Clamshell Android powered phone by Xiaomi gets certified by TENAA; listing shows 8GB of RAM inside (UPDATE)
While we have no choice but to consider that amount of RAM to be a typo or mistake, the rest of the specs are more pedestrian. The clamshell is equipped with a 3.97-inch display carrying a 480 x 800 resolution. That works out to a pixel density of 235ppi. A quad-core 1.4GHz CPU is under the hood, with 16GB of internal storage. A microSD slot is on board for those seeking additional memory.
The TENAA listing reveals an 8MP rear-facing camera and a 2MP front-facing snapper, although the latter doesn't seem to show up well in the photographs. Android 4.4.4 is pre-installed with Xiaomi's clamshell UI running on top, and the phone does support 4G LTE connectivity.
Now that it has been certified by TENAA, we should see Xiaomi making this clamshell official soon. We expect the model will have limited availability.

UPDATE: According to another source, the clamshell certified by TENAA is actually produced by a new manufacturer called Rice, which has one previous handset certified by the agency. We thank Navdeep from Mobipicker for bringing this to our attention.
