During the MIUI 7 Global ROM premiere in Delhi, Xiaomi had launched a limited edition Mi4i in India. Unlike the existing Xiaomi Mi4i which was only available in Grey and White till now, the limited edition models will feature yellow, pink and blue back covers. The device will go on sale via the company's official website from 2PM.
The internals of the device though would be the same. Under the hood is the octacore Snapdragon 615 SoC with 2GB of RAM. On the front is a 5 inch FHD (1920x1080) display with Sunlight technology and a 5MP front snapper. The rear possesses a 13MP Samsung/Toshiba camera and a speaker's mesh present in the bottom along with the Mi logo. Unlike the existing Black and White back covers which sports a matte finish, the colored plates will bear a glossy finish to it.
The limited edition devices are only available in the 16GB variant though at Rs 12,999. So far it seems like the 64GB variant won't get this limited edition color treatment. Nevertheless Gizbot expects Xiaomi to come up with replaceable back cover in these three colors in future. This will enable existing Mi4i owners and potential buyers of Mi4i 64GB to customize their phones as per their taste.
Since the devices are limited edition models, expect a huge rush for the device. Be sure to log in to the mi.com website at least 15-20 mins before the sale begins.
