Updated with more photos as we now have internet!

Lei Jun has just launched the new flagship Xiaomi Mi3, available with either a quad-core Nvidia Tegra 4 processor of Qualcomm Snapdragon 800!

The Xiaomi launch event is still in full swing, but while the WIFI is working and Lei Jun is introducing the Xiaomi TV, I though I would post details of the new Mi3.

Full details will be posted later, but the highlights of the new phone include a 5-inch 1080 display, 13 mega-pixel rear camera with F2.2 aperture, 3050mAh battery, 128mps writable memory, 2GB RAM and a choice of either a Snapdragon 800 chip or Nvidia Tegra 4 processor (keeping everyone happy), NFC, 5Ghz WIFI etc.

Unsurprisingly the phone’s shape is the same as the Lumia style leaks and will be available in a range of colours including red, yellow, blue, pink and black. There will also be a smart cover style case available also in a range of bright colours.
