Xiaomi, a Chinese company that has gained such kind of popularity, has removed the covers on their rumored "Red Rice" phone. And the features are impressive and, should I say, colorful.

Xiaomi sure have been successful lately, and with top tier specs for a low price we know why. Their devices sell out in days throughout China, and have become increasingly popular.

MI-One, Xiaomi's Android smartphone powered by the community-authored MIUI ROM, has garnered quite a lot of attention as of late. The second phone in the lineup has been revealed as the MI-One Youth Edition, which is basically identical save for a slower 1.2Ghz CPU and slightly less RAM at 768MB. The phone will go for about $240 unlocked when it releases later this month, and yes, it's still running the MIUI software.
