If you didn’t manage to get your Xiaomi Hongmi (red rice) in the first batch then you may be happy to learn the 2nd round of sales will kick off next week.
There is a pretty good chance you haven’t already got your hands on a Xiaomi Hongmi aka Red Rice already as the phone is currently only available in China and the first batch of 100,000 units sold in a record 90 seconds!
Still if you do have your eyes set on this budget phone with MIUI V5 then your next chance will be on August 27th when Xiaomi will release 50,000 Hongmi phones at 12:00 noon.
The Hongmi is the most affordable Xiaomi to date what’s more the 799 Yuan phone is also one of the largest Xiaomi phones available, the first to use a Meidatek chip, get dual-sim support and have an SD card slot! Top all this off with a Samsung 8 mega-pixel rear camera and the very user friendly and customisable MIUI V5 and it’s easy to see why the new Xiaomi is selling so well!
