It looks like the up and coming Chinese manufacturer, Xiaomi Tech, has its plate full as rumor has it that the company is working on at least three new devices: the flagship Xiaomi Mi3, the affordable but still powerful Red Rice smartphone and the budget priced (and not so budget spec’d) MiPad tablet.
Well, today it looks like all three aforementioned devices have been caught on camera.
Let’s take a look.
As you can see in the first pic, the Xiaomi Tablet has been placed next to the iPad Mini, in order for us to figure out that its dimensions will be similar. The source of the pics says that the tablet has a 7 inch screen, has a shell made out of polycarbonate and will come in a variety of configurations. It also reconfirms earlier rumors about the tablet’s price tag – 999 Yuan (roughly $160).
Next we have the Xiaomi Red Rice placed next to what is claimed to be the Xiaomi Mi3. Since the Xiaomi Red Rice is supposed to arrive with a 4.7 inch screen, this confirms earlier rumors claiming that the Mi3 will sport a bigger than 5-inch display.
Let’s see what else has been rumored about these three devices.
-quad core Mediatek MT8125 CPU
-13MP camera (capable of recording video in 1080p)
-Release Date: August 16
-1.8GHz Nvidia Tegra 4 CPU
-1080p display (larger than 5 inches)
-Release Date: this summer, probably at the same time with the tablet
Xiaomi Red Rice:
-4.7 inch 720p display
-1.2GHz dual core processor
-1GB of RAM
-8MP rear-facing camera
-2MP front-facing shooter
-2000 mAh battery
-MIUIv5 (Xiaomi’s own skinned version of Android)
-Price:799 Yuan (roughly $130)
So what do you think? Since these devices are not likely to arrive in Western markets would you be willing to import one? What do you think of the price/quality ratio? Let us know in the comments section.
