Remember remember the 5th of November, the day the WCDMA Xiaomi Hongmi will finally be listed!
Xiaomi’s Co-founder and CEO has been on Weibo again speaking about the China Unicom WCDMA version of the Xiaomi Hongmi. This time rather than vaguely stating that ‘Yes, it is coming’, Lei Jun has actually announced the launch date as 5th November!
So what does this mean to those outside China? Previously launched Xiaomi Hongmi phones only support China Mobiles 3G network making them pretty useless outside of China, but the WCDMA version will work on most European 3G networks!
The rest of the hardware remains the same so for 799 Yuan Chinese customers will get a 4.7-inch 720p display, 1GB RAM, 1.5Ghz Quad-core MT6589T processor, 8 mega-pixel Samsung camera and MIUI V5. Customers outside China can expect to pay more than Chinese customers and demand is going to be high!
