Xiaomi just announced the successor of the very successful Mi3, the Mi4. Just like its older brother, the new device brings a lot to the table as it’s slated to compete with the biggest international manufacturers in the world.
The Mi4 is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor instead of the rumored 805. But even then, it’s still a beast as the 801 is the CPU used on most high-end smartphones today like the Galaxy S5 and LG G3. It will also come with 3GB of RAM and either 16GB or 64GB storage. While the initial rumors point to a slightly bigger screen QHD resolution, Xiaomi has retained the 5-inch 1080p display which is more than good enough for most users.
