Xiaomi may have only just revealed the Mi Note 2 and Mi MIX, but now a couple more devices appear to have sneaked their way online. According to a new Xiaomi listing on the website for China’s telecommunications and certification center, TENAA, Xiaomi models 2016111 and 2016112 have just been approved for release.

The entry-level handsets – whose official names are still unknown – feature identical specs save for a microSD card slot on version 2016111, suggesting that they’re variants of the same model (so expect them to house the same design also).

The devices come with a 5-inch TFT display at HD (1280 x 720 pixels) resolution, an (unspecified) 1.4 GHz processor, 2 GB of RAM and 16 GB of internal storage, expandable up to 128 GB on model 2016111 only.

On the rear is a 13 MP camera and the at the front, a 5 MP sensor, while the battery comes in 3030 mAh. Bluetooth, 4G LTE, and a fingerprint scanner are also included, but no NFC.

The listings say that the devices will run Android Marshmallow out of the box, but pricing and availability details aren’t specified. That said, these handsets will undoubtedly cost less than the flagships announced at Xiaomi’s recent Beijing event. Read more about those via the links at the top of the page.
