We know that Xiaomi are lining up a new phone to replace the old M1s, and have even seen the official network license approval from the Chinese authorities, but it’s the conflicting reports which have made things confusing.
Yesterday we reported that sources in Shenzhen claim that 300,000 MT6589 quad-core equipped phones are currently being assembled ready for a launch on April 9th, but in the past we have seen benchmarks of Xiaomi device running a dual-core Snapdragon processor and reaching Antutu scores of around 18,000.
Reports are now surfacing that 2 new phones could arrive on April 9th one a low-cost Xiaomi Mi2S which will sport a Mediatek chip and a higher range model called the Mi2a which a Qualcomm MSM8930 dual-core clocked at 1.7Ghz.
