You know how there’s a small tech-focused event going on these days in Berlin, Germany and called IFA? Everybody that’s somebody in the mobile business is there to impress us with “innovations” and “upgrades”, save for Xiaomi, the Chinese OEM that’s recently snatched Hugo Barra from Google.
Remember that crazy rumor about Xiaomi prepping an upper mid-range phone with 720p display, quad-core processor and $160 price tag? Well, it’s a rumor no more. And it gets better, as the Red Rice is reportedly set to go on sale for an incredible Yuan 799 ($130) after all.
Xiaomi, a Chinese gadget maker known more for their Android-based handsets, is working on a tablet dubbed ‘ZiMi’ (roughly means ‘Purple Rice’ in English).
Images of Chinese phone maker Xiaomi’s upcoming flagship, the Xiaomi Mi3 surface online. The successor to the Xiaomi Mi-2S is said to pack 3 GB of RAM and a 5.5-inch 1080p display.
Popular Chinese phone Xiaomi M1 receives a working build of CyanogenMod 10.1, brings Android 4.2.2 and stock Android UI to the party.
Who’s ready for a new round of juicy rumors starring probably the hottest smartphone manufacturer in all China, Xiaomi? Well, ready or not, here it comes – there reportedly is a tablet in the works over in Beijing, supposedly called Mi Pad.
