TENAA leaks reveal the latest Xiaomi weapon in ongoing Xiaomi Meizu wars

xiaomi mi4

Xiaomi have not taken the launch of the Meizu MX4 well. The 1799 Yuan Meizu has seriously blindsided the Beijing phone maker who look set to retaliate with a lower cost version of the Xiaomi Mi4.

This is not the first time a rival phone maker has taken it upon themselves to release a phone that targets Xiaomi customers. Huawei, IUNI and OnePlus have all launched 1999 Yuan smartphones in China, but it wasn’t until Meizu released the 1799 Yuan MX4 that Xiaomi really got pissed.

Since the release the 2 companies have been bickering via Weibo and other Chinese social media, and rumours surrounding the two companies suggest they will both have new products launching very soon.

For Xiaomi this could mean a new low-cost version of the Xiaomi Mi4 which was leaked in TENAA documents earlier today. This new version of the Mi4 shows just 2GB RAM and 16GB memory, compared to the standard Mi4’s 3GB RAM and 32GB. Other hardware remains unchanged including the 5-inch display, LTE support and the all important Snapdragon 801 processor. The small changes to memory will still allow the Mi4 to perform very well, but at a lower retail price that some are suggesting could be just 1799 Yuan!

Gizchina News of the week

In other news there is a rumour that Xiaomi could be launching an Ultimate version of the Xiaomi Redmi phone. The new Redmi is though to get a 5.5-inch 1080 display, 2GB RAM, 16GB memory, 5 mega-pixel front camera, 13 mega-pixel rear, MIUI 6 and either a Snapdragon 615 or Mediatek MT6595 octacore processor.

Meizu are not down and out yet though. The companies CEO and founder, Jack Wong, has confirmed there will be at least 3 more device coming from his company this year. A Meizu MX4 Pro and Meizu MX4 Mini are believed to be just two of them.

    mi4 standard is 16gb too, then goes to 64gb, i think the 2gb ram hurts the mx4 too much, i wouldnt held back if it had 3gb after your review, now i am waiting for either mi4 lte or mx4 with 3-4gb(premium)

      Yea. The unreleased 64gb version might shoot up price about 50-100$ when released and Xiaomi find hard to stay on the price battle.

      This new version only basically reduces the ram and adds LTE, which was not on the first version of Mi4. I wonder maybe they are releasing it for China network exclusive also. Either way, Xiaomi finding it hard to stay on the price battle. Meizu on the other hand looks laid back and confident.

    Snapdragon 615 would not be worth it in anything above 999CNY from Xiaomi. It’s just quad A53 with another 4 cores clocked lower, good enough for an update but not a price hike.

    Its Xiaomi’s fault for not releasing the FDD lte model or sell outside of china. They have pretty much denied access to half the chinese customers and europe.

    I’d still rather have the MX4 just because of looks alone. Xiaomi dropped the ball when they decided to release a phone (the Mi4) which borrows design cues from the iPhone4/5 only to have Apple release a whole new redesigned iPhone 6 less than 2 months later which the MX4 closely imitates. The MX4 looks like much more premium built phone while the Mi4’s cheap Hongmi-style back cover isn’t helping.

    Interested with MX4 Mini, hope it 4.7″ device

      yes, that would be nice but it would be fantastic if the mini version would have the same specs as the normal mx4.

    Like a chess game.
    But meizu still has another one move with a lower end device, and the probable upgrade of mx3.
    Also the price of the black 64gb mi4 and the lack of FDD 4g are wrong moves on the table.

    meizu always make buggy phone. they can not solve firmware issue and they make new model. I am sure user of MX3 will never buy MX4 or advice some one to buy meizu
