Xiaomi's upcoming budget smartphone leaked by China Mobile executive; specs and photo included

According to the China Mobile executive, this device will feature a 4.7-inch screen with a resolution of 720 x 1280. Powering the handset will be a quad-core Lead Core LCI LC1860C CPU (say that five times fast) with the Mali T628 GPU crunching graphics. 1GB of RAM is inside and there is 8GB of native storage. Despite the budget tag, a 13MP snapper is on back and there is support for 4G LTE Cat.4 which will allow a maximum download speed of 150Mbps. Previous rumors about this model add a 2MP front-facing camera, microSD slot and Android 4.4.4 pre-installed.
As far as pricing is concerned, we have to turn to another executive. Xiaomi CEO Lei Jun recently stated that the company will not release a phone priced as low as $64 USD. So we do have a floor when it comes to how much this budget model will cost. What we don't have is a possible date for the unveiling of this handset, or a name for it.
Thanks for the tip!
