Purported Xiaomi Mi4 screenshot shows Android L, octacore and 4GB RAM!?


xiaomi mi4 specs leak

If something looks to good to be true then it generally is, so take the above alleged Xiaomi Mi4 screenshot with a spoonful of salt and wash it down with seawater.

22nd July is the date we will see the Xiaomi Mi4. Well that is what we think after Xiaomi released this teaser showing a simple ‘4’ on a brushed metal background. The ‘4’ obviously stands for Mi4 and likely also 4G LTE, but could it also stand for 4GB RAM?

This screenshot was sent in to us from an unknown source who says it comes from the next Xioami phone. As we can see this is the MIUI info screen which gives important details about the device. In this case the information states the phone is the Xiaomi Mi4, the Android version is Android L, the processor is an octacore 2.6Ghz unit and there is 4GB RAM on board.

Now we know that Xiaomi have a history of making amazing phones for the prices they sell them for, but the specs listed here just seem a little unlikely.

What are your opinions on this leak? Do you think the purported Xiaomi Mi4 hardware is too good to be true, or do you think this is legit?

      Probably a S810 (4XA53 + 4XA57)
      not likely, but if the specs are true, it has to be…

      or maybe a S810 and a Tegra K1 version…
      All speculation…

        Well S810 might be difficult for a launch this year!
        If the MiPad uses the K1, they now might use it also on a Smartphone!

    Surely Android L is only in Developer Preview Stage for now. However if the final version does come to Xiaomi MI4 & there other handsets by the end of 2014, then it would be excellent.

    If it is to come with an Ubuntu version then the specs are good, plus 128GB ROM and micro SD.

      there’s no way they put ubuntu on a Xiaomi phone. that is like put ios on a galaxy S5

        lol all you need is some excellent developer and sources for it to be ported I bet he’s pointing out the Ubuntu Touch, when they could even port it on Nexus 4/5 so it’s not impossible to port it on Mi Phones 😉

    4GB can only mean they use 64 bit processor if this screenshot is true.

      32bit ARM can access 4GB

    It’s either running the new MTK6795 with a T at the end, or it’s a pile of fake.

    Android L?! Most of MIUI releases still are in JellyBean 4.1… Yes Xiaomi makes excelent hardwares and I’m satisfied with my Mi-2 but software are far from be good.

      Well, the MI3 got upgraded to 4.4 a while ago…

        Yes but ONLY Mi-3, all Xiaomi’s phones are 4.1 or 4.3
