In the ever changing world of technology, Xiaomi has introduced a perfect device to fill the hole created by Mi3 departure. The device named Mi4i, is powered by great hardware inside and will be first launched in India.

It is powered by 2nd Gen Snapdragon 615 Octa Core CPU (4 x 1.7 Ghz + 4 x 1.1GHz) which Xiaomi claims is made in India.
In terms of optics either a Samsung or Omnivision 13-megapixels f/2 aperture rear camera paired with Dual Tone LED flash keeps the pictures stunning.

It has a Bluetooth 4.1, WiFi ac with MIMO support, GPS, Glonass, Beidou and WiFi Direct support. It also has 2GB RAM and 16GB internal storage but sadly the external card slot is missing and higher memory variant has not been announced yet.
It runs on MIUI 6 on top of Android Lollipop and has a massive 3120-mAh battery. Although the device is so powerpacked the design and build of device is compact and light due to soft polycarbonate unibody which is just 7.8-mm thin and weighs 130-grams.
