Xiaomi unveiled its latest Mi 4i smartphone back in April and has been gradually pushing products out to the Indian market with its flash sales tactic. Now, Xiaomi is opening up the handset to general sale across multiple retailers in India.
Previously, Mi 4i flash sales had taken place through the popular e-commerce retailer FlipKart. Flash sales help Xiaomi keep on top of stock levels and production, as well as generating some hype and a feeling of exclusivity around the handset. The smartphone is now available for purchase any time through Amazon India, Snapdeal, The Mobile Store, Airtel, Xiaomi’s own Mi.com, and Flipkart, of course.
As a little recap, the Xiaomi Mi 4i is a mid-range version of the company’s latest flagship smartphone, with a slightly lower price tag to compete in the Indian market. The handset comes with a 5-inch 1080p display, octa-core Snapdragon 615 SoC, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage, a 13 megapixel rear camera and a 5 megapixel front camera. The Mi4i also sports dual-SIM support, LTE data connectivity, a 3,120mAh battery and Xiaomi’s MIUI 6, which is based on Android 5.0 Lollipop.
The Xiaomi Mi 4i is priced at Rs. 12,999 (approximately $200) across the various retailers and is available in your choice of either dark grey or white colors.
