Xiaomi Mi 4 Faces a Price Drop in India, Ahead of Tentative Mi 4i Launch
The Mi 4 was one of the top-selling products by Xiaomi, and it is still taking a lead with its amazing specifications and reasonable pricing. The Chinese consumer electronics firm has given one more reason to its customers to pick the handset over the 2014 flagship killer OnePlus One. Xiaomi has slashed the price of its Mi 4 handset, making both the 64GB and 16GB variants cheaper by Rs. 2,000.
The official Mi India website speaks about the refreshed price tag of the Mi 4:
The 64GB version will now cost Rs. 21,999 instead of Rs. 23,999, while the 16GB version can be purchased at a price of Rs. 17,999 down from Rs. 19,999. Users can buy it through Flipkart or The Mobile Store, whereas the recent online partners Snapdeal and Amazon will receive it soon. Xiaomi India Head Manu Jain notified about the same via Twitter:

Unlike the Mi Fan Festival flash sale that offered the Mi 4 at discounted rates, this price cut by Xiaomi is permanent. Also, it should be worth noting that the announcement of the price cut came a week before the Global premier of a mysterious new smartphone. The upcoming smartphone is speculated to be a low-end version of the Mi 4.
Meanwhile, we earlier surfaced the news that the company is working on a bigger sibling of Mi 4, the Mi 5. The smartphone is said to mark the debut of the new interface MIUI 7. According to official AOKP blog, the new interface is codenamed MiKangy, and will be a whole new take on the Android UX, combining the salient features of top ROMs like CM, PA, Omni and AOKP.
The Mi 5 is yet to go official. Till then, you can buy the Mi 4 through the links provided below:
