Rumor: Successor to Xiaomi Mi 3 on the Way

14 Apr

A recent post from Chinese blog site, MyDrives, suggests that we might see the successor to Xiaomi’s widely popular “Mi 3” a lot sooner than anticipated.

As stated in the translated version of the aforementioned report…

“The upgraded version of Xiaomi’s Mi 3, called the “Mi 3S,” will likely make an appearance as early as the end of this month or in early May…From what has been revealed so far, we expect the new device to employ a lot more metal in its design, come with 4G/LTE functionality, and sport an extremely slim body.”

Other potential features of the new Xiaomi phone that can be expected include a 5 inch 1080 HD display, Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 801 processor, 8MP and 13MP front and back cameras, respectively, and a generous 1999 RMB price tag.
