Xiaomi Mi4i price, release date, specs and features

The Xiaomi Mi4i is a mid-range variant of Xiaomi's powerful, popular, and surprisingly affordable Xiaomi Mi4. We've now received word that the Mi4i has been released in India. Read on to find out all the latest on Xiaomi Mi4i price, release date, specs, features and more.

Xiaomi Mi4i release date

The Chinese Xiaomi Mi4i release date was back in April 2015, and it launched in India in early July. There's no word yet on whether the Xiaomi Mi4i will be coming to the US or UK, but we've contacted Xiaomi to get more details on this. We'll update you as soon as we know more.

Xiaomi Mi4i price

As you'd expect from Xiaomi, the Xiaomi Mi4i price really deceives its features. While we don't know what price for western markets would be, the phone launched for Rs. 12,999 on the Indian Amazon site, which converts to around 200 USD or 130 GBP.

Based on the specs, we think this is one of the best value-for-money smartphones you can buy. Of course, we'll need to write up our Xiaomi Mi4i review before telling you whether the impressive specs are as impressive when put to the test.

Xiaomi Mi4i specs

The Xiaomi Mi4i specs inevitably aren't as powerful as those of the Mi4, or as jaw-dropping as the rumored specs of the Xiaomi Mi5 and Mi5 Plus, but they still offer great value for the price. The Xiaomi Mi4i features an octa-core Snapdragon 615 chipset clocked at 1.1 GHz, with 2 GB RAM.

Rounding off the Mi4i features are dual-SIM support, a 3,120 mAh battery, and 16 GB of internal storage space.

    I've been used this phone for 4 months. everything's works fine. camera result was adorable,although its not recommended for taking snapshot on low light condition. there will be a lot noise then. for people who wants to buy a mid level specs with low budget, I would like to recommend this phone.

    The phone was released even earlier in India. It was available on flipkart thru flash sales doe. I got mine like months back. Display puts iPhone to shame and has a technology that adjust brightness for each pixel based on light falling on it. Its called sunlight display. The phone has no lags whatsoever and multitasking and gaming is a breeze. Miui is beautiful but somewhat of a ram hog. I get 1 GB free ram after reboot. Camera is on par with lumia 930 and certainly better than one m9 (jk). I'd say best device in this price segment. And yea its thin and the camera is flush with the back.
