My (formerly Xiaomi, costs leave that denomination) has become the great promise (confirmed, for many) of the Chinese mobile market. Their good proposals in the past have been consolidated with a strategy that now tends gradually to international expansion, not to mention the launch of new terminals. And today is precisely the presentation of their latest high-end smartphone.
It’s Xiaomi MI4, terminal that follows the footsteps of the Mi-One Xiaomi, Xiaomi Mi2 and Xiaomi Mi3 and returns to offer a promising proposal by its design and its famous ROM, MIUI both the choice of its hardware components.
The novelty of my 4 in terms of design is the presence of a frame that is made of stainless steel (curious choice), resulting in the introduction of this type of components in the production of a few devices that so far the plastic was absolute protagonist. The smartphone weighs 149 grams.
That plastic is also clear interest in the design of the new Mi4, but unless the metal make Act of presence – something that overtook yesterday – to give a Premium look to the frame that surrounds the device, and that reminds to the finish of the latest iPhone. The back – which is replaceable, and that allows you to attach some of the covers of their own design my showed in the presentation-that Yes, seeks to provide a finish simulating metal despite being made with plastic, an effect that we saw in the LG G3 and that in effect gives the feeling of having a construction Premium that many users value positively.
Moreover we have a design which side frames are very thin (only 0.3 mm, something that was also remarkable in the LG G3), while the upper and the lower are more bulky. That paragraph allows ourselves to a total width of 67.5 mm, that according to my is the smallest among the 5 inch screen devices. At the back we find the logo my at the bottom, on top is the camera and, under it (and not to one side, as in other devices), the Flash.
Lei Jun, CEO of MI, highlighted that the my 4 is ‘the terminal’ the world’s fastest. To support this claim is, above all, the quad – core processor, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 2.5 GHz which comes with 3 GB of RAM and storage capacity ranging between 16 and 64 GB.
While the rumours pointed to a 5.5-inch screen, the Mi 4 has a panel of 5 inches with Full HD resolution (1,920 x 1,080 pixels). In my highlight the process of lamination of this IPS display and the gamut of color that covers the 84 range NTSC. Equally remarkable is the fact that it is the first 4 G/LTE terminal of my. For now only used chips will only be compatible with LTE bands used in China, but he is expected to variants of my 4 with LTE chips compatible with bands used outside the Asian giant appearing in September. Connectivity comes complete with support WiFi 802. 11ac, WiFi Direct, Bluetooth 4.0, in addition to the GPS receiver and the NFC bracket.
One of the most noteworthy features is undoubtedly its battery, which has a capacity of 3,080 mAh and that probably provide the device of an autonomy that is remarkable, especially considering that this autonomy will not be too compromised by the diagonal of the screen or by resolution. The choice of 5 inches and a FullHD resolution are good choices to help that efficiency in consumption. This battery, they say, is able to endure a day and a half of ‘normal’ use without problems, and also offers a mode of fast load which makes that we have 60 of the battery in just one hour, another of the options that certainly help improve this section. Full recharging takes two and a half hours.
On the other hand, Xiaomi MI4 Smartphone is equipped with a rear camera 13 Mpixels with opening f1.8 (remarkable) thanks to the Sony IMX214 sensor, which also offers the ability to record video 4 K. The front camera is also remarkable: no less than 8 Mpixel and the same opening (f1.8) IMX219 sensor also Sony. The internal software is MIUI 6 – based on Android 4.4.2-, an edition which in fact is not yet available and that will appear on August 16. The Visual improvements that follow the trail of a custom ROM most elegant and renowned among users, many of which have adapted them to other devices that are not can be seen from my.
