The new Xiaomi smartphone features a slightly redesigned case and improved specs - Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 SoC, 3 GB of memory and Android 4.4 KitKat.

The Mi-3 smartphone from Chinese phone maker Xiaomi may soon get an update, reveals a recent leak that also includes a few images. The Xiaomi Mi-3S is expected to feature a minor external redesign and slightly beefed up specs.

The Xiaomi Mi-3 comes loaded with Android 4.2 Jelly Bean and packs a 2.3 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor next to 2 GB of memory, 16 GB of internal storage and a 5-inch Full HD display. The upcoming Xiaomi Mi-3S will ship with Android 4.4 KitKat, a 2.5 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 chip, 3 GB of memory, 16 GB of storage and the same 5-inch Full HD display as its predecessor. In addition to these, it also features a design with rounded corners which makes it look less boxy than the Mi-3.

Unfortunately there is no hint on pricing and availability of this handset outside of China at this time. Given Xiaomi's excellent reputation on the local market, it is probably only a matter of time until this company goes global.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
