Xiaomi has launched the Mi 4S successor to the Xiaomi Mi4 in Beijing today. While we were expecting the Xiaomi Mi5 smartphone alone the Mi 4s comes as a surprise package.
The Xiaomi Mi 4s will go on sale in China along with the Xiaomi Mi5 in China , starting from 1st March 2016. The Xiaomi Mi 4s is priced at CNY 1699 or Rs. 18,000.
Availability of the smartphone outside of China is yet not known though we can expect it to launch soon in India as we don’t have any smartphone from Xiaomi which is better than the Mi4.With the price tag close to Rs. 18000 it will compete with the Google Nexus 5X and the OnePlus X which are priced between 16K to 20K in the Indian market.
The smartphone will be available in 4 colors – Black , Gold , Pink and White. The smartphone has rear and front glass panel along with the metallic build. The Xiaomi Mi 4s is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 processor which is quite powerful and used in smartphones like the Nexus 5X and the LG G4.
The smartphone has Adreno 418 GPU which offers excellent gaming performance and you can expect all android games to run lag free on this new Xiaomi mobile.
The smartphone is equipped with 3 GB RAM and comes pre-loaded with the Android Marshmallow OS and MIUI custom skin on top of it.
Xiaomi Mi 4s has 64 GB of internal storage and still comes with a micro-sd card slot which is missing on the Xiaomi Mi5. The smartphone supports upto 200 GB of micro-sd cards.
The smartphone has a 5.0 inch screen with Full HD resolution (1920*1080) and has a 443 PPI. On the Camera front the Xiaomi Mi 4s comes with a 13 mega pixel camera with PDAF and a dual led flash. There is no camera bump at the back of the device.
The smartphone has a 5 mega pixel front camera to take selfies. The other major highlight of the smartphone is the inclusion of a fingerprint scanner at the back of the device.

The Xiaomi Mi 4s also is equipped with the Qualcomm Quick Charge 2.0 technology which offers ultra fast charging of the smartphone.
The Xiaomi Mi 4s has given the micro-Usb port a miss and sports the latest USB Type C port for charging and data transfer.
Overall we believe it is a really positive product from Xiaomi with lots of goodies for the price, and will fit well in the Xiaomi’s portfolio between the Redmi Note 3 and the Mi5.
Buyers who are looking for a smartphone below 18K this can be one of the best device. We will wait a bit more on the camera performance of the device before saying that it is the best you can get for your money.
