Xiaomi teases upcoming 32GB variant of the Mi 4i


It's hard to believe that Xiaomi has been doing business in India for only one year. On July 22nd, the company is celebrating its first anniversary in the country by making a number of product announcements. One such announcement could be the unveiling of a 32GB variant of the Xiaomi Mi 4i. A teaser produced by the company shows a matchstick puzzle that reveals Xiaomi's intention to double the storage capacity of the phone.

Xiaomi VP Hugo Barra had previously stated that the manufacturer would be hiking the amount of storage available on the Mi 4i. Without a microSD slot, the current model gives users only 13GB of memory. Barra noted that Xiaomi couldn't add more memory to the original model without making it bigger, or using a smaller capacity battery. And the executive feels that microSD slots can lower the performance of a phone.

The Xiaomi Mi 4i features a 5-inch screen with a 1080 x 1920 resolution. That works out to a pixel density of 441ppi. The 64-bit Snapdragon 615 is under the hood, carrying an octa-core 1.7GHz CPU and the Adreno 405 GPU. 2GB of RAM is inside along with the 3120mAh battery that keeps the power on. Back and front-facing cameras weigh in at 13MP and 5MP, respectively. The phone supports 4G LTE connectivity and Android 5.0 is pre-installed with MIUI 6 running on top.

For those who decided to wait for a 32GB version of the Xiaomi Mi 4i before making the purchase, it looks like you are about to be rewarded.

Let's hope that that they won't price it like Apple did, with every iPhone storage upgrade.

"And the executive feels that microSD slots can lower the performance of a phone." No Barra, that's just what you feel. 16gb without micro sd slot is very small for current technology standards.
