But the more important question here is whether the 16GB variant of the Mi 4 worth Rs 19,999 of your hard earned cash. The company just announced that it will be selling the 64GB variant of the Mi 4 in India on February 24 for Rs 23,999. It still doesn’t support LTE, though, but does expand the storage by four folds.
To those who think that 16GB storage is enough for them, the 19,999 price point for the handset is reasonably enticing. To those who plan to install a lot of apps, and store a lot of songs and other content, 64GB is perhaps the better choice.
