China-based smartphone manufacturer Xiaomi is not a very recognized name in China, but it is a huge company in its home country with a large customer base. The company has recently launched a smartphone Xiaomi Mi 4, which is powered by a 2.5GHz quad-core Snapdragon 801 processor and 3GB of RAM. The company claims that it is the fastest smartphone in the world.

The smartphone has slightly upgraded specifications compared to the Sony Xperia Z2 which boasts the 2.3GHz quad-core 801 chip and 3GB of RAM. So it has some decent grounding for its claim.

The latest Mi 4 is also equipped with a 5-inch full HD display, and is available with internal storage capacity of either 16GB or 64GB. The smartphone also has a 13MP rear camera, 8MP front snapper and a 3080mAh battery.

As far as its design is concerned, the Xiaomi Mi 4 boasts a stainless steel band encompassing the slender device, similar to Apple’s design.

The smartphone is commercially available at a price of much affordable USD320 for the 16GB model, while the higher 64GB variant costs USD400.
