Xiaomi is planning to launch an affordable version of the Mi 4. Pegged to be called the E4, the smartphone features all the same specifications as the Mi 4, except for 2GB RAM, instead of the 3GB on the Mi 4.
The smartphone was spotted on certification website TENAA by GizChina, where it states the phone will be unveiled in China first, and should be priced well under the $300 mark in China. If what is reported is true, then the E4 will have all the Mi 4 specifications sans the 3GB RAM. It will flaunt a 5-inch full HD 1080p display with a pixel density of 441ppi. It should be powered by a 2.5GHz Snapdragon 801 quad-core processor paired with 2GB RAM, and will come in 16GB or 64GB internal storage options.
Other features of the handset will include a 13-megapixel rear camera featuring LED flash, 8-megapixel front facing camera, and a 3,080mAh battery. On the connectivity front, the E4 should support Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, and on the software front it should run on Android 4.4.3 KitKat wrapped under Xiaomi’s MIUI 6.0.
Details on availability and time of unveil are rather scarce at the moment, but we expect the E4 to be reasonably priced than the Mi 4.
