Xiaomi launches in Brazil, brings entry-level Redmi 2 Android phone

We haven't heard much recently from Xiaomi the past months but we know the latest model, the Redmi 2, is arriving in other countries other than China but not in the US (not yet). According to Hugo Barra, they are still testing the market first if Mi accessories will sell or not. That's understandable because it can be a challenge for a new Chinese startup to just enter a big market like the United States.

Hugo Barra: Xiaomi handsets will not be in the US anytime soon

China-based device manufacturers Xiaomi may still have aspirations of one day releasing a device for the US market, but that time is not anytime soon, according to Xiaomi Vice President and former Android product spokesperson Hugo Barra. While most of us are waiting for a specific timeframe on Xiaomi’s plans to go stateside, we might have to wait a bit more.

Xiaomi does own teardown for its Mi 4i for Indian market

Usually, we see teardowns on new devices done by so-called "teardown experts" but sometimes, the best people to do that are the ones who actually know or worked on the device. Xiaomi has done exactly that, giving former Google executive and current Xiaomi Vice President of International Hugo Barra the task of doing the teardown for their new "value for money" device, the Mi 4i. He shows us what is inside the smartphone that has been created as an affordable semi-flagship, appealing specifically to the Indian market.

Chinese mobile market reportedly slowing down as per new IDC report

For the first time in six years, the supposedly emerging mobile market in China is showing signs of slowing down as the year over year figures show it has contracted 4% in the first quarter of 2015,, according to a the Mobile Phone Tracker report from the IDC. Of course it isn't time yet to panic, especially for those who have invested in this market, but it just goes to show that they are nearing saturation point, and so the focus has to somehow change.

Why Hugo Barra doesn’t want a microSD card in Xiaomi flagship phones

For Android fans who don't know, the iPhone has always been without a microSD card slot so storage expansion was never an option. You have to decide if you want a 16GB, 32GB, or 64GB memory. But for Android, expansion has always been an advantage. A small 8GB storage doesn't really matter because you can just buy a microSD card and stick inside your phone.

Xiaomi gives us a closer look at the Mi 4i, watch all vids here

The pastel colored Xiaomi Mi 4i which we recently featured looks really cute and sweet. Unfortunately, the phone is initially exclusive in India. The Chinese electronics company Xiaomi hopes to attract the masses with this budget-friendly smartphone model with A-OK specs: a 1080p screen, 13MP main camera, dual SIM support, and 4G LTE connectivity. The camera can beat the HTC One M9's camera with its f/2.0 aperture. The 5.0 megapixel sensor in front is able to take endless selfies and hour-long video chats.

Xiaomi Mi 4i is tasty but sadly confined to India

Xiaomi is doing it again, teasing the rest of the world with a decent smartphone at an affordable price that only a very select few can get their hands on. True to their word, they have unveiled the Xiaomi Mi 4i to woo the masses in India. It may not really go head to head with high-end flagships, but at a fraction of the price, it might pretty much be worth it, especially when you consider the somewhat high-end components coming from respectable manufacturers.
