Chinese company Xiaomi (known for their popular ROM MIUI) has just announced a new phone, and this one looks to be every bit as impressive today as the original was when it was announced a year ago. The specs on the cleverly named Xiaomi Phone 2 stand out even in the world of quad-core superphones, and the company has managed to do so while maintaining a price point of just $310 USD.

  • 1.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro APQ8064 CPU (Adreno 320 GPU, 28nm)
  • 2GB RAM
  • 16GB memory
  • Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean)
  • 4.3" 720p IPS display
  • 2,000mAh battery
  • 8MP rear camera, 2MP front
  • 10.2mm thick
  • $310 USD
  • Launching in China in October

The company claims some ultra-impressive benchmark results (above left), and we're inclined to believe them. Even the dual-core S4 is a monster, so it would make sense that the quad-core version (with twice the RAM) would really kick things up. The company is using a 2,000mAh battery to power the chip, to the tune of 10.2mm device thickness.

The phone is expected to hit Chinese store shelves sometime in October for $1,999 yuan.
