Remember the previous blog post stating that Xiaomi is coming to Malaysia? After lots and lots of teasing and give-away contest in their Malaysian Facebook page, Xiaomi has finally announced their first phone in Malaysia, Mi 3. Mi 3 is priced at RM889, which is a crazy low price in my opinion for that excellent hardware. Before this you can get Mi 3 from the Internet at around RM1200, which is already a good price. The phone will be available starting 20th May 2014.
Mi 3 is actually their 2013 flagship phone and the specs are really top of the class that time and it is rumoured that they will launched the new iteration, Mi 3s on their event in Beijing on 15 May. Mi 3s will be mostly likely consist of hardware updates such as upgrading to Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 chipset, adding LTE and the newest Android version (4.4.2) which most likely do not matter to normal users.
Even though the launching of new Mi 3s is around the corner, Mi 3 is still a very powerful phone and the hardware can still carry you for a few years. If you are searching for a phone below RM1000, this would be a very wise choice if LTE is not a must-have for you. The full specifications is shown below:
