Xiaomi's newly-launched Mi 4i has received a massive response in India.
The company (via Twitter) has confirmed that it received a record 3 lakh plus registration for Xiaomi Mi 4i within 4 days of its launch. It is all set for its first ever flash sale on Flipkart on 30 April.
"#Mi4i: we got 3+ lakhs of registrations for Mi 4i during 1st 4 days. Thank you everyone for your love and support :) @MiIndiaOfficial," reads a post on Manu Kumar Jain's (@manukumarjain) official Twitter handle.
The overwhelming reception from the sub-continent public is understandable as it is the most feature-rich smartphone in the sub-₹13,000 price range.
Xiaomi Mi 4i sports 5.0-inch full HD IPS screen with Sharp / JDI OGS (One Glass Solution) full lamination and it is the company's first device run on the Android 5.0 Lollipop OS.
Under the hood, it comes packed with the 2nd generation 1.65GHZ Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 Series Octa-core (1.7GHz quad-core ARM Cortex A53 + 1.0GHz quad-core A53) CPU, Adreno 405 GPU, 2GB RAM, 16GB inbuilt memory and high-capacity 3120 mAh battery that can run the phone for 1.5 days under normal usage.
Xiaomi's original flagship smartphone Mi4 received a lukewarm response, but its affordable variant Mi 4i is expected to stir up another storm in the India's mid-range smartphone category just like Mi3 did last year, and this will certainly boost the morale of the company.
