Xiaomi to live stream its 'i IS COMING' event
Xiaomi is set to unveil another new product at a launch event which will take place in New Delhi, India on April 23rd. The event is named ‘i IS COMING’ and we are anticipating the launch of a new flagship Android smartphone for the global market – the Mi4i.
No matter where you are in the world you will be able to catch the event live, as Xiaomi will also be live-streaming the launch presentation through its Mi.com website. Taking the launch venue to India, rather than hosting the event in China, is also rather significant, suggesting that the company’s next product is either specifically designed for the Indian market, and/or that Xiaomi is preparing for a wider roll-out, as the company continues to expand from its home territory.
Xiaomi has also been steadily releasing a selection of teasers about its upcoming device via its Mi India Facebook account. Feel and build materials seems to be the running theme, but there’s also mention of a potential larger battery size and likely a more pixel dense display as well. It’s unlikely that Xiaomi will release its second QHD device just yet, instead we’re probably looking at a more compact display size with a 1080p resolution.
Other Mi4i hardware rumors include a mid-range Snapdragon 615 processing package, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of internal memory, dual-SIM support, a 13 megapixel camera, and a plastic body. Essentially, this is likely an even more budget friendly version of the flagship Xiaomi Mi4.
The live-stream will begin at 4pm IST (10:30am GMT / 6:30am EDT) on April 23rd and will be broadcast in English. Will you be tuning in?
