Xiaomi Mi3 formally announced in Berlin with a low price tag

Xiaomi Mi3

Xiaomi has just launched the much awaited Mi3 smartphone, hot on the heels of the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 announcement yesterday. The Xiaomi Mi3 however is far apart from the Galaxy Note 3, in that it packs similar specs but a superior design and a very low price tag. The smartphone will be sold in 16 and 64GB variants, which is slightly odd but we’re not going to complain. The pricing is set at $327 for 16GB and $408 for the 64GB variant, which sounds too good to be true when you check out the hardware.

Onboard the Xiaomi Mi3 is a 5 inch 1080p display, 2GB of RAM, a Snapdragon 800 or Tegra 4 chip, a 13MP rear camera, 3,050 mAh battery and Android 4.2 Jelly Bean with a MIUI skin on top. Xiaomi is the company which snatched up Hugo Barra of Google very recently in a bid to globalize the company which has a limited reach now. So it goes without saying that the Mi3 will be a global smartphone and we can expect all major markets to get it soon, although the price might not be the same as listed in Xiaomi’s announcement.
