Ahead of the much awaited Xiaomi Mi5, the Chinese smartphone brand has unveiled a completely unexpected smartphone, the Xiaomi Mi4S. No one could’ve anticipated that Xiaomi would launch a device other than the Mi5 and Mi5 Plus. Nonetheless, let’s have a look at the device itself.

Xiaomi Mi4S

The Xiaomi Mi4S brings the same metal-and-glass build as seen in the Mi4, but there are some changes in the design. Some of the new and important features include a fingerprint sensor that’s placed on the back of the device and a USB Type-C port. It also brings dual-SIM connectivity and a newer version of Android.

Xiaomi Mi4S Specifications

  • 5.0-inch IPS LCD display with a resolution of 1,920 x 1,080 pixels (441 ppi)

Xiaomi Mi4S

The Mi4S runs MIUI 7 on top of Android 6.0 Marshmallow, and there’s Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 doing all the processing and graphical grunt with the help from 3GB LP-DDR3 RAM and 64GB internal storage space. There’s a microSD card slot, dual-band Wi-Fi ac/b/g/n, and a 3,260 mAh battery.

The Xiaomi Mi4S will be available in four colours; Black, Gold, Pink, and White, from March 1 in China. The device carries a price tag of 1,699 Yuan, which translates to around Rs. 17,500. We expect the device to retail anywhere between Rs. 18,000 to Rs. 20,000 if it launches in India.
