Xiaomi Unveils its Latest Flagship Mi4 Smartphone


Xiaomi, a renowned Chinese electronics company, has announced its latest flagship device Mi 4 during an event in Beijing.

The latest phone is said to be the fastest and the most striking device in the Mi phone series. It packs the top notch hardware and now the build quality has been improved by the addition of metal.

Have a look at some of key features of this device:

  • 5-inch 1080p IPS display
  • Stainless steel frame and Swappable back plates (plastic, wood, bamboo, marble, fabric, leather)
  • Snapdragon 801 chipset (quad-core 2.5 GHz CPU, Adreno 330 GPU)
  • 3GB RAM and 16/64GB internal memory (No memory card slot)
  • 13MP rear camera, f1.8, real-time HDR, 4K video recording
  • Secondary 8MP front camera, f1.8, 80-degree wide angle
  • 3080mAh internal battery, quick charging at 9V/1.2A or 5V/2A
  • 4G LTE Support, Bluetooth 4.0,  FM radio
  • Android KitKat 4.4 with MIUI v6 on top

The 16GB version is priced at $320 and the price for 64GB version is approximately $400. This device is currently available only in China, its likely that prices in other markets will be the same.

Smartphone enthusiasts in Pakistan can expect this phone to be available in local markets around September 2014.


The company has also announced a water resistant Mi fitness Band. It offers fitness monitor & sleep tracking features and can unlock you Mi phone without a password. It is priced at $13 and will be available in different colors with stylish band options.


It merits mentioning here that Xiaomi is headed by Hugo Barra, a key former Google Android executive. The company is currently selling its products in China, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Singapore, Malaysia, and India.

Many devices including Mi 3, Redmi and Redmi Note are also available worldwide — including Pakistan — either through authorized stores or grey channel.

According to the statistics shared by company’s founder Lei Jun, Xiaomi has sold 57.36 million phones in its first three years of operation and 26.1 million of them were sold just in the first half of 2014.

The Mi 2 smartphone launched in 2012, happens to be the most successful product by the company, 17.4 million units have been sold to date.


Xiaomi products are not officially available in Pakistan, but you can find most of them in the market or buy from local online shops (sold at inflated prices).

The company has recently started its operations in India and got a very positive response. So its safe to assume the company will consider the Pakistani market very soon.

  • I would be the first person to buy this phone if they officially launch it in Pakistan just like they did in India.
    BTW, Local online stores are even pricing the Mi 2s and Mi3 too damn high.

  • Mi3 was priced at PKR 22,000 in India which is a bargin for a phone which is faster than even Samsung Note 3 in some benchmarks.

  • I’ve personally used Mi3 in Malaysia after all the HYPE & BUZZ they created. But to be honest it’s not just the hardware that matters, their software (MIUI) basically sucks and it’s not a deal breaker. You dont really enjoy the phone at all !

    • You got to be kidding me. MIUI is better than vanilla Android in many aspects. It’s used by millions of people who even don’t have Xiaomi.

      • I’m sorry not to hurt anyone sentiments but it’s more like QMobile’s android version in my personal opinion. Gives you the exact feeling and I never compared it to vanilla. I’m a S4 stock rom user and i’m a fan of it. Didn’t really like CM 10 or 11 UI too.

      • Well if something gets popular in china, reaching a billion also isn’t a deal breaker. With that said, everyone has personal preferences.

  • great cell phone.. could be a better option then any of other china mobiles, its a fair price for these specs..hope they launch it in Pak soon

  • no plans for Pakistan in near future “remove comma”

  • No they won’t be considering Pakistan market, assuming the BEST business culture provided here topped with the stable political situation.

    • Hugo Barra said they are try to reach the market that has establish online market and in Pakistan people complain a lot about the price of online shopping so this is out fault

  • can someone tell me why mobile companies like xiaomi have launched officially in India and after a year there is still no official launching of Xiaomi in Pkaistan markets??
