$160 Xiaomi Red Rice Antutu show 1.5Ghz MT6589T processor, could launch today!

Xiaomi are rumoured to be launching a new device at 10am this morning, but will it be the Xiaomi Smart TV or the Mediatek powered Xiaomi Red Rice phone!

The Xiaomi Red Rice Android phone has shown up in various leaks, and has even been spotted at China’s Ministry of Communication in dual-core and quad-core variants! If these Antutu screen shots are to be believe though the Red Rice will be a quad-core phone, with an entry-level price tag!

Gizchina News of the week

From the Antutu benchmarks we can see the phone is named the HM2013022 and is manufactured by Xiaomi. The start of that model number ‘HM’ actually fits the Chinese Pinyin name for ‘Red Rice’ (Hóng mǐ). We can also see the new phone sports a 1.5Ghz quad-core Mediatek MT6589 processor, in this case the MT6589T version with higher clock speed and faster GPU, a 720 x 1280 display, 1GB RAM, 8 mega-pixel rear camera and 1.2 mega-pixel front.

    low score, with the mtk turbo version and an Hd display it shoudl score around 16k, not 14k (like the jiayu)
    I know that the cpu is not the only thing that contributes to the score, but still, that is a low score

    It would be nice to see you include a table of other features the phones have such as OTG, MHL, NFC, Battery size, etc, as they make comparing the phones much easier. These are key features people look for when buying phones, this info will help people make an informed choice, there are so many phones on the market now, it is hard to keep track of who has what features.
