Xiaomi's cheap Leadcore powered phone to cost $80 and launch in February

Xiaomi has gone beyond the usual price cutting that it employs for its entry-level phones, using a quad-core 1.6GHz Leadcore LC1860C chip. That is paired with the Mali T628 GPU. Looks-wise, the unnamed device resembles the Xiaomi Redmi 2, although the latter is driven by a 64-bit quad-core 1.2GHz Snapdragon 410 CPU and the Adreno 306 GPU.
Certainly Xiaomi finds itself in the enviable position of catching quite a buzz at the top-end of the market while still providing some decent products at the low-end. Xiaomi has made an investment in Leadcore which means that it has a supply of low priced chips at a price that will allow it to undercut many in this sector of the smartphone market.

$80 with an obvious contract.

You have to remember that the company is much larger now. Last year alone it tripled sales. Xiaomi has a great balanced lineup, perhaps the most balanced in the industry! Regards, Alan F.

they should release different handsets but it depends how well they target new markets, as for now they are limited to only few regions( yes they are one of biggest one's) and kind of pricing there mi note has include its delivery charges to some other part of the world from a re-seller and it is either equal to Note 3 pricing or little up than that, I own a xiaomi device and it was actually to test once and with my previous experience i decided that i am going to prefer an old version from more reliable companies under warranty in my region i.e. Note 3, xperia z2, lg g3(2GB model), S5 they are all placed at same price as the Mi note for out side china delivery from resellers and ofcourse no warranty
