China Mobile starts accepting Xiaomi Red Rice Pre-orders ahead of launch


Someone at China Mobile in Guangzhou has jumped the gun a little and are already advertising pre-orders for the 999 Yuan Xiaomi Red Rice.

Xiaomi have yet to launch the entry-level Red Rice, currently the worse kept secret in the Chinese communications market, but overwhelming evidence, leaked photos and network license details and not a pre-order through the official China Mobile website point to the phone coming soon.

Today’s leak confirms some of the previous details including support for TD-SCDMA, a quad-core MT6589T chipset, 1GB RAM, MIUI V5 and a 999 Yuan price tag. The launch of the phone could be as early as the end of July or mid August at the latest.

    Darn that TD-SCDMA, it just won’t work around here.

    Hi Andi, What would you recommend: Xiaomi Mi2S or Vivo Xplay?

    Hi, Andi! What would you recommend: Xiaomi Red Rice, FAEA F1 or Vowney V5 Pro?

    • Hmm interesting choices. As I have not used the Red Rice yet I cant really comment so it would have to be the FAEA, with that said though I do believe the new Xiaomi is going to be just as good as the current phones and with the MT6589T CPU it will be a much more powerful phone than the FAEA

    Are you guys kidding me? Xiaomi website says the phone sells for 799 Yuan. Why would you guys put it up for 999 Yuan?
