It seems that Xiaomi, the Chinese smartphone manufacturer that has been touted to be the third largest company of its kind in the world, might be working on a more affordable version of its recently launched flagship smartphone, the Xiaomi Mi4. Just what will this particular model be called then? Apparently, those who are interested might want to mark down November 11th on their respective calendars, as that is when the Xiaomi Mi4 Youth is said to be revealed.
While the regular flagship Xiaomi Mi4 boasts of a 5” Full HD display and a Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor with a starting price point of $320 thereabouts, it is said that the Xiaomi Mi4 Youth will be a wee bit slower on the performance side, not to mention being easier on your pockets. The “Youth” suffix should not be confused with the “Mini” suffix that we see in many other handsets in recent times though.
A recent TENAA listing (which happens to be the FCC equivalent in China) did bring our attention to the very real possibility of the Xiaomi Mi4 Youth being accompanied by 2GB RAM and 16GB of internal memory – which is contrasted against 3GB RAM and double the internal memory found on the regular Xiaomi Mi4, although it is said to pack a similar display size, resolution count and processor. If this is the case, then it ought to definitely be cheaper.
