Chinese manufacturer Xiaomi is making a splash by unveiling a couple of new devices. First off— in celebrating its very first phone the Mi-One, Xiaomi has developed a new smartphone called the Mi-One S… which happens to be a slightly refreshed version of the original Mi-One. The big feature about the new smartphone is that it will be based off a new version of the MIUI OS, which is actually a custom build of Jelly Bean. In addition, the smartphone will feature a whopping 1.7GHz dual-core processor, 8MP camera with better sensors. The entire package will run customers 1,500 yuan or roughly $235 USD.
The real kicker however— is the formal announcement of the Mi-Two superphone. This piece of machinery will feature an ultra-rare Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro (APQ8064) quad-core processor clocked at 1.5GHz coupled with the new Adreno 320 GPU which utilizes the new 28nm manufacturing process. The device will also feature a 4.3-inch 1280 x 720 IPS display, Bluetooth 4.0, 2GB RAM and a 2,000mAh battery that’s expandable to 3,000mAh. This latest toy will also feature the latest MIUI software which is again based off Jelly Bean. Oh and in case you’re wondering: no the device will not be over $500. Heck– the device will barely be over $300 as Xiaomi has set the price of the Mi-Two at a mere 2,000 yuan or $315 USD.
Of course both devices will only be available in Chinese markets for now, but the hope is that Xiaomi will follow fellow compatriot ZTE and release devices like those out here in the States— well someday at least.
