Despite the fact many Xiaomi fans still can’t buy the Xiaomi M2 for love nor money, the Beijing based phone maker are already working on the details of its successor the Xiaomi M3!
Early reports surrounding the Xiaomi M3, which will likely launch mid 2013, suggested that the latest phone would incorporate an 8-core CPU, however it seems that those reports were blown out of preportion.
Gizchina News of the week
Updated rumours now suggest the Xiaomi M3 will come equipped with Nvidia’s latest quad-core chip, the Tegra 4 (which has yet to be officially announced, but is thought to be an LTE chip capable of running at between 1.8 – 2.0Ghz. Along with details of the CPU, it is also rumored the new M3 will get a larger 4.5-inch display from JDI (Japan Display Corporation) which will likely have a stunning DPI.
From our own knownledge of the Xiaomi M2 and we also expect a 12+ mega-pixel rear camera, and around 2-2.5GB RAM as well as the latest version of MIUI (possibly 4.2).[ Source ]
what abt the pricing details and battery details
I find hilarious this practice of introducing new vaporware products, while they are unable to meet deadlines on existing product. Instead of non-existent M3, Xiaomi should leak apology to its customers waiting for non-existent M2. First Chinese company that learns how to set proper and realistic launch date, and meet demand on that date, will get lot of traction, among competition that have no clue whatsoever. Another example is Ainol, which presented like 3 new tablets for November and upgrade to 4.1 for existing tablets, but NOTHING of this materialized until now (December). 🙂 Jiayu, etc.,…:-)))
Well, if you want to believe the accusations flying around, it’s not that they aren’t setting a realistic launch date or are unable to meet demand…it’s they secretly cannot meet the demand because of the huge financial loss of selling hundreds of thousands (millions?) of phones at an impossible price.
The Oppo Find 5 (same processor package as Mi2) is $500 in USA where prices are typically lower. The Mi2 is about $320 in China where taxes on electronics are 17%. OK, not a completely equal comparison but it’s a start.
How does Xiaomi do it? They can’t…until prices for their components drop, which is why they only release smaller lots of the Mi2 to keep customers from rioting. And that’s why it’s still hard to get the older Mi1S..unless you buy it subsidized from one of the telcos in China. No problem there.
Of course all of that is speculation. Good speculation, but still speculation.
ermmm maybe not because the phone exists?
xiami is missing the point – their devices cannot make competition with brands with equal ot higher price
Xiaomi is a not reliable brand, playing with customers like they do is unacceptable, giving numbers that everybody knows are false… As you said the x2 is not even available but they clamed to have it released at the end of october??? Give me a break!!
To be honest, i hope they will fail and disappear, they don’t belong in this industry.
bitch please, i got the m2 1 month ago, the first pre order was october 30 i remember… and i got the phone delivered like 8 days after, they were slow sending the phones..
in my box it says my phone was produced on nov 6 and i got it on nov 7 so you go figure
i hope they will fail !!! i will never waite for xiaomi ever again !!!!!!!
you should disappear from earth.
In all seriousness, every idiot should be thankful that brands like this will more than likely dominate the market in the future due to the fact that they deliver the performance (if not better) at a slash of the price of big-game brands.
