Xiaomi Mi 4i is tasty but sadly confined to India

Xiaomi is doing it again, teasing the rest of the world with a decent smartphone at an affordable price that only a very select few can get their hands on. True to their word, they have unveiled the Xiaomi Mi 4i to woo the masses in India. It may not really go head to head with high-end flagships, but at a fraction of the price, it might pretty much be worth it, especially when you consider the somewhat high-end components coming from respectable manufacturers.

New Xiaomi teasers point to premium Xiaomi Mi 4i

This will be new and exciting times for China-based manufacturer Xiaomi, regarded by most as one of the fastest growing manufacturers from China due to their build quality. On April 23, Xiaomi is scheduled to unveil a new device, and for the first time, the unveiling will be outside of China, in New Delhi, India. The device is expected to be the Xiaomi Mi 4i.

LeTV looks to be a new player in high-end devices

It wasn’t too long ago when China-based brands like Xiaomi, OPPO, and OnePlus made their debut and sounded their challenge to the established order of smartphone manufacturers. These young Chinese companies were aggressive and were willing to sell devices that have the same or almost the same specs as the flagship and high-end devices Samsung, Apple, HTC or LG – and selling them at ridiculously low prices. It looks like we have another new player in LeTV.

Xiaomi cracking down on fakes, losing millions of sales

Fake phones are nothing new especially in China where everything can be manufactured. From gadgets to designer bags to toys and even eggs, you can find them in the country. While that proves how smart and ingenious the Chinese people are, it's not exactly good for big tech business like Xiaomi. Fans of the Chinese phone maker were reportedly being duped of counterfeit phones. This was discovered when Bluebox Labs unknowingly tested a fake Xiaomi a couple of months ago.

Xiaomi launches the Redmi 2A in China, a cheaper Redmi 2

If the Xiaomi Redmi 2 is the Chinese manufacturer’s entry level phone, then what do you say to a cheaper variant of an entry level phone? Well, that’s what the new Xiaomi Redmi 2A is – a poor man’s Redmi 2, if you will. Launched on the occasion of the fifth founding anniversary of Xiaomi in Beijing, it looks like the USD$45 billion-worth company is feeling a little magnanimous and presented the low-end market with a real treat.

Xiaomi announces new 40-inch Android-run Mi TV 2

Smart TVs may have not taken the market by storm just yet, but we're envisioning a future where we all do our browsing, viewing, and gaming at home on just one screen, and it's not your trusty old simple LCD TV. Xiaomi has just announced their latest Smart TV, the 40-inch Mi TV 2 in China.

Xiaomi and Microsoft: acquaintances, not partners

Among the Windobws 10 related announcements that Microsoft made this week, perhaps the one that caused some flurry the most is its bombshell in China. Redmond announced, almost in passing, that it will be hooking up with some Xiaomi Mi 4 powers users to let them test Windows 10 on their devices, leading to some amount of rumor around Microsoft's and Xiaomi's seemingly new friendship. In response, ex-Googler and now Xiaomi exec Hugo Barra is clarifying some points, partly to appease some concerns from the Android community.

Microsoft is cooking up a Windows 10 ROM for Xiaomi Mi 4

Microsoft just announced its stronger initiative to push its business further in China, by pushing Windows 10 harder, with a little help from Chinese companies. Among those namedropped was Xiaomi, where Microsoft explicitly mentioned that select Xiaomi Mi 4 power users will be able to test Windows 10 on their devices. This effectively meant that Microsoft is developing a ROM for the smartphone that will practically overwrite Android. Given how Xiaomi has been a strong Android player so far, it is unsurprising to see a few feathers ruffled and a few eyebrows raised.
