A mid-life Xiaomi Mi3S update could bring more than just a boost in hardware to the phone and may result in a better looking device.
The Xiaomi Mi3 is one fine device, but it has hardly aged well and is already looking bulky in comparison to rival phones like the Oppo Find 7a, Meizu MX3 and Gionee Elife E7. All is not lost though as an updated Xiaomi Mi3S is rumoured to launch very soon with an improved design!
According to various sources the Xiaomi Mi3S will be the best looking Xiaomi phone to ever launch (hardly difficult)and will boast updated hardware. Apparently the Mi3S will have a 5-inch 1080 display (2K will be kept for the Mi4), Snapdragon 801 MSM8974Ac processor, 3GB RAM, 8 mega-pixel front camera, 13 mega-pixel rear and 4G LTE.
With pricing believed to stay at the magic 1999 Yuan mark, the Xiaomi Mi3S could mean terrible news for the OnePlus One which has been updated to 2.5Ghz 801 CPU and 3GB RAM.[ Source ]
