Xiaomi said to be working on $50 Android smartphone!

Xiaomi’s Hongmi might be one of the better value phones on the market but even that $130 phone is starting to look pricey when compared to the JiaYu F1, but Xiaomi aren’t giving up yet and are believed to be working on a $50 phone!

Gizchina News of the week

Xiaomi are aiming to expand throughout Asia and a low cost phone could be just what the company needs to break in to emerging markets. Obviously, details of the $50 Xiaomi haven’t been made public yet, but we can guess the phone will be running one of Mediatek entrylevel quad-core MT6582 chipsets, around 1GB RAM and possibly a 4.5-inch display.

When Xiaomi plan to launch is also a mystery, but we will keep you updated with all the latest news!

    i highly doubt it will have 1gb and 4.5″ considering jaiyu’s phone is 512mb and 4″ 🙁

      A 50 dollar phone with MTK 6582, and 1 GB of RAM? That sounds unbelievable. All sub-100 US$ smartphones usually sport a slow dual-core (maybe 6572) and low-resolution screens. If Xiaomi can really pull this off (this year, not in 15 years), then hats off to them 🙂

    Next time they will announce hexadeca-core phone with dual 48MP camera, 32GB RAM, 16TB storage and king kong glass for only $100… yet you have to preorder 15 years in advance.
