This new phone is believed to be a new version of the Xiaomi Mi3 named the Mi3S. This new phone is believed to have support for 4G LTE networks, more memory and updated camera modules both front and rear. In addition to the Mi3S there could also be 2 new Xiaomi Redrice models launched on 9th April with the top end model sporting an octacore processor.

As always the Mi3S should cost 1999 Yuan for the base model and the Redrice phones should start at 799 Yuan. China will be getting these devices first with launches in Singapore, Taiwan and Hong Kong occurring after.

      As far as I know: Hongkong is a city in China, but has it’s own laws, coins and perhaps even a own passport (not sure about the last thing).

        thats just plain racism dude …

        • Hong Kong is a special zone of China. It is classed as a Chinese city, however Chinese citizens (from most parts of China) still need a visa to enter there. Chinese and Hong Kong citizens have different passports, the money is different, the language is different enough that my wife uses English there when we visit, and they drive on the left. Ask a Chinese person if Hong Kong is part of China and they say yes, ask a Hong Kong person the same and they will say no.
