Xiaomi M1s Preorder round 2 begin tomorrow!

Did you order a JiaYu G3 yet? No! Then wait! As tomorrow is the second round of Xiaomi M1s preorders with Xiaomi offering 200,000 M1s phones to those hoping to secure one!

The Xiaomi M1s is the replacement for the Xiaomi M1 and was launched alongside the all new quad-core Xiaomi M2 last month.

Although the M1s shares a similar design to the original Xiaomi phone, the M1s is actually an all new beast and is worth upgrading to if you do have the older M1.

The M1s features an all new 1.7Ghz dual-core Qualcomm CPU, 1GB RAM, and a really fantastic 8 mega-pixel rear camera along with a front camera for video calls. Add to this the fact the M1s also gets Android Jelly Bean in the form of the latest version of MIUI complete with voice assistant and you can see the new Xiaomi is an amazing phone!

If you want to get hold of the M1s you will have to preorder and enter a ‘lottery’, along with 200,000 other hopeful Xiaomi fans tomorrow, 6th September 2012,  to try to ‘win’ a chance to buy the new phone. Do bear in mind however that the last batch of 200,000 M1s were complete sold out in only a matter of hours last month!

So which will you buy? The Xiaomi M1s or the JiaYu G3?

You can preorder the Xiaomi M1s direct from Xiaomi here!

Thanks to Fel for the tip!

    mind that the lottery is only open to those based here in China as far i can see.
    Word of mouth goes that xiaomi will not release it globally and if you miss out on the lottery, China Unicom will offer them in some time.

    G3 or mi1s? easy, xiaomi actually delivers and MIUI is awesome. Jiayu as of yet has very little in terms of post/pre sales..

    Great work Andi, am looking into that Goophone which u mentioned..

      @Fel cheers for the tip mate! I’m actually going to try and get both (JiaYu as a review unit, Xiaomi as a personal phone). I agree Xiaomi are awesome I just wish they would prepare enough stock for a proper launch :p

    Yap Andi, the Xiaomi M1 is like a ghost phone. Waited for it and it was and still is always sold out. Sometimes i think the shortage is intentional. good luck to anyone trying to buy it. I stopped bothering a long time ago and am sure the whole thing will be repeated once the M2 is out. Would much rather wait on the G3 as it looks way more realistic to buy.

      @Steve It’s still hard to get the original M1… If things continue the M3 will be out before we can just walk into a store and pick up an M1s or M2!

    Hi Andy,

    I’m interesting by this phone. And also by the jiayu g3. But it really seems that it will be really difficult to get one… What do you think?
    The zopo zp300 field+ look also good….
    Wich phone will be “catchable” for us, international buyers (i’m in France) ?

    • September 6, 2012

      @Jophilo it all depends on how fast you want your phone. If you can wait a while you should be able to get any of the phones you mentioned, but if you want something now get the Zopo. The ZP300 is a great phone too!

    @Jophilo, grab the Samsung Galaxy S3 (it’s possible to buy new one for less than 400 EUR) and forget about that ‘miracle from China’.

    @alexey: i don’t want the old model. I think i’ll wait a little bit and if i can’t get the jiayu g3 or the m1s i’ll go for the zp300+.
