Xiaomi Phone 2 announced - the first with quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro tops Quadrant, is just $310

The specs are literally breathtaking, as the Xiaomi Phone 2 indeed utilizes the rumored quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro APQ8064 chipset, which is so powerful, that it is actually intended for tablet use. The guys behind the popular MIUI ROMs didn't stop here though - they slapped a 720p 4.3" IPS-LCD display, and added 2GB of RAM to ensure Android 4.1 Jelly Bean is running smooth with many apps loaded in the background...

T-Mobile doesn't use LTE, they use HSPA+

correct. Tmobile uses the 1700 band for 4g HSPA+, which is why its "left out". However, Tmobile is refarming all of their 1900 edge to HSPA+, so its not really left out. Some markets have made the transition already and some havent.. but supposedly its all gonna be done by christmas. That said....., hubba hubba to the specs sheet AND pricing. :)

What I don't get is how a 2 year old company with, that probably isn't even the biggest in China can beat companies like LG, Samsung, and HTC to the punch with this new cpu. I'm also a little interested in the type of that 3000mAh battery

How I wish Sony comes up with a high-end phone of specs like these! If it ever happens in the near future, it's going to be LEGENDARY!

Specs and JB are awesome but what about UI fluidity, physical build quality, after sales service and marketing. No point in showing off the best phone if it can't get to the people.

Time to hit up the chinese for my next AT&T phone. Screw LTE I will take the HSPA+ with the better coverage and in building support anyday.

HOLY SHENANIGANS. Quad S4 Pro, 2 GB RAM, an HD display, and a huge 3,000 mAh battery, with JB out of the box? This is like... The phone of dreams. What more could you ask for, other than a different custom UI? GSM users around the world will be happy... These guys should come to the US. You know... For science.

I dont think it will come to the US officially.. ever. MIUI is a Chinese rip off of iOS look... like severely. Anyone that thinks samsung copied iOS's "look" has never seen MIUI. I think it still has the apple logo in it somewhere.. lol Apple would take them to task like crazy. If they leave the bootloader open, I can see this being a very popular imported modders phone though.

If the frequencies of the HSPA+ in the phone are compatible with the ones in the USA you´ll be probably right. Add Meizu MX to the iPhone rip offs ("Meizu's goal was clearly to emulate the iPhone experience and we should say they did a pretty good job of it", quote from gsmarena) And thanks for the correction about the T-Mobile networks.

The software can be tweaked easily, how about stock JB?

Apple might have a case against them for impersonating the Steve Jobs look. Couldn't help but laugh looking at the dude standing in front of the mega screen sporting the jeans and black shirt. Should have just gone all the way and stepped out with a turtleneck.
