After a long delay, Xiaomi is reportedly going to launch the Mi 4 in India on January 28. The company has not revealed the pricing yet, but according to the reports, it might be priced around Rs 20,000 approximately. Interestingly, It has only been few days since Xiaomi launched its flagship smartphones Mi Note and Mi Note Pro at an event held in Beijing.

In a conversation with Indian Express, Xiaomi’s India head, Manu Jain hinted that the device will be priced around Rs 20,000. He also said, “Given the fact that Xiaomi likes to surprise its fans, we can expect the price to be less than that.”

The presently indexed price of the Mi 4 4G model on Xiaomi World is $379.99, which sums up to Rs 23,500 approximately. Xiaomi’s international VP, Hugo Barra, had mentioned earlier that the company will launch the 4G variant of the Mi 4 in India. The 4G variant of Mi 4 was launched in China markets in October last year.

In terms of specifications, the device comes with a 5-inch full HD 1080p display, and is powered by a 2.5GHz Snapdragon 801 quad-core processor coupled with 3GB of RAM. It has 16GB of internal storage.

The Mi 4 sports a 13-megapixel rear camera and an 8-megapixel front-facing camera. It is backed by a 3,080mAh battery, which is touted by the company to charge up to 60 percent in an hour.

The Mi 4 is expected to be launched on Flipkart, just as most of Xiaomi’s smartphones are launched in India.

They better launch 64GB version here, adding an extra thousand or two is NOT going to be an issue for it, imho…

@raj-3G is far more superior than 2G in fast Data service and providing a congestion free network. But comes to battery drain,3G uses less battery power on voice calls,data transfer and even at standby conditions on optimum signal strength. But in practical situation an optimum signal strength is very difficult to obtain i.e. Strong 3G signal without fluctuations is impossible. So any minute fluctuation in 3G signal result the phone to consume more power that ultimately leads to battery drain at a level faster than that of 2G(drain rate is double in 3G if there is signal fluctuation,than 2G).
