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.

Xiaomi is very new to the cut-throat world of Android smartphone manufacturing, with its first device, the Xiaomi MI-One, releasing only last fall. But if you’re into Android development or are familiar with custom ROMs, the name Xiaomi  will be familiar to you, as they are the developers of the popular [...]

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

Ever noticed how Android users have these different types of settings on their devices? Some techies are really good with these things since they know how to tinker with the User Interface (UI).

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 [...]

by: Alvin YbañezFebruary 9, 2012

The looks of pure Ice Cream Sandwich appear tantalizing on the Samsung Galaxy Nexus, but for some people, the device dons a better look if it wears the face of MIUI 4.  Owing to a clean and easy-to-use user interface, MIUI is one of the world’s favorites when it comes to custom Android ROMs.

Using the freshest and latest builds from Chinese sources, DroidVicious (the ROM’s developer) took pains to port the Chinese build, translate it, and deodex it so that the rest of the Galaxy Nexus world can enjoy MIUI 4 on their handsets.  MIUI, in case you haven’t heard yet, originates in China.

Install AdyScorpius MIUI 4 Ice Cream Sandwich ROM on Samsung Galaxy S2 GT-I9100

by: Alvin YbañezFebruary 6, 2012

Some owners of the Samsung Galaxy S2 will stick to what Samsung officially throws their way, while some others will prefer to grab the latest (read: Android 4.0.3 Ice Cream Sandwich) code based on AOSP builds.  But, some others won’t settle for anything less than MIUI 4 on their Galaxy S2 GT-I9100.  And, there’s good reason for that.

MIUI is one of the most well-designed custom ROMs for Android.  It blends Android’s power and flexibility with the polished user interface of iOS (which, arguably is much better than iOS’s user interface).  That is why MIUI, the latest of which is version 4, has a cult of devout fans and loyal followers.  XDA [...]
