Ahead of the company's next week, leaked certification and benchmark listings tipped innards of a handset dubbed Mi 4i, which appears to be a more affordable variant of the Mi 4 flagship smartphone.
According to leaked benchmark listings, the Mi 4i will run Android 5.0.2 Lollipop with possibly a new version of MIUI. It will be powered by a 64-bit octa-core Snapdragon 615 processor clocked at 1.65GHz and coupled with 2GB of RAM.
Comparing preliminary leaked specifications to the Mi 4, the Mi 4i seems to be a 'lite' variant of the original version that is powered by a 2.5GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 SoC with 3GB of RAM.
The tipped specifications match those of a previously leaked Xiaomi handset codenamed 'Ferrari', which was earlier spotted on benchmark listings with a 4.9-inch full-HD (1080x1920 pixels) display, Adreno 405 GPU, 12-megapixel rear camera, 4.8-megapixel front camera, and 16GB of built-in storage.
Xiaomi's 2014 flagship smartphone, the Mi 4, on Thursday received its first price cut in India, making the smartphone Rs. 2,000 cheaper than its launch price.
Xiaomi India has already confirmed that the global premier of Xiaomi will see CEO and Founder Lei Jun, President and Co-Founder Lin Bin, and VP Xiaomi Global Hugo Barra, in attendance.
