When Xiaomi unveiled the Mi 4i in India earlier this year, one of the major complaints about the phone has been its 16GB built-in storage. The lack of a microSD card slot meant that there were limited options for users looking to store their media collection. Xiaomi has now rectified the issue by launching a 32GB variant of the device for ₹14,999 ($236), which will go on sale in the country from July 28. The standard 16GB model is available in the country for ₹12,999 ($205).
The Mi 4i is Xiaomi's "flagship" offering in the budget segment, with the phone offering a 5-inch full-HD display, octa-core Snapdragon 615 SoC, 2GB RAM, 13MP camera, 5MP front shooter, Wi-Fi ac, Bluetooth 4.1 and a 3,120mAh battery. The handset is the first to offer MIUI 6 based on Android 5.0.
Unlike the standard variant of the Mi 4i, which is available on e-commerce sites such as Flipkart, Amazon and Snapdeal, it looks like the 32GB version will be limited to the Mi.com portal. Xiaomi is also exclusively offering the grey color option for the handset through its online store for the 16GB and the 32GB models.
Xiaomi is currently celebrating its one-year anniversary in India, and is set to launch new accessories in the country over the course of the week. Head here for more details.
