Xiaomi Mi 4 coming to India January 28th

xiaomi mi4 review

Xiaomi’s been speaking about launching the Mi 4 in India since a few months, but not a lot has materialized on that front. However, Jai Mani, ex-Google Associate and now a Xiaomi recruit, recently mentioned that the phone would launch in India ‘in the coming weeks’. Turns out, he was right, and the Mi 4 is due for a launch 28th January which is just over 10 days from now.

Although there’s no real (read: official) announcement for the date as yet, but things sort of fall in place when one executive says the device will launch ‘in the end of January’, and the other asks you to ‘block the date for January 28th’. Xiaomi’s currently in the news for the latest launches that took place on the 15th in China, which include the super-powerful Mi Note Pro besides other devices, including audiophile-grade headphones and a tiny little TV box.

The Mi 4 is expected to sell for anything between 18,000-22,000 INR (US$292-350) in India. The phone comes with a 5-inch 1920 x 1080p display, a quad-core 2.5GHz Snapdragon 801 SoC, has 3GB of RAM, a 13 mega-pixel main camera, an 8 mega-pixel front camera, a 3080mAh battery and 16GB/64GB storage variants, neither of which offer expandable storage. The Mi 4 has been my daily driver for a good few months now, and I’m hoping to see the device give the tough fight to the OnePlus One in the Indian market.

What according to you would be a good price for the Mi 4 to match up to the OnePlus One?

    Mi4 is not going to have a cakewalk in Indian market anymore. It lacks 3 very vital attributes considered essential by most buyers..1. Dual Sim 2. Memory Expansion slot 3. Removable Battery.. and with these handicaps and increased competition.. sailing is unlikely to be very smooth for Mi4.

      Actually.. I think most of the average users dont care about one of these.. Dual sim is maybe the most desired. But remivable battery. Most of the users are not some heavy power users. And there are powerbanks as well.. More convenient then replacing the battery sometimes. SD card.. Again if there is 64gb option.. Most of the users will never even have a chance to fill it. Tech forums are unfortunately not the source of major demands of population. So many people desire compact phone here But Sony mobile division is close to bancrupcy even the offer probably the best compact phone on the market. The same for removable battery and sd.
