Xiaomi officially released the Mi4i to the international market at a conference held in India just last week. And today, benchmarks of the new device have been released showing how the Mi4i performs compared to other devices in its class.
As a refresher, the Mi4i is a smaller, lighter, and lower-specced version of the company’s flagship Mi4 smartphone. The design of the new device is slightly rounder than its bigger brother but it’s also more than 1mm thinner and almost 20 grams lighter.
While it does feature a similar 5-inch 1080p display to the Mi4, the new smartphone is instead powered by a 1.7GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 64-bit octa-core processor, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage, and a 3,120mAh battery. It also features a 13-megapixel rear camera and a 5-megapixel front-facing camera.
Now, looking at the benchmark results, the Mi4i turns out to be a mixed bag when it comes to performance. While it does do impressively well at some tasks and tests, it sadly disappoints in some others.
Although, the results are somewhat expected from a device with the Mi4i’s specifications specifically its Snapdragon 615 processor which is positioned as a midrange, mid-market smartphone processor which is exactly what Xiaomi wants the Mi4i to be.
