  1. IIRC, that 2 Ghz MediaTek Helio X10 Octa-Core processor is the same SoC in some HTC M9 variants, so essentially Xiaomi put the SoC in a $800 2015 flagship device in a $125 2015 device. ridiculous on so many levels, why won’t the phone sell out in 8 hours?

  2. Well, the phone actually sells for more than the slated price. I’ve contacted these people that ship phones from China to Nigeria; their price is about 40k.
