Xiaomi confirms July 22 launch, teases “steel metal” build

Xiaomi sends out media invitations for its grand product launch to happen on July 22, 2014. A teaser posted earlier shows a big “4” while the invite talks about a “journey of a piece of steel,” hinting on a metal build on its upcoming flagship phone – most likely the Xiaomi Mi 4.


Building on the success of the Mi 3, the Mi 4 is rumored to come with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 or 805 processor under a 5.2-inch Full HD display. A 3GB RAM is also expected to support the device along with 16GB of internal storage. In addition, the Mi 4 will allegedly sport a 16-megapixel rear shooter and support for LTE bands.


As teased by Xiaomi itself, steel metal will play a huge role in this new device so we’re looking forward to a metal build better than the Mi 3’s. For comparison, you may check out the specs of Xiaomi’s current flagship below.
