel display and Snapdragon 615 system chip will be sold for just 12,999 Indian rupees. Okay, so how much is this in a more recognizable currency equivalent? That translates to just around $200 off-contract.

Xiaomi officially counts the Mi 4i as a 'flagship' device (a term that's very watered down at the moment), and in its comparison with similar class devices, the company manages to have half the price. That's truly an impressive achievement, but obviously a needed one given the heated competition from other Asian brands.

The phone will be available in a variety of Asian markets (India first) with registrations kicking off on Flipkart (the Indian equivalent of Amazon) on April 30th.

the display & battery(3170 mah) is very impessive , even flagships won't have 95% NTSC and killer sunlight conrast ratio , thats impressive stuff. especially at the price.

M1 Note is comparable to Mi4i spec by spec except it's size. Also it's cheaper. Xiaomi had problems with it's Mediatek handsets in India. Mediatek aren't China only. Anyway that doesn't change the fact comparing to M1 Note, it's seems overpriced.

exactly using mediatek is dangerous for Indian market.

Flipkart aint the Amazon equivalent for India because Amazon India is already in existence I think Xaomi is gonna face a direct competition from Asus Zenfone 2 Ze550ML which was also launched today and carries same price tag (Asus doesnt imply flash sales and pre orders have already begun so i think it will sell better than mi4i I personally think they should have used sd800 for better competition as their mi3 priced 220$ had this soc

For me, it's OK if phone's price is high, but food's price low. But nowdays, it's the contrary. Odd ... >.
