Value-priced Xiaomi Redmi now available in white for China Mobile
The Xiaomi Hongmi, the value priced quad-core powered handset with a 4.7 inch, 720 x 1280 display, was originally launched in China for the equivalent of $130 USD. Rechristened the Redmi outside of China,  the phone is now available in white, to go along with the previously released black model. Under the hood of the device is a quad-core 1.5GHz MT6589 CPU from MediaTek. 1GB of RAM is on board with 4GB of native memory. A 32GB microSD slot is included, and the back and front cameras weigh in at 8MPand 1.2MP respectively. A 2000mAh cell powers the phone,and Android 4.2 is installed out of the box.

The white version of the phone is available in China only, at least for now. Speaking of which, the Xiaomi Redmi will initially just support the TD-SCDMA proprietary 3G pipeline, belonging to China Mobile.

When the original black version was offered with WCDMA connectivity for China Unicom back in November, 100,000 units sold in just 4 minutes. With sales like that, you can expect a white WCDMA version of the Xiaomi Redmi to be available in the not too distant future. The price of the white Xiaomi Redmi for China Mobile is 699 Yuan ($113 USD).
