The Xiaomi Mi4 is a new, high-end smartphone that was introduced recently as the world’s fastest smartphone! The Mi4 looks like a smartphone that has a lot to offer, but let’s take a look at its main features first before making any decisions:
Display: 1080 x 1920 pixels; 5.0 inches (~441 ppi); FullHD LCD
OS: Android 4.4 KitKat (overlay: MIUI V6.5)
Dimensions: 139.2 x 68.5 x 8.9 mm; 149 grams
Processor: Qualcomm Snapdragon 801; 2.5 GHz
Storage: 16 or 64 GB (not expandable)
Network: 3G, LTE and TDD-FDD-LTE
Camera: 13MP; 8MP front sensor; 4K playback and recording
Battery: 3080mAh (280 hours on standby)
We can’t deny the fact that the Xiaomi Mi4 is an impressive device. In addition to its specs, Xiaomi also promised that Mi4’s battery will last you for a day and a half of normal usage and that it will come with a rapid charging feature, which will make it possible to charge your handset to 60% in just one hour.
Looking at the pictures, you’ll realize that the manufacturer has chosen a design very similar to that of an iPhone – minimalist, sleek and modern. The device is available in two colours – black and white, at the prices of €238/around £180 (16GB version), and €298/around £235 (64 GB).
The phone will be available only in the Asian Pacific region (China, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Singapore, Malaysia, the Philippines and India), but the company said that it is planning to challenge the ‘premium’ smartphone market in the future, currently dominated by Samsung and Apple.
Xiaomi also launched customizable covers for the Mi4, which you can see in the photo above.
