Xiaomi’s 3rd annual MIUI festival is just about to kick-off but news of their new phones has already leaked and now we have specification details of the new entry-level Xiaomi M2A.
The Xiaomi M2A will take the place of the Xiaomi M1S. It features a similar body design to the current Mi2 and new M2S, but with a few hardware differences to keep the cost down to a more affordable 1499 Yuan ($241).
That’s not to say this phone is an under performer though, as everything about the Xiaomi M2A looks spot on! Rather than a quad-core CPU, the M2A has a cheaper, but still very powerful, dual-core Snapdragon 600 processor running a 1.7Ghz. The phone is also rumoured to have an updated 8 mega-pixel rear camera, NFC, HIFI audio and MIUI V5.
The high light of the M2A though is the screen size which is oddly larger than the flagship Xiaomi M2S! The new M2A is said to have a 4.5-inch 720p display (326ppi) where as the Mi2 and M2S have a 4.3-inch 720 HD unit!
We’ll have to wait a few hours to confirm that these details are accurate.
