 Xiaomi announced its new flagship the Smartphone Mi 4 on July 22. In the four years since Xaomi was founded, the release of this android handset has been widely accepted as the most significant advance for the company to date.Reasonably priced at 1999 yuan ($323) for the 16G version, and 2499 yuan for the 64G version, the Mi 4 phone carries an impressive high-speed 2.5GHz Snapdragon 801 quad-core processor, with a large capability RAM of 3GB. With the addition of a 13-megapixel lens rear camera, and an 8-megapixel front camera to boot, such hardware backup notably out-performs its rivals in cost-efficiency and superior capabilities.According to Lei Jun, CEO and founder of Xiaomi, one of the most noteworthy features of this new cell-phone device lies in its design. Instead of using a plastic frame like Samsung, Lei showed his unique ingenuity by choosing a metal frame. Rather than use plastic edges between the screen and these metal frames like iPhone 5s, Xiaomi applied the advanced technique of edge-coating to perfectly fit  the glass-made screen into the metal frame. Lei also unveiled the newly developed smart bracelet, which can contribute to monitoring sleep and exercise by those who wear them. By linking with Xiaomi cell-phones, this bracelet, equipped with a unique ID proof, enables customers to unlock the screen without a password.Xiaomi is also seeking to develop itself into a comprehensive platform for services and communication by launching the Xiaomi Yellow Page. Customers can pay phone bills, buy train tickets, and call taxis via this platform. The new operation system MIUI 6 is expected to be released next month. Global Times
