11 October, 2013

It looks like Apple is not the only manufacturer which can sell its devices with a brisk pace. The Chinese manufacturer Xiaomi announced in its Weibo account that it moved 100,000 HongMi smartphones in only two minutes and five seconds.

Priced at 799 Yuan (approximately $131), the Xiaomi HongMi is among the cheapest quad-core smartphones available in China. It is powered by a MTK MT6589T chipset with 1.5GHz quad-core Cortex-A7 CPU.

The rest of the specs include a 4.7 720p display, a gig of RAM, 4GB of built-in memory, microSD card slot, and 8MP camera, complemented by a 1.3MP front-facing snapper. The HongMi boots Android 4.2 Jelly Bean.

The impressive sales achievement of the Xiaomi HongMi is yet another indication that the Chinese manufacturer means serious business. Earlier this year, Xiaomi lured Hugo Barra from Google to take the position of a Vice President.
