Xiaomi Mi-Two will come with MIUI V4.0 and here's what it looks like
If you’ve missed the Xiaomi Phone 2, or Mi-Two, announcement last week, you’d better catch up quick - coming in October to China first is one of the hottest devices you can imagine. The Mi-Two is equipped with a quad-core Snapdragon S4 chip, the latest Adreno 320 graphics and a kick-ass 8-megapixel camera. It will probably be the first phone in the world with such capable hardware and all of that for only around $310, nearly half the price of competitors.

What’s probably equally interesting about the Xiaomi Mi-Two and the Xiaomi phones in general is that they run with Android’s MIUI ROM. Actually, the MIUI ROM is one of the most popular and interesting attempts to change the look and feel of Android. The latest version of it, MIUI 4.0 is what will end up on the Xiaomi Mi-Two, and it’s offering some really impressive features. Check them all out in the video below.

Already itching to pre-order the Mi-Two phone? The Xiaomi Phone 2 might actually come to western markets in 2013, but if you really can’t wait, you can go on and pre-order it now for a bit more at various online etailers.

i like the idea of the custom rom thing... but I really do hope OEMs start selling stock Android devices and make the skin downloadable in the market or maybe an option to turn it off. Cool though, I'm starting to like China phones but I still won't buy because of lack of support.

Instead of trading it wait for MIUI to be ported to it. If its not already it should be soon, its been a pretty popular rom floating around for a while now.

WOW. . . Dang it, I now so want to have that king of cutom ROM. . .

Boy, I hope this will put pressure on big OEMs to make top phones more affordable. A powerful tablet like N7 sells for 200 bucks and GS3 costs some 700, that's not right.

Xiaomi is using the first ever quadcore snapdragon S4 which is a great achievement. I doubt even Nokia will anounce a quadcore phone recently even though they are working with Microsoft and Qualcomm so closely. The phone is great for the price. 99% chance that this phone will not be released in India, badluck.

99% chance that its china only. Miezu is a chinese only manufacturer for the most part.

No way, Xiao Mi is at a stage of brand building and that's why it is so aggressive. It's ambitious and US and Europe presence is a must for them.

umm.. no Miezu is a Chinese company that deals with china. Their presence outside of china is little to none. MIUI phones would NEVER make it to the states as retail phones. Apple would have a field day with them. It is a purpose built iOS replica. They also sold the first Exynos 4412 phone like 3 months before Samsung unveiled the SGS3. Anyone hear of them since? No? Thats because they are pretty much China only.

2 articles on a phone NOT A SINGLE reader of this site will ever see.. wow. Yea, the specs are awesome but your just getting people worked up over nothing. MIUI rom is a Chinese knock off of iOS. they go out of their way to look like iOS. I find it bland and boring really.

Problems with software can be fixed easily, but the phone's hardware is stunning and the price is awesome.

23. remixfa

Posts: 14605; Member since: Dec 19, 2008

im not disagreeing with that at all. The specs are dream worthy. That doesnt mean you or anyone else here will ever be able to buy one.. That is my point. Might as well be showing pictures of thanksgiving feasts to starving people that have no hope of ever seeing that feast.. same effect.

According to their own website, they only ship to China. Good luck. http://www.xiaomi.com/service/transfer

Or may be you are just understimating the number of arabs, chinese, indians and eropeans that read this site.

Would it be simpler with stock Android?

15. XPERIA-KNIGHT unregistered

Just Hope that UI is good and works like normal android devices like what we have now (HTC GS3 Sony etc......

I don't see why I shouldn't buy this instead of Galaxy S3

I don't know guys, if they release it with stock android I am sure it would be a different story. The first version had support for dual boot.. maybe they can just install the stock android and let the Rom community take care of the people that want the miui experience. Also eBay is your friend....hahaha... For sure if they ever were to start selling the phone in the US they would charge alot more because they would have to pay import fees and such...
