Xiaomi has a history of offering its flagship phones at extremely low prices and the Mi4 is no exception. It’s the first phone from the Chinese company to include metal in its design and it boasts the same top-notch hardware you’ll find inside most other flagship Android phones on the market today. Xiaomi also says the device will get support for international FD LTE standards by the end of 2014, suggesting it may not launch outside of the country until later this year. The design definitely takes some inspiration from Apple, with its metal frame and chamfered edges, though the camera on the back reminds us more of Samsung’s Galaxy S5. The Mi4 offers LTE radios, though it only supports the bands supported by China’s carriers.
Under the hood, the Mi4 packs a Snapdragon 801 processor clocked at 2.5GHz, a non-removable 3080mAh battery, a 13-megapixel rear camera, an 8-megapixel front-facing shooter, 3GB of RAM and 16GB to 64GB of internal storage no microSD card slot and a 5-inch 1080p display.Xiaomi’s next phone is finally here! The highly anticipated Mi4 was announced earlier today in China. The device starts atCNY 1,999 roughly 322 for the 16GB version, while the 64GB variant is priced atCNY2,499 about 400.
Xiaomi’s new flagship phone will be available in China starting on July 29 with 3G support; the LTE model won’t hit the market until September.. Stay tune for the next updates!
