Bajaj was attending Xiaomi s event today in China and was reportedly told about the event by the copmany s VP Hugo Barra. The timeline corroborates with Manu Jain s revelation earlier today that the Mi 4 would be launching in India towards the end of this month.
The Mi 4 was earlier speculated to launch in December last year, but has since seen quite a few delays. The company is also embroiled in a legal battle with Ericsson, which could have further delayed plans for launching the Mi 3 successor in the country.
To recap, the Xiaomi Mi 4 was unveiled in July last year. As far as specifications go, the former flagship device flaunts a 5-inch full HD 1080p display, and is powered by a 2.5GHz Snapdragon 801 quad-core processor paired with 3GB of RAM. Also included is 16GB internal storage.
The smartphone also features a 13-megapixel rear camera, 8-megapixel front-facing camera, and a 3,080mAh battery that the company claims can survive for a day and half on normal usage. It also claims that the battery can be charged up to 60 percent in just an hour.
