A few hours ago, Xiaomi CEO Lei Jun announced significant discounts on smartphones on the 8 anniversary of the first Mi 1.
It should be remembered that the Mi 1 model was equipped with a Qualcomm MSM8260 SoC dual-core processor with the 1,5 GHz frequency, thus becoming the first Chinese phone in which we had to deal with this processor. The graphics processor Adreno 220 supervised the graphics, which together with 1 GB of RAM had very good performance. In addition, we had to use 4 GB ROM which at that time was a lot.
Mi 1 was produced with a battery with a capacity of 1930 mAh, the manufacturer announced then 2 days of continuous use on one charge, which was a mega result.
The smartphone is equipped with an 4-inch screen by Sharp with a resolution of 480 × 854 LCD. Mi 1 supported A-GPS and Russian GLONASS. In addition, an 8 Mpx camera with F 2.4 lens was installed in the phone. The phone weighed less than 150 grams and had the dimensions 125 x 63 x 11,9 mm. Its price was USD 220.
Xiaomi during this period of 8 years released many phone models on the market at a similar price to Mi 1. To date, Xiaomi is one of the five largest smartphone providers in the world.
We hope that the promised discounts that Xiaomi intends to introduce will also be noticed on shopping sites such as Aliexpress, Gearbest, Banggood, Geekbuying but also in official Xiaomi stores around the world.
