Xiaomi to release MI-2 MIUI phone in October, will we ever see it?

If ever there was a phone I would love to get my hands on it is the Xiaomi MI-2 MIUI Phone or the MI-1 even.

So what on earth are they? Well 2 years ago Xiaomi started out making Android roms for the community and they eventually decided to start making phones. There is just one slight problem for us here in the UK, Xiaomi are based in China and they haven’t really managed to set up an importer and retailers in the UK. Another problem was that they didn’t make many.


Well yesterday morning they announced their new phone the MI-2 and boy is it a great looking device. Here is some of the artwork for the MI-2.

      The price is meant to be reasonable. But importing will be costly.

    This would so be my next phone if I could get one in the UK without HMRC screwing the life out of me!

      Rumours are that they want to find some European retail partners to sell them. Fingers crossed
