It’s finally here
A few months after the global launch of the Mi 4i in India, the company’s global flagship has finally arrived in the Philippines. Xiaomi Philippines is pricing the Mi 4i at Php 9,799 when it officially hits retails Lazada later this month on July 29, and offline stores on August 1.

To quickly recap, the Mi 4i sports Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 615 processor paired with 2GB of RAM, 16GB of storage and a full HD display. The back of the Mi 4i uses an anti-grease coating which prevents it from picking up dust and other grime with daily use.
As far as actual selling goes, the Xiaomi Mi 4i will go on sale first in Lazada, and will appear in offline stores by August. In a reassuring move, Xiaomi has said that prices for the Mi 4i will be the same across the board, offline or online, which quells some of the fears of Xiaomi fans of a higher price now that the company has gone offline. Xiaomi has also partnered with Smart to offer the Mi 4i to its subscribers but no word on the official plans as of yet for the phone.
