Xiaomi Mi3 won’t launch on August 16th after all

Over the past few months we have all been patiently expecting to see the launch of the Xiaomi Mi3 on August 16th, however this seems not to be the case!

New reports from Xiaomi themselves claim that their won’t by a launch festival held on August 16th as previously expected. Instead the flagship Mi3 is not hoped to be officially unveiled on 5th September.

Although this can’t really be seen as a launch delay as Xiaomi hadn’t actually made any promises, many do believe that the a delay in Snagdragon 800 processors is the real reason for the change in schedule and that with the delay Xiaomi have taken steps to include unto 3GB RAM and a Sharp IGZO screen on the phone.

Gizchina News of the week

So August 16th is the launch of the Mi3 after all (well according to the rumours), but we could still see the launch of the Xiaomi Purple Rice, aka the Xiaomi tablet on that date!

    Good news for Nubia, another month they have the best spec phone in this price range, and good news to me since I am glad I didn’t wait till August for a possible Mi3 reveal. I’m sure Xiaomi will give everyone something good, they will really need to make a splash with the next flagship phone if they want to keep making sales records. There is a lot of competition below them competing in their price market right now, even Google and Motorola are there now, at least in the US.

    Come on Xiaomi, don’t act like Jiayu !

    • August 13, 2013

      They really aren’t. JiaYu made promises as to when the G4 would launch and failed to deliver. Xiaomi haven’t even confirmed the Mi3 exists (although we all know it does)

        Well, I’m just annoyed cause I was waiting for 1 Month for it to Launch

    No point launching if it isn’t ready. Make it as close to perfection at this point in time as you can.
