Most of you might not familiar with a Chinese phone makers Xiaomi, which got some serious coverage in september 2011 when they released their first phone Xiaomi Phone which was quite cheap as compared to the powerful Qualcomm chip it had inside.
Once again Xiaomi has met some expectations and has submitted an updated version of its Famous Xiaomi smartphone, but this one is even more powerful. The Xiaomi M2S announced in two different versions, both of them has been found as a potential rival smartphones to the latest devices from giants like Samsung, HTC or Sony.
The Xiaomi M2S is the replacement of Mi2 model which have been announced in two different variants depending on the internal memory. Th 16 GB Xiaomi M2S will cost around 247 Euros while the 32 GB model will cost 284 Euros. Keeping in mind that both model are quite cheap as compared to the specs it has.
The 16GB model will feature a second generation 8-Mpixel sensor (which has a better opening, f/2.2), the model with capacity of 32 GB will have a 13 Megapixel sensor .
In both models the chosen processor is the Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 which has a clock speed of 1.7 GHz. Xiaomi claimed that it can reaches 25,913 points in AnTuTu, which would be a slight superior in this test compared to Samsung Galaxy S4, Which managed to touch the 25,446 points on that test. The terminal is again governed by MIUI trademark user interface for Xiaomi but this time it has version 5. MIUI is actually the customized version of Android for this manufacturer which will also be available on the Xiaomi M2A.
In the other options we have a terminal similar to its predecessor, with addition of 2 GB of RAM , and a 4.3-inch 720p display made it quite surprising not to including a full HD 1080p 5-inch screen which has been seen in all High-end Smartphones. That may be one of the keys to keep the phone price under control, with a 342 ppi display it seems to be a vibrant and bright display with crispy picture quality.
As indicated in GizChina, for now Xiaomi makers do not mention the presence of a NFC chip in this terminal, something strange considering that the previous lower-model, the M2A had this capability. The battery is 2000 mAh, but the good news is that there is an extra optional battery of 3,000 mAh.
Other interesting features that can be admirable in this low budget smart phone are the support USB OTG , WiFi Direct and WiFi Display , MHL , Dolby, the “Wisdom dual antenna” which theoretically provides optimized reception of voice and data connections of our operators.
