Bonkers Xiaomi Mi3 specs are just too awesome!

Xiaomi have already proven what they can accomplish when faced with the task of producing a high-performance low-cost phone, but we’re not convinced they can build an Mi3 with these bonkers specs for $320!

Xiaomi have managed to launch two impressive flagship phones with the easy on the wallet price tag of just 1999 Yuan ($320). The original M1 managed to be one of the cheapest dual-core phones, while the current M2 has hardware device double the price don’t have.

So to say we have high expectation for the Xiaomi Mi3 would be a understatment!

One Xiaomi fan has taken it upon themselves to work out just what the Mi3 will look like and even suggest the hardware which can be built-in while keeping prices down to the magical 1999 Yuan mark.

Gizchina News of the week

What they have come up with is a bonkers ‘Monster phone’ with an 8-core 1.8ghz processor, 4.5-inch Amoled 1920 x 1080 display. 5.1mm body, 150GB built-in memory, 16GB RAM, 12 mega-pixel F/1.2 rear camera with dual-LED flash and Miui 5.0.

A little far fetched, but there are certainly some details which could make it in to the next phone. Xiaomi already acknowledged they had tested a 12 mega-pixel camera but weren’t impressed with the results for the M2, Miui 5.0 seems possible and an 8-core CPU is very likely should Xiaomi team up with Samsung this year.

Nice specs, and we imagine the Mi3 will get at least some of them, but don’t be expecting a monster phone like this for 1999 Yuan anytime this year.

Previous HTC M7 will be available on AT&T, Sprint and T-Mobile at launch
Next Beidou M1 will be a quad-core Qualcomm phone for just $112

      You miss the point a bit….it’s not that Xiaomi can’t fulfill their orders; it’s that Xiaomi can’t fulfill their orders at the advertised 1999 RMB price. That’s what highly unethical about the company’s marketing.

      Agree! Can’t even buy the Mi2 when it was launched 2 months ago. Waited for a long time for new stock but can’t find them or resellers were jacking up the price exorbitantly. What’s worst is when stocks were back up on their site, they don’t sell to international customers.

      Gave up and bought a different Android phone. Very happy with my purchase.

      F@#k! Xiaomi.

        If you are in China it is very easy to buy an Mi2. Just head to your local phone market and buy one. Prices will be high now as Chinese New Year is just days away, but they will come down again in a few weeks.

    I’m not sure why do you even bother reporting so obviously fake / idiotic specs, even if fan-made.

    OMG I could play 10000 angry birds concurrently with 16GB of ram!!!1!

    Personally I believe this will be more reasonable specs for mi3 or any affordable mid-end phone under 2000RMB later half of 2013.

    8-cores CPU
    4GB RAM
    likely 32GB ROM
    1920×1080 4.5-5″ display
    12-13MP f1.8-2.0 camera
    2800-3000+mah battery
    Thickness around 8-9mm
    2-3mm bezel
    Metallic housing seems to be the “in” trend for 2013.

    I’d like to know if until June 2013, there will be chinese android phones with these features:
    – A screen between 4.3″ and 5.5″ with at least a 720P resolution,
    – Ram of 2Gb (for android 5.0 Key Lime Pime which requires this amount of ram),
    – Dual / Quad core processor (rockchip 3188 or Snapdragon; are the mediatek ones as powerful as the RK or Snapdragon models ?) with fast CGU (at least faster than Mali 400),
    – Compatible with 4G,
    – GPS,
    – Good WIFI chipset,
    – Price between 200 and 350 US$

    If some models are already announced, can you send me the list to ?

    Thanks 🙂

      I think the words ‘fan made’ are in their somewhere 😉

    Don’t forget that RAM is using battery power too, and, as oppose to CPU, there is no way to turn unused parts of RAM off. It must be always completely ON, at full speed, all the time. So, putting 16GB RAM to phone would be quite stupid idea, unless technology gets to sub-10nm size, and there is any use for that amount of RAM, which will not be the case within next 3 years.
