Xiaomi Announces Cheaper, Less Powerful Youth Edition Andorid Cell

Posted by at 12:15 pm on May 17, 2012

The hot-selling Xiaomi Mi One just received a smaller brother, the cheaper and less powerful Youth Edition. The smartphone will cost 1,500 yuan (about $240) or 500 yuan ($50) less than the M1. Major specs such as the 4-inch, 854×480 touchscreen and eight-megapixel camera will be retained, as will the 4GB of built-in storage and 1,930mAh battery.

The dual-core CPU will run at a slower speed, however, rated at 1.2GHz versus 1.5GHz. RAM has been pared down to 768MB from the M1’s 1GB. Like its big brother, the Youth Edition will run on a heavily customized Android OS overlaid by Xiaomi’s MIUI interface.

The Chinese company committed to producing 150,000 examples of the phone, with the company starting a pre-registration page that will let users sign up until May 18. If the success of the Mi One was any indication, the phones will sell out quick. The last batch of 150,000 sold out in under 13 minutes.
