Xiaomi Philippines has finally launched the much awaited Mi 4i smartphone here in the country and will be available online on Lazada, in several authorized re-sellers and under Smart’s post-paid plans.

Some key features include a full HD 5-inch screen with Sunlight Display, Snapdragon 615 processor with 2GB RAM, 4G LTE connectivity and a pair of 13MP and 5MP cameras.

Photography is handled by a 13MP camera at the back that uses technologies from Samsung and Sony. The front camera boasts an f/1.8 aperture which should produce high quality selfies even in low light.

It can connect to 4G LTE networks with two SIM card slots, dual band Wi-Fi, wireless display and Bluetooth 4.1.

A 3,120mAh battery should be enough to make it last throughout a day of moderate use. But if it needs to be charged, its Quick Charge feature can make it reach 60% battery life in just 40 minutes.

The Xiaomi Mi 4i has an official price in the Philippines of ₱9,799.00 but only the dark gray color option will be available at first.

Its first flash sale will happen on July 29, 2015 on Lazada Philippines to be followed by its availability in several authorized re-sellers on August 1, 2015.

Those who like post-paid plans can pre-order the Xiaomi Mi 4i on Smart’s dedicated mini-site starting on July 24. The first 50 customers will get a free Mi Power Bank.
