Xiaomi M2a has 4.5-inch 720 display, Snapdragon 600 and NFC for $241!

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).

Gizchina News of the week

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.

      Overpriced? I guess you are comparing it to the MTK phones… They use a very cheap processor while xiaomi use the 2x times better Snapdragon 600 processors with much higher quality and stability with much better GPU. Dont look at just cores and frequensies and HD screens, alot of these chinese phones doesnt even have NFC and almost have the cheapest made screens on earth with high resolution, you should know that much more than resolution and viewing angles are important. At last the darability between cheap other branded chinese phones and xiaomi phones are uncomparable 🙂

        i agree they’re better than most but it’s damn hard to buy one, and trust a reseller that won’t sell you a knock-off instead
