Black version of the Xiaomi Mi4 on sale today, but for China Mobile only


xiaomi mi4 black

Xiaomi launch the black version of their flagship phone in China today, but international fans must wait even longer.

Even if you wanted to import one of the new black Xiaomi Mi4 phones which went on sale today from China, you wouldn’t be in for much look. In an annoying turn of events Xiaomi have only released the China Mobile version of the Mi4 and only available to fans with special ‘F’ codes.

China Mobile uses its own TD data network. TD-SCDMA for 3G and TD-LTE for 4G which is only used in mainland China and partially in HongKong. International Xiaomi fans need phones that work on the more widely used WCDMA and FDD-LTE networks.

The black Xiaomi Mi4 comes in the same specs and memory configurations as previous models and at the same 1999 Yuan starting price.

    I like the look of the black phone but the white bezels will look so much better with the custom covers, if they ever release them.

    Honestly, I don’t know why it takes so long for them to release a black version. How long ago was the Mi4 released? I believe 5-6 months already. Is it that difficult to produce a black version?

      No it is not hard to produce what is simply xiaomi is inccapable, and accordingly, they’ll miss lots and lots of sales. you waste your time with this company. Meizu or other companies quickly sotent phones with different colors and lots of accessories, but prefers xiaomi play smarter with a strategy that will scare away customers

        They have gone from startup to the one of the top 5 best selling phones in the world in about 4 years. You may not agree with the way they do business but it has proven successful.
