While rumour has it that Xiaomi might be unveiling the Mi 4 this coming 22 July, something on PhoneArena.com caught my attention as I was doing some research on the Mi 3, a phone which I am going to review soon.
It is quite known that Chinese beliefs do play a huge role in businesses, and hence why I was not so optimistic when I heard the next flagship smartphone from Xiaomi would be called the Mi4.
Interestingly, PhoneArena seems convinced that Xiaomi is set to reveal the Mi 3S (which seems more practical because the number 4 is avoided) this July 22, with their site already spotting interesting details of the coming phone.
Those whom have just bought the Mi 3 would be disappointed to know that this new smartphone would be a definite upgrade from the Mi 3 with PhoneArena saying it comes with Android 4.4.2, a 1080 x 1920 pixels 5-inch screen, a 13-megapixel rear camera and a 8-megapixel front camera.
Other specifications which continue to wow include the use of a Quad core 2500 MHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor, a 3GB RAM, a 16GB internal memory with expansion memory slots, and of course the long overdue LTE feature. To top it off, Xiaomi has recently teased that they could be making the Mi 3S in metal.
If Xiaomi continues to offer the Mi 3S at the current price of the Mi 3 (which is RM769/USD240), you could expect this phone to conquer the world!
Irregardless however, this coming July 22nd would be interesting since the pricing of the new smartphone from Xiaomi would be the one thing everyone would be watching.
