New Delhi – Xiaomi reduced the prices of its Mi4 series smartphones by a margin of Rs 2,000. The 64GB variant will be available for Rs. 21,999 and the 16 GB for Rs 17,999.
The Xiaomi smartphones have proved to be a tough competitor for tech giants such as Apple and Samsung, and are slowly establishing their dominance in the Indian smartphone market. Xiaomi took the strategy of providing smartphones with high end specifications within a very reasonable price.
If a Samsung smartphone with a specific configuration comes for Rs 32000, Xiaomi provides it in less than 25,000.
However, the Indian Air Force has strongly urged/banned its personnel from using the company’s smartphone, claiming that Xiaomi “steals” private data and store it in their cloud servers. Such allegations were however, rejected by the Chinese smartphone maker. That being said, Xiaomi has broken all records of sale in India, with thousands of its mobile being sold out within just seconds.
The Mi4 version of Xiaomi comes with a 5 inch screen with an HD IPS display, having a resolution of 1920×1080 pixels with 441 ppi (pixels per inch). The smartphone scores high on all aspects. It sports a Corning OGS Glass, which will allow its users to operate the phone even with wet hands.
It has a powerhouse processor, clocking at 2.5GHz in a Quad Core Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 Processor. It also has a 3GB RAM, which makes the smartphone as the most powerful mobile in this price range.
When it comes to software, the mobile comes with Android KitKat 4.4.4 operating sysyem, which is customized by Xiaomi to give a pleasant User Interface with MIUI6. It comes along with a 13MP primary camera and an 8MP front camera.
The rear camera is capable to take 4K resolution videos and has parts such as Sony IMX214 CMOS rear 6P lens with an f1.8 aperture, making it capable to take astounding photographs. The phone comes with a 3080 mAh battery.
