Just in time for their anniversary in India
India is one of Xiaomi’s biggest markets, even though the company has barely been there for a year. To commemorate their 1st year anniversary in the country, the Chinese company is teasing a product launch tomorrow, July 22. The teaser, posted on Mi India’s Twitter account, reads “move 4 to double”, which may mean that a 32GB variant of the Mi 4i is on the way.

It’s not surprising that the company would make a variant of the global flagship with bigger storage, as the 16GB on board the Mi 4i is simply not enough for people who use their phones as full-fledged multimedia devices. Hugo Barra also went on record to say that the release of the 16GB version of the Mi 4i was a calculated move, and that Xiaomi was launching higher capacity variants of the Mi 4i in India after the initial launch of the 16GB version.
