Xiaomi is reportedly planning to launch the new Mi 4i variant in India on Wednesday.

The company has initiated a new contest for fans ahead of Xiaomi India's 1st anniversary and has posted a cryptic match-stick puzzle on Facebook, which reads – "16=?, Move 4 to Double". The company has promised to unveil a new product and the answer lies in the puzzle. Lucky 5 contestants who solve it will stand a chance to win F-Codes (Friends Code), a coupon with exclusive privileges.

Going by the number of comments (HERE) posted by Xiaomi fans, the company is expected to launch the 32GB version of Mi 4i. Even Xiaomi VC (global operation), Hugo Barra during the launch of Mi 4i (16GB) in New Delhi in April, had hinted at the company's plans to launch higher storage variant later in the year.

Well, it now looks like Xiaomi Mi 4i (32GB) may make its debut on 22 July.
