Xiaomi released its flagship device, the Mi 4i, in India a couple of weeks ago. Now, the Chinese phone maker is eyeing to roll out the handset in Singaporean and Hong Kong markets on May 12th of this year. The company is planning to release announcements for the Taiwanese, Indonesian, and Malaysian markets soon.
When Xiaomi's Mi 4i hit the Indian market in the later part of April, the device managed to sell 40,000 units in just a span of 15 seconds. The China-based mobile manufacturer is expecting that the release of the device in Singapore and Hong Kong will also produce similar success, specifically translating to more stock for third party resellers, where customers can purchase the Mi 4i handset at a bit of a premium cost.
Xiaomi positioned the Mi 4i smartphone as its flagship device for emerging markets (of which India is a prime example). It comes with a full HD display screen, complemented with a 13 megapixel camera on the rear side. Hardware specs-wise, it is equipped with an octa core Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 chip set, with 16 gigabytes of internal storage (plus a couple of 4G SIM slots), and powered by a large 3,120 mAh battery. The handset runs on Android 5.0 Lollipop, the latest version of the Android mobile operating system.
Customers based in Asian markets can buy the device online at the Mi.com store. The smartphone is offered at $210 for Singaporean consumers, and at $205 for Hong Kong buyers (which is the same price in the Indian market).
Xiaomi is also planning to release its Mi Note Pro phablet to the Chinese market on May 12th of this year, the same date the company is releasing its Mi 4i smartphone to Singaporean and Hong Kong markets.
Unveiled during a launch event held in Beijing, China earlier this year, the Mi Note Pro is an upgraded version of Xiaomi's Mi Note phablet. The Mi Note Pro features a 5.7 inch display screen that has a QHD resolution of 2,560 by 1,440 pixels (which makes it compete with the Samsung Galaxy S6 and the LG G4 flagship devices), a Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 chip set, 4 gigabytes of random access memory (RAM), and 64 gigabytes of internal storage.
Chinese consumers can purchase the Mi Note Pro at a price of $485. The Mi Note has not been released outside of the Chinese market yet, which means that the Mi Note Pro's release date for international markets will likely be at a later date.
