Xiaomi, the Chinese manufacturer of smartphones, has announced a new handset ahead of their flagship Mi 5 launch event. It’s the Mi 4s, an upgraded version of the Mi 4 handset that was company’s flagship last year. This is quite a surprising move from the brand, which no one could have speculated.

It will also support 4G LTE connectivity, which was absent from the original Mi 4 handset, although, company did introduced a 4G LTE variant. The device will be fueled by a larger 3260 mAh capacity battery.
It will have the similar display and camera package, for a fact; a 5-inch Full HD display and 13-megapixel image sensor on the rear. This surprising handset from Xiaomi looks quite stunning with its metal glass body construction. The device is priced at 1699 Yuan, which approximately converts to $260/ INR 17900.
