So the Quad-core Xiaomi MI2 looks like it could be named the Xiaomi M2 after all and will likely cost around 2699 Yuan similar to the Meizu MX 4-core!
While Chinese phone, UI and software brand Xiaomi might be fantastic at producing low-cost Android phones, and have one of the best marketing teams I’ve seen in China, they are absolutely terrible at keeping things secret.

If this leaked photo turns out to be true then the quad-core Xiaomi will be named the M2 rather than the MI2 and will come packaged in a much more luxurious box than the current M1 which comes in a much cooler and eco-friendly plain brown recycled cardboard box.
Along with the leaked packaging Chinese Xiaomi website Xiaomifans is also claiming that the quad-core M2 wont be priced at 1999 Yuan but will be priced in direct competition with Meizu’s MX 4-core at 2699 Yuan ($424) which is still cheaper than the K-touch quad-core we reported on here.
It seems most of the Xiaomi M2 leaks stem from the Foxconn factory where the Xiaomi M2 is being manufactured, perhaps all Foxconn’s security are to busy protecting the new iPhone?
