Xiaomi has somehow managed to fit in the best processors available in the market. The handset is powered by a 64-bit hexa-core Snapdragon 808 processor clocked at 1.8GHz. The two major changes over the Xiaomi Mi 4i are a new powerhouse in the form of the Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 which is similar to the same six-core chip powering LG's G4 and the nee Moto X and the second one being an improved 13-megapixel camera sensor with phase-detection autofocus. The 13 MP rear sensor comes equipped with Sony IMX258 or a Samsung S5K3M2 sensor. The 5MP front snapper comes with 85-degree wide angle lens and a self timer.
