The company's facebook page 'MI India' has shared an image that promises to bring a bundle of surprises at an announcement slated for July 15th. The image contains the pictures of smartphones that we believe are none other than that of the fast-getting-popular phones in Xiaomi portfolio - the Xiaomi Redmi 1S and Redmi Note. In anticipation of the upcoming launch, we decided to take a look at the features and tech specs of both the phone's that Xiaomi will be showing off pretty soon. Here's what they look like -

Configuration is very impressive, Price too. MIUI OS ? Well, I will pass LOL!
Plus devices like this never are supported by CM developers, an another reason why I won't purchase Xiaomi.

MIUI is just User Interface I think.

It's a Custom ROM.

I've tried miui on my nexus once for a change, and it was OK for a first few days but afterwards i got sick of it and had to switch back. So unless miui gets better, xiaomi is not on my buying list. Having said that i don't think most people would care much about the firmware - the specs blows away all other Indian brands (mmx, xolo, karbonn... ) in the segment.
