- 5-inch HD IPS display protected by Corning OGS Glass
- MIUI 6 running on top of Android 4.4.4 KitKat

The closest competitor for the MI4 is the Oneplus One and probably Xiaomi was facing the heat from Oneplus One’s popularity in India and they had to reduce the price to match it, it not less. For the same price Oneplus One offers 4G connectivity and that was one major differentiation. Design wise, MI4 offers better aesthetics and durability. MIUI 6 is pretty stable, but now that Oneplus One is updated to Lollipop, MI4 will also have to update the OS soon.
Mi4 is now available in Flipkart and The Mobile store. It will soon be available from Amazon and Snapdeal as well.
