Chinese smartphone company Xiaomi is all set to bring its Mi 4i smartphone for its customers through an open sale on Flipkart.The smartphone which recently gained popularity for its good specs and cheaper price will now be available for purchase without any registrations on May 25 and May 26.
Till now, the smartphone was being sold through the company’s much successful flash sales models.But I digress – it looks like this particular handset has issues with overheating as well, as it runs on the 64-bit Snapdragon 615 SoC that boasts of an octa-core 1.7GHz CPU and is mated to the Adreno 405 GPU.
Xiaomi decided to pull one back for the team by rolling out a rather hefty 804MB update, which will be known as V18.104.22.168 LXIMICD.However, there has been no information about the number of units being available for the open sale.Surprisingly, the open sale by Xiaomi clashes with the open sale of Lenovo A6000 Plus on the same dates which clearly shows that the customers and the two companies might have a tough time around.
To recall, the Xiaomi Mi 4i features a unibody polycarbonate build, and has a soft touch matte finish with an anti-grease coating.Both SIM card slots support 4G LTE connectivity, and the phone is compatible with LTE bands in India.
It sports a 5-inch full-HD (1080×1920 pixels) fully laminated OGS Corning Concore IPS display.The Mi 4i’s display has a pixel density of 441ppi, and a Sunlight Display feature that optimises the display for visibility under bright light.The smartphone runs MIUI 6 based on Android 5.0 Lollipop, and supports 6 Indian languages – Hindi, Bengali, Kannada, Telugu, Malayalam, and Tamil.
