It was a moment that seemed to come out of an Apple announcement: just as Xiaomi co-founder and CEO Lei Jun was wrapping up his extensive presentation of the company’s latest flagship Mi 4 smartphone, a new slide appeared in the backdrop, bearing the words, “One more thing…”. Soon after, the world was introduced to the Mi Band, a fitness, activity and sleep tracker that costs a fraction of the competition.
Xiaomi’s latest flagship smartphone, the Mi 4, is interestingly packed with a camera sensor that is used by two other Chinese flagship smartphones. The second-gen IMX 214 stacked CMOS sensor from Sony made its appearance first on the OnePlus One as well as the Oppo Find 7 and Find 7a. It is indeed odd for three flagship smartphones to feature a similar camera sensor, but each smartphone has its own software tweaks to separate it from the rest.
At Xiaomi’s experience zone for the Mi 4, we managed to capture some sample shots to have an initial assessment on how the camera performs.
While the newly announced Xiaomi Mi 4 is busy getting everyone’s attention for today, let’s not forget that the fledgling Chinese manufacturer still have plenty of devices under its wing. One of them is the Redmi 1S which is the most affordable Xiaomi’s smartphone in Malaysia at the moment.
If you somehow missed your chance to get one on your hands from Xiaomi Malaysia’s website, then you might want to look out for an announcement from DiGi tomorrow.
Xiaomi’s Mi 4 is finally here.
