The Xioami Mi 4i is indeed an impressive smartphone and so we’re not at all surprised that over 3 lakh potential customers have registered to purchase the smartphone when it goes on sale for the first time one April 30. Of course, not that many units will be made available and the company is most likely to start small.
Well, there’s no official word about the inventory, but that information should turn up before the phone goes on sale. The Xiaomi Mi 4i is, as the name suggests, a variant of the original smartphone. The Xiaomi Mi 4i has been stripped down to deliver a more affordable package, but various features have been retained.
The display used here is the same 5-inch 1080p panel found on the original and it’s surrounded by slim bezels. Also, there’s a large battery of 3120mAh capacity and a 13MP main camera. Instead of an 8MP selfie shooter on the front, a 5MP sensor has been implemented. Also, the premium metal body has been replaced by a polycarbonate shell which comes in multiple colors.
The Xiaomi Mi 4i is powered by an octa core Snapdragon 615 processor with Adreno 405 graphics. And while there’s 16GB on internal storage, no microSD card slot has been made available. The Mi 4i does have dual SIM support with 4G LTE and it also runs Android 5.0 Lollipop out of the box.
