Leaked first hands on photos of the Xiaomi Mi4!

xiaomi mi4 hands on leaks

Someone in China has managed to get their hands on the Xiaomi Mi4 ahead of the official launch! Here are the first hands on photos of the all new Xiaomi flagship!

Just as Xiaomi had said in teasers, the Xiaomi Mi4 doesn’t have a stainless steel back plate, but it does use 304 stainless steel around the sides in the same fashion as the iPhone 5s. It appears that the rear is made of plastic and share the same sqaure camera and LED layout as other current Xiaomi phones. It is not confirmed from the image, but we believe ther rear is non removable and that the battery cannot be replaced (easily) by customers.

We can see what is likely a SIM tray at the top right hand corner of the Mi4, and from this angle the spy photos look very much like the leaked press image from yesterday which showed a white and black version of the Mi4.

Other notable details are teh slim screen bezels and interestingly the iOS Android skin, which we hope isn’t what MIUI V6 is going to look like.

Xiaomi will officially announce the Xiaomi Mi4 later today. Keep posted for full details.

      While I completely fail to see how it resembles an iPhone, I am dissapointed by design of the white one. Glossy finishes were and still are horrible. Hopefully the final product is less glossy.

    A litlle dissapointed by the design, not because it looks like iphone (even a box of matches looks like iphone) but from the rounded and glossy back.I was waiting for a flat back with quality plastic like the MI3.
    Lets wait for the final specifications, the look and the feel of miui V6 if it is announced today, to have the whole picture.

    Or else xiaomi you will lose a loyal customer , for oneplus one which now ships in greece for 260-275 euros…
    I hope the overall result will be what we were waiting for, and the black version of the phone will be much more beautiful.

    this looks crap. The only chinese phone that looks “legitime” is OPPO, VIVO.

    The VIVO Os is so so pretty simple and beautiful
    The Specs are damn impressive, but they are no following something “ORIGINAL”

    if the layout of the phone looks like that all the time meaning the flat style icons and way it looks ill buy it. otherwise im still rolling with oppo find 7.
