Xiaomi just introduced the Mi 4 at a launch event in Beijing, and it’s a looker. The Xiaomi Mi 4 features a stainless steel frame, made with “unbelievable craftsmanship & polish” in the words of Xiaomi’s head of international expansion, Hugo Barra.
Just ahead of its official unveiling, the Xiaomi Mi-4 has been caught on camera, showing off a metallic looking back cover.
Some say that knowing the cause of a problem is half of the battle. Looking at its letter to investors, it’s hard not to think that the tech giant has missed a major cause of its troubles.
Xiaomi will offer its flagship product, the Mi 3 smartphone, from July 22, with online retailer Flipkart as the exclusive channel. The Xiaomi Mi 3 will cost INR 13,999 (around $230), not INR 14,999, as was initially announced.
Xiaomi previously announced that it would start taking pre-orders for the Mi 3 in India on Tuesday, July, 15. Now local online retailer Flipkart just announced that it will be selling the Mi 3 exclusively in the country.
Xiaomi has given us a little tease ahead of their July 22nd product launch event, could it be a brushed metal Xiaomi Mi-4? We think so, but we’ll have to wait to find out.
The Xiaomi Mi3 is to be officially launched in India for ₹14,999. Pre-registration starts on July 15.
Xiaomi likes releasing phones in limited batches – guess how long it took to sell 10,000 Redmi Notes in Taiwan? Taking over the globe, Xiaomi is headed for India next, expected to sell devices through Flipkart soon.
