Popular Chinese smartphone-maker Xiaomi is reportedly planning to launch a new Black Mi 4i variant in India on Wednesday, 10 June.

The company (via Facebook) has posted a teaser video titled Welcome to the dark side'. In the nine-second clip, we see the white model of Xiaomi Mi 4i being coloured black with a permanent marker, hinting the much awaited Black Mi 4i will be finally making its way to India.

Xiaomi has announced that the new variant will be officially launched at 8pm on 10 June (Wednesday).

As far as Xiaomi Mi 4i Black specifications and price are concerned, we believe it will be similar to the white model (unveiled in April) which is already being sold in India for ₹12,999 via Flipkart. But, nothing is set on stone. We just have to wait a few more hours to know what Xiaomi has in store for us.

For the uninitiated, Xiaomi Mi 4i sports a 5.0-inch full HD screen and run on the Android 5.0 Lollipop OS (with MIUI) backed by the second generation Snapdragon 615 Octa-core SoC, Adreno 405 graphics engine, 2GB RAM, 16GB inbuilt storage capacity and a high-capacity 3,120mAh battery that can power the phone for close to 1.5 days.
