Xiaomi Mi 4S coming with 5-inch FHD display and USB Type-C port
Xiaomi received over 2.6 million registrations for the Mi 5 flagship within just hours of its unveiling at MWC 2016. The Chinese manufacturer's second unveiling, however, is the more mainstream and affordable Mi 4S.
The Mi 4S will launch in China this March 1st for around 1700 Yuan (~240 Euros) at the same date as its Mi 5 sibling. The LTE phone will be available in Gold, Purple, Black and White, though no additional regions have been announced for launch.
Core components of the Mi 4S include:
- 5-inch FHD display (95 percent NTSC coverage)
- Hexa-core Snapdragon 808 SoC
- Adreno 418 GPU
- 3 GB RAM
- 64 GB eMMC
- Up to 802.11ac WiFi, Bluetooth 4.1
- Fingerprint reader
- 13 MP f/2.0 PDAF rear + 5 MP wide-angle 85-degree f/20 front cameras
- Dual SIM, USB 3.0 (Type-C, Quick Charge 2.0)
- 7.8 mm thickness
- 133 grams
The specifications alone are very impressive considering the price range. Its 3 GB RAM and 64 GB of internal storage in particular were mostly found on flagship smartphones just last year and have already trickled down to the sub 300 Euro price range for 2016.
