The Xiaomi Mi-2 is now up for grabs unlocked from MobiCity for $449. For the time being, only the white variant of the phone is available, and it should ship in 5-7 days.

Aside from shipping with MIUI, a popular custom ROM that is based on Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, the Mi-2 phone comes with a rather impressive list of specs. It has a 4.3-inch IPS display with 720 x 1,280 pixels and 342 ppi, a quad-core 1.5GHz Snapdragon S4 Pro processor, 2GB of RAM, and 16GB internal storage.
