CNET First Look
Xiaomi's Mi 4i signals its global ambitionsXiaomi launches its first smartphone outside of China with the Mi 4i, a trim Android model with healthy features and a low, low price.
Hi, everyone. This is Aloysius from CNet, and I'm here in New Delhi with Xiaomi's Mi 4i. Now, this $210 phone features mid-range specs such as Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 octa-core processor, 2 GB of RAM and 16 GB of onboard storage. As you can see here, it's running Android 5.0. Ta da. There we go. And, on top of that, it's Yaomi's phone, Mi UI version six. Which, should be familiar to some of you guys. Now, Yaomi says that this is a flagship phone, and it's parking it under its Mi branding, and not its budget rate Mi branding. You can see that build is polycarbonate, has a nice soft touch, and feels good in the hand. On the sides are stainless steel buttons. And over here is where you find a dual sim 4G slot. There's no microSD. The phone has a 13 megapixel camera. A two tone flash. And on the front a five megapixel shooter with modes for taking better selfies. And the MI 4I will launch in India on April 30th, and will hit other countries, such as Hong Kong, Taiwan, Singapore, and Malaysia, and Indonesia in May. I'm Aloysius for CNET, thanks for watching.
