The tweet that the company had made, mention that “I” is coming soon. This means that the company is ready to announce and to unveil their newest high end smartphone series. The company also invites people to join in their event in New Delhi, India. Again, this is an international event and maybe in there the company will explain and give people some review about their newest gadget and some of their ready-to-launch gadget.
The local Xiaomi site in India also announced that the CEO and founder Lei Jun, President and Co-founder Bin Lin and VP Xiaomi Global Hugo Barra will attend the event in New Delhi, India. It is hinted that their newest gadget will have “I” tag name in its name. Some sites say that the company will review about the Xiaomi Mi 4i in that event. A phone with the Mi 4i moniker was run through the GeekBench3 benchmark test which revealed that the phone was powered by a Qualcomm 64-bit octa-core processor with a clock speed of 1.65GHz. 2GB of RAM was on board. From the looks of things, the Xiaomi Mi 4i appears to be a lower-spec’d device than the Xiaomi Mi 4, which is powered by a Snapdragon 801 CPU and features 3GB of RAM inside. –http://www.phonearena.com/news/Xiaomi-to-unveil-new-global-smartphone-on-April-23rd-will-this-be-the-Xiaomi-Mi-4i_id68157
If the Xiaomi Mi 4 priced in the mid-range budget, the Xiaomi Mi 4i maybe a little more expensive, but we still don’t know about that. From the processor itself, Xiaomi Mi 4 is better than the i-series that rumored to be announced at 23rd April. Xiaomi Mi 4 has a 2,5 GHz quad core processor and the i-series has 1,65 GHz (still a rumor).
