Xiaomi wants to target Indian consumers, specifically with its newly launched Xiaomi Mi 4i. After teasing specially the Apple device with its special qualities and features, specifically the ‘i’ notation, Mi 4i is now unveiled.
Quick Specs – The device is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 chipset, runs on Android 5.0 Lollipop based MIUI 6, and has 5inch full HD display, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage, 13MP & 5MP camera units, and 3120mAh battery.
These are just the highlights, but details of this phone are really impressive. Let me walk you through one by one.
First, the processor used in this device is not the older one, rather the second generation Snapdragon 615 chipset, which uses octa-core architecture, having four 1.7GHz processors and other four 1.1GHz processors.
The system architecture is 64-bit. In short, the processor is latest, fast, and power efficient. With its improved performance, the graphics performance and score cards are also increased to deliver better gaming and high standard visual experiences.
2GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage are in there to meet the storage requirement of CPU, software, and users.
The MIUI (Xiaomi’s skin for its smartphones and tablets) is now in its 6.0 version with which the new device will ship and interesting factor here is that it is now based on Android Lollipop 5.0. So, now the device will have a better take on materialistic design feature of the new Android out there.
Just like every previous device, this MIUI 6.0 skin is doing well to keep the phone look different from any other Android one. And, no doubt, Xiaomi will also sell its themes, apps, and other features from inbuilt store.
The 5inch screen at the front is fully laminated, Sharp/JDI display that offers full HD resolution of 1080×1920 pixels. The display also uses of One Glass Solution technology, which makes it possible for the device to have a slim profile.
Xiaomi has also given a fancy term to this screen used in new device i.e. ‘Sunlight Display’. Oh, common! Don’t start comparing it with Retina display now!
This new display works better under direct sunlight, as a special software is inside which accordingly increases or decreases the brightness, color saturation, and other related details to deliver better viewing experience.
Taking on Apple’s formula of launching its iPhones, Mi 4i is 12% thinner and 13% lighter than previous generation Mi 4. Coming at the build, polycarbonate is the material used (a better version of the plastic if you don’t get that technical term) around, wrapping the display and other elements together.
Coming at the camera, the Chinese brand took the decision of going with Sony/Samsung sensors. The rear holds 13MP and front hold 5MP camera units. The rear one has f/2.0 aperture with dual-tone flash while the front one has f/1.8 aperture lens.
The camera software has been improved and said to operate faster. There are also few tweaks done in the HDR, thus improving the picture qualities than last generation camera used in Mi 4. LTE, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.1, and GPS are the connectivity standards included.
To manage all these actions and fresh technologies to stay alive, at least for a single day, a 3,120mAh battery is placed within.
Coming at measurement, the device is just 7.8mm thick and weighs just 130 grams. The phone will be available in Pink, White, Grey, Blue, and Yellow color options.
