Mi4 with MIUI6 launched in India for Rs. 19,999

Xiaomi finally launched its new flagship device the Mi4 in India today along with MiUi6 and works on Android KitKat 4.4.4. 

The Mi 4 is a 5-inch device that is packed with powerful specs for its price range. It is powered by a 2.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 quad-core processor, 3GB of RAM and 16GB of internal memory and runs on a 3080 mAh battery.  The camera how ever is usual a 13 -megapixel rear camera that we have been seeing with their flagships. But the impressive part here is that it has a wide-angle (80°) front camera of 8 megapixels, both with an unprecedented f1.8 aperture. The bummer though is, that it does not come with 4G LTE support.

The Mi 4 will go on sale on February 10, and pre- registrations for the device will start at 6pm on January 28 exclusively through its e-commerce partner, Flipkart.

The guys at Xiaomi had been teasing its customers with something for a while in all their invites and that turned out to be the launch of MIUI 6, a major update to its Android ROM. MIUI 6 is MIUI redesigned in its simplest form, with beautiful colour and motion graphics throughout, and all unnecessary distractions stripped away so you can focus on your content. It is visually stunning, and amazingly simple. 

MIUI according to Xiaomi is one of the world’s most popular Android-based platforms with over 85 million users worldwide.

Hugo Barra, Vice President, Xiaomi Global, said: “I am truly excited to be bringing the Mi 4 to India, after listening to the feedback of so many fans. The Xiaomi team has put a lot of effort into designing a gorgeous device packed with powerful specs, and I trust that Mi 4 will be warmly welcomed by all our Indian fans. I believe India Mi fans will love MIUI 6, the most exciting update to our software platform to date.”

Manu Jain, Operations Head, Mi India, said: “The Mi 4 re-affirms our commitment to bring more Mi products to India. We will continue to work on offering our Mi fans incredible value as we introduce even more great devices in the coming year, and the best user experience ever.”
