Who would’ve imagined that there would be turbulence right after the launch of WCDMA Xiaomi Mi3? Well, unfortunately there was and here’s how Xiaomi chose to react.
When buyers received the much-awaited WCDMA Xiaomi Mi3 three days back, many reported that the device wasn’t running on the MSM8974AB variant of the Snapdragon 800, as promised. The WCDMA Mi3 that they received had an MSM8274AB at heart, which although does belong to the Snapdragon 800 family, still isn’t the MSM8974AB.
I knew this new :Snapdragon 800 MSM8974AB-packing version of the Mi3 will come by the end of the year, and Xiaomi CEO Lei Jun has just confirmed that December is (likely) the month to circle, if you're digging the flagship.
However, the latest news from xiaomi, 3G WCDMA 16G MI3 will be in stock on www.xiaomiworld.com . 2013. December64 G MI3 will send on Jan. 2014. this website said they wiil be in stock on DEC FOR international users.

Sony's quality has taken a steep drop in recent years. Other versions of the Xperia phone have shown poor performance and low sales. Why would the Z1 be any better? On the other hand, Xiaomi has been rising in the ranks for the past few years. People have been highly satisfied with Xiaomi products and there is even a large demand in the USA... so large, that Xiaomi can't keep up... that speaks for itself.
Come on peoples Tegra 4 has 4+1 core mean total 5 cores, While Qualcom has only 4. and Qualcom is also open source and way better than tegra 4 even with 1 core less it comes very close to tegra 4.
and benchmarks tells nothing about actual performance and battery life.
chinezu, 09 Nov 2013good thing ppl don't complain about the bezels like they do with sony's, i have the m2a model... moreyup, this phone has the same dimensions with z1 and i will go for z1. same chipset but z1 is from trusted brand Sony, z1 has more better in built quality, camera, water proof, expandable storage, upgradable to KitKat, etc. Sony all the way
good thing ppl don't complain about the bezels like they do with sony's, i have the m2a model from xiaomi, nothing to brag about, internals are good but overal package is on the cheap side, thin plastic, cost me 400rmb (75usd) to change d front after cracking on my first 1m drop, no google play and so on
This design look exactly like Ubuntu Phone,but Ubuntu never release the phone do to low financial problem.
[deleted post]You are talking about I pad air exploded in Austrilia , right ?
Open your mind. Stop looking down on others.
In the philippines you can buy it in online shopping. Bit the price is to high. More than the price of xperia z or samsung s4. Insted of this, people bought the branded one.
They are lucky they posted such news soon.. I had waited so long,given up, and planned to buy the nexus 5 in the coming week. I would be very disappointed if the xiaomi phone does live up to the expectation.. :(
Kris, 08 Nov 2013I have pre ordered one, Now waiting for Dec to come, tec... toc... ^_^ What store?? Its online??
When the company goes global, the prices would increase obviously. Right now they can afford to be cheap.
dran, 08 Nov 2013Even in China, very few ppl could get it. It needs some kind of code to order online. There is... moreXiaomi limit the number when chipset's price is high and make it unlimited when sunsumg or sony decrease the price of outdated flagship.This is a trick of xiaomi.
