    The TV is way too much, the Redmi 2A is a 1S in disguise but it should help sales (as opposed to just selling the 1S at 599CNY).
    The pink Note is hilarious, they really need to grow up before going outside China. Making a pink version to target women is insulting and sexist and wouldn’t fly in the west (see the recent mess in the UK with the Labour Party pink political mini-bus https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2sWRXr2Yu9g ).
    And don’t forget the Mi4 price cut and the addition of the 2GB RAM version.

      It should be faster than the Redmi 1S and Redmi 2.

        The Leadcore SoC is quad A7 at 1.5GHz so no.

          Redmi 2 is a Snapdragon 410 @1,2 GHz, Redmi 1S Snapdragon 400 @1,6GHz. But wait until we see some comparisons with the 1S and 2.

            There is nothing to wait for, no room for surprises.
            The Redmi 2 is too slow as it is, Xiaomi is just spamming.

      Hahaha.. Yes.. Such a terrible move from Xiaomi. It starts with pink phones but what wil be next? No right to vote? Bigger wage gap between man snd woman? I think all western woman should go in the streets and burn all the pink 😀 😀

      Anyways. Lucky for us. Asian woman are still normal.

      Btw. Now i understand why Xiaomi didnt rease black versiom of Mi 4 and Mi Note. Theyre worried of big unrest in Africa and USA 😀

    Hi Andi, do you have an idea regarding a possible release date for the Xiaomi MI4 2GB version for international buyers? Any news regarding the IUNI U3 MINI? the Jiayu S4?

    I am really tempted to get the Nubia Z9 Mini but it is sold around 280€. Is it worth to buy it at that cost?

      well the 55 inch 4k tv for 799$ is quite nice if you ask me, if it’s available internationally it’ll sell well.

        If it isn’t any trouble, can you kindly point me to some AliExpress sellers who are selling
        genuine Chinese phones. I haven’t ordered from Aliexpress, so it will be
        very helpful if you can point me to some genuine seller over there for
        the phones you have purchased(Xiaomi, Meizu, Jiayu, Zenfone, etc.)

        One of my friends ordered a phone from AlieXpress and found out it was fake, which is why I am asking for any suggestion about alixpress.

          can recommend this shop: http://www.aliexpress.com/store/1153179
          bought mi4 there in november, no problems and tax free for europe!!!
          also, if you ask seller, you can get even 5 usd off probably. 🙂
