Xiaomi unveils the Mi 4s: SD808, 3GB of RAM, 64 gig of storage on board

Apart from the Mi 5, Xiaomi had another product announcement for us today. It also announced the 4s, an improved version of the Mi 4, which debuted got introduced at a simultaneous event held in Beijing, China. That's a dead giveaway about the market at which the handset will be targeted - unsurprisingly, the Mi 4s will be launched in China at first. There, the device will cost 1699 yuan, which is roughly $260.

So, what will the adopters of the phone get for their hard-earned cash? A 5" device with metal frame, a fingerprint reader positioned at the back of the handset, and some impressive hardware for the price. First of all, we have a 1080p display up front, which comes with a pixel density of 441ppi - that's very good for a 5-inch handset. A Snapdragon 808 powers the whole shebang, and the 3GB of RAM on board take care of the multitasking. There's 64 gigs of storage, and if that already gracious amount does not float your boat, a microSD card slot is also present. 

The camera is a 13MP one with phase detection autofocus and a dual-tone LED flash, while a 5MP one will take selfies. USB Type-C and an infrared sensor can be found on the Mi 4s, as well as a 3,260mAh battery complete the specs sheet. Software-wise, we have Android 6.0 Marshmallow and Xiaomi's MIUI 7 on board.

Now, if only we could get this one in the West...

You can get these in the USA and Europe and other Western countries easily. You just need to order them to be shipped overseas. What is up with people and their aversion to buying things from other countries other than their own? Just because your carrier doesn't carry your phone doesn't mean you need to cry about it!

but aren't bands a problem when it comes to carrier support on your phone? As far as I know, imported phones usually don't support bands provided by carriers. What's the use of a phone if you can't use it's phone capabilities?

in response to #7,#11 No standard warranty on those import devices, if there is an international warranty you must ship it back or better buy an insurance offered by the seller (Comparable to the manufacturer's warranty which is free)

Pricing is stupid, Mi5 32gb will go for 300$, who in their right mind would buy mi4 for 40$ less... but I like the mi4 design more

Is it just me or does it actually resembles Lumia 550 & 650??? O_O BTW, PhoneArna, have you ever heard of "The grapes are sour"...??? So, stop teasing Yankee public until Xiaomi officially launches in The U.S of A, savvy? G'Day!

Greenman, Stop clicking on articles that clearly state you can not get this device. Since you are aware Xiaomi hasn't officially launched in the United States, you should know better. Have a good day.
