With just a few weeks until the WCDMA version of the Snapdragon 800 Xiaomi Mi3 goes on sale, rumours have started circling that a ‘youth’ version of the phone may also be offered with S600 chipset!
Xiaomi kicked off the idea of offering a ‘youth’ version of it’s flagship phone a few years ago with the launch of the M1 Youth. Basically the idea is to take the flagship model, replace a few of the parts with lower spec/cheaper alternatives and offer it at a slightly lower price.
Rumours today suggest the the Xiaomi Mi3 may spawn a ‘youth’ version which will be powered by a Snapdragon 600 chipset, there will likely be other differences too to help reduce the price but at the time of writing details are not known![ Source ]
