Xiaomi has seen a dramatic rise in the past years gradually progressing to the position of the third largest smartphone vendor in China. The company appears to be in the intention to launching at least 60 million smartphones in 2014 along with the first 4G models.
As per a report by Focus Taiwan, Xiaomi’s president Bin Lin has stated that 4G enabled Xiaomi handsets will be launched as soon as possible. This way, we can soon expect the Chinese firm to join the 4G bandwagon that is already crowded with high-end offerings from Apple, Samsung, Sony, LG, HTC and others.
While the executive did not mention any other details regarding the 4G LTE smartphones, it is speculated that the first handset to arrive with 4G connectivity is the Xiaomi Mi3S. The handset is expected to be powered by Android 4.4 KitKat and other top-tier specifications such as quad-core 2.5 GHz Snapdragon 801 processor supplemented by 3 GB of RAM, 5 inch FHD 1080p display and an 8 MP primary snapper.
In April, Xiaomi also announced that it will be tapping into the new markets including India, Brazil and few European regions this year.
