Xiaomi cuts Mi-One price to $200 ahead of its new quad-core phone unveiling

by: Bams SadewoAugust 15, 2012

The phone that puts Xiaomi in the smartphone map in China – and possibly the world – has finally received the obligatory price cut. Offered for RMB 1,999 when it first launched last year to great response from customers, the Xiaomi Mi-One can now be had for only RMB 1,299, which translates to about $200.

The Mi-One smartphone is a high-end offering from what is poised to become the next tech giant to come out from China. The specs of the Mi-One speak for themselves, as the phone boasts a dual-core 1.5GHz Snapdragon S3 processor, 4-inch WVGA display, 1GB RAM, 4GB internal storage, 8MP rear camera, the beloved MIUI ROM, and a 1,930mAh battery.

Chinese Xiaomi Phone 2 to launch August 16 in seemingly indestructible packaging

by: J. Angelo RacomaAugust 5, 2012

The Chinese are apparently crazy over smartphones. After all, this country of 1 billion mobile phone users is the biggest and fastest-growing market for mobile devices today, and so brands are eager to get their wares marketed here.

However, the Chinese are also a practical community, and here’s where bang-for-the-buck (or yuan) is considered important. Smartphone maker Xiaomi, for one, has launched its Mi-One earlier this year to rave reviews. At 1,999 yuan ($300) a pop, the Mi-One was a premium smartphone with a not-so-premium price.

Xiaomi has reportedly sold 3 million units as of June, just a bit over six months after the [...]

Xiaomi earns nearly a billion dollars in H1 2012

by: Ankit BanerjeeJuly 27, 2012

There is a wave of Chinese manufacturers looking to establish themselves in the international Android market. When we think Chinese OEMs, the first thought goes to companies that have have been frequenting tech shows with some amazing devices on offer, such as Huawei, ZTE, Baidu, and Meizu. Another, less known, name that is coming up in conversations is Xiaomi.

Next-gen Xiaomi phone to have quad-core S4 Pro chip and 720p display

by: LucianJuly 23, 2012

Xiaomi is the Chinese company behind the popular MIUI ROM.

Last year, they launched their own Xiaomi phone with the MIUI ROM on top, and it seems they’ve been fairly successful with it, as they’ve just announced a $216 million investment in their company. Moreover, leaks are pointing out to a next-gen quad-core smartphone with a 720p display, coming soon from them.

The chip on the rumored phone comes from Qualcomm, and since the only quad-core processor they’ve announced for this year is the S4 Pro with the Adreno 320 GPU, that’s most likely what the high-end Xiaomi will have. The device doesn’t seem to have a front-facing camera, [...]

by: Carl ParkerJune 29, 2012

Chinese smartphone maker Xiaomi raises $216 million in new funding, looking to spread MIUI-based devices

by: AdrianJune 26, 2012

We’ve talked time and again over the past few months about the “Chinese offensive” on the global smartphone market, led by companies like Huawei, ZTE, Alibaba and Baidu. However, it seems that there are even more Chinese tech manufacturers looking to make it big in an Apple and Android dominated world, and some of the smaller ones, like Xiaomi, are growing in leaps and bounds.

Xiaomi is not very well-known in the Western world, and even in China, Xiaomi is hardly a household name. However, the name of the 2-year old company may ring a bell for some of you, with its claim to fame being  the MIUI custom Android ROM and the MIUI-based MI-One smartphone released last [...]
