Chinese handset maker Xiaomi is expected to launch its latest 4G device Mi4 in the country later this month as it looks to strengthen its position in the booming Indian smartphone market. The Xiaomi Mi4 will in all probability be available exclusively via Flipkart, just like the company’s other devices.
The company, which entered the Indian market last year, has launched three devices here so far — Redmi 1S, Redmi Note and Mi3 — in partnership with e-commerce major Flipkart.
Often called the Apple of China, Xiaomi launched the Mi4 in July last year. However, the device did not hit the Indian market.
Last week, Xiaomi had launched its flagship smartphones, the Mi Note and Mi Note Pro, at an event in Beijing.
The Xiaomi Mi4 has a 5-inch IPS display and is powered by a 2.5 GHz quad-core Snapdragon 801 processor and has 3GB RAM.
It comes with a 13MP rear camera with LED Flash, Sony IMX214 BSI sensor and 4K video recording. With a 8MP front camera, the smartphone comes with Android KitKat operating system with a layer of the MIUI OS skin.
