After the ravishing success of Mi3, everyone in the Indian Mobile marketplace are eagerly waiting for Mi4. Today, Xiaomi launched Mi4 smartphone in India, the most speculated smartphone after the likes of Mi3. Check the official website here.
The smartphone will start selling from the Flipkart. So, what advantages it brings over the age-old Mi3?
The Hardware ofcourse! The Mi4 offers a powerful SnapDragon 801 Quad-Core process that clocks at 2.5 GHz. The Processor is supplied by sufficient RAM of 3 GB. For Gamers, the Mi4 SmartPhone comes packed with Adreno 330 GPU.
Mi4 is the right competitor for One Plus One and Samsung Galaxy S5.
The late entry of Mi4 in India Market can be speculated as a marketing strategy to sell Mi3 and capture the medium market segment. Once the mid-high range is captured, they can lure the users that are willing to shell out more money on the shelf.
The User Interface remains the same and carries the same authenticity and design. The MIUI 6 is the latest version of the Xiaomi’s fork to the Android platform.
Camera-wise the Mi4 is another strong contender compromising of 13 MP rear camera coupled with 8 MP front camera. The rear camera is capable of capturing 4K video and real-time HDR photos.
Just like the Mi3, the Mi4 also offers an amazing 5-inch Full HD Screen that is protected by the Corning Gorilla Glass.
The only drawback from the likes of the Xiaomi is the internal storage that only racks up to 16GB. It also fails to capitalize the newest 4G technology. Lack of 4G LTE technology can make the smartphone fail in most place, but India looks like a safe bet for now.
Other competitors are providing 4G features for low-priced mobiles such as Lenovo A600, priced at only 7000 INR.
The resultant approach that Mi4 is taking the market is wholly dependent on the success of hardware specs and the amazing MIUI interface. Apps like Visual caller ID or the IVR system can also bring more value to the device.
To grab the phone, you need to register at Flipkart by 6PM IST today(sadly gone) or wait for the next grab!
