Xiaomi Mi4i will go on sale in Singapore and Hong Kong next week


xiaomi mi4i

When the Xiaomi Mi4i launched, Xiaomi promised that they would release the phone for sale in a couple of countries including Singapore and Hong Kong. Now, Xiaomi has announced that the phone will go on sale in both markets on the 12th of May, which is next week. Singapore and Hong Kong are the first countries to receive the phone after India.

Announced on the 23rd of April in the Indian capital New Delhi, the Mi4i is a mid-range smartphone and comes with specifications such as a 5-inch full HD display protected by Corning’s Concore Glass, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage and octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 processor. It runs on an Android 5.0-based MIUI v6, has a 13MP rear camera with dual-LED flash, a 5MP front shooter, a decently sized 3120 mAh battery and 4G LTE support. It also has dual sim capabilities and a feature called Sunlight Display which should help screen legibility in direct sunlight.

xiaomi mi4i specifications

 

 

The Xiaomi Mi4i will retail at HK$1,599 ($206) in Hong Kong and S$279 ($209) in Singapore. The phone will be released in the white colour option. There’s no news about the availability of other colours like blue, yellow and pink (and in typical Xiaomi fashion, no black). Registrations for the first sale of Mi 4i are now open in both Hong Kong and Singapore.

It’s great to see Xiaomi finally taking the international market seriously instead of taking their sweet time releasing new models into other markets. Pricing is also close to the pricing in India, which is great. What do you think?

    I thought I would have never bought a phone with a SD615 but this one seems interesting,I think it’s priced OK (not a bargain nor overpriced) due to a good camera, big battery and good build quality.
    Even if mediatek counterpart might be slightly better, it’s going to be up to personal taste. I’m confident this one will sell well.

    I wish they would come to Thailand soon. There is hope as Oppo, Vivo, Lenovo and Huawei have all been making a bigger presence here.

      Is the WiFi on the Gionee E7 any good? I need good WiFi reception both home and at work. Hopefully I will order it next week.

          Off-topic.. guys I’d appreciate your advice and thoughts on helping me decide on a phone for my girlfriend. Which one do you think is the best choice out of these three (or should I maybe go totally with another one)?

          -Xiaomi Mi3
          -Xiaomi Redmi 2 (2GB RAM version)
          -Umi Hammer

          All she needs the phone for besides calling and texting is mostly facebook and taking pics so I’d really like the phone to be good at those tasks and not lag. A whole day battery life would be great too.

            Of those I would go with Redmi 2 or Mi3, both have very good camera’s.

        I already own the Mi4 but this is promising news. I am not an AIS Customer, I use True but if they release the rest of the Xiaomi lineup it will be easy enough to get them unlocked.
