2nd generation xiaomi smartphone name leaked!As the Xiaomi M1 continues to take China by storm rumors of the 2nd generation Xiaomi Android smartphone are beginning to emerge, and the latest just came from Xiaomi themselves.

After posting our exclusive first look at the next generation Xiaomi phone last week, complete with a rumored specification including a 12 mega-pixel rear camera, 2.5 GHZ CPY and 2.5GB RAM, we received a message from Xiaomi via Twitter.

The message says:

“@Gizchina:Haha some concepts from Mi fans or maybe…..! what is you guys’ ideas about MI-2?”

While the message neither confirms or denies the the 2nd generation Xiaomi and it’s claimed specification, the name mentioned “MI-2″ isn’t the one mentioned in our original article!

xiaomi m2 concept and specificaions leakedIs this a slip up on Xiaomi’s part, accidentally leaking the next generation 2.5 GHZ Xiaomi’s name as the MI-2, possibly an internal codename for the next generation Android 4.0 smartphone?

  • A 4.6-inch touch screen.
  • 2.5Ghz CPU.

  • 32GB of storage.
