Xiaomi Hongmi 1s has been announced today as the successor to the price-revolutionary Hongmi, popularly known as Xiaomi Red Rice.
The Hongmi 1s still keeps the $130 pricing of it’s predecessor even though a lot of features has been upgraded. Take for example, Xiaomi went for a Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 chipset over the MediaTek processor on the first generation of the smartphone. The new smartphone has an Adreno 305 GPU, 8MP and 1.6MP rear and front cameras, 8GB storage and runs on Android 4.3 Jelly Bean.
Apart from the above, there are no other changes as the new Hongmi 1s still keeps the 4.7-inch HD screen, 1GB RAM, 2000mAh battery and other things on it’s predecessor.
