Redmi 1S, offers specs in the same ballpark, and it costs about $150.Judging by the published spec-sheet, the $65 phone itself could feature a 720p display and 1GB RAM, which is not bad at all considering the price. Although the leaked material doesn't look especially convincing and we can't say for sure whether it is the $65 Xiaomi phone in the picture, it will be nice if more low-end smartphones adopt similar, or possibly better hardware standards down the road.

Purely awesome great specs for great price, but Google still needs to optimize for the low end. There are a lot of Chinese phones with low specs in the Android world which would probably run Windows Phone great. Low end processor like MediaTek should be fine to run Android smoothly, but don't. Sad to say Windows Phone still is king in that department. Something like the Lumia 520 which has only 512mb ram dual core processor and an antutu of around 7000 outperforms phones with quad core processors 1gb ram and antutu of 17000+.

I wonder if it will function as well as other Xiaomi phones in their ecosystem. I read a great article on the financial times, "chinese tech: selling to the next billion," that really painted Xiaomi's product offerings and future strategy around their ecosystem. Every new product is another test to see how they measure up to their goals.
