Xiaomi announces its first Android Go handset, the super-budget Redmi Go

Once upon a time, a budget Android smartphone wasn’t a very nice thing to look at. Made to conform to a price point rather than to attract customers, cheaper Androids were typically poorly-designed, slow, and difficult to use. Once upon a time. Xiaomi’s newly-announced Redmi Go, the company’s first Android Go smartphone, is hoping to change your mind on that score. The Redmi Go u...[Read More]

Here’s a look at an early version of Xiaomi’s folding phone in action

Folding phones are a little like Pringles. Nobody’s thinking about them, then someone shows up with a tube and suddenly everyone wants one. That’s why everyone seems to be trying to catch up with Samsung. Motorola is thought to have something in the works with an updated RAZR, LG and Huawei are working on versions of their own and even Apple might have a folding device up its crisp, wh...[Read More]

Xiaomi announces the Redmi Note 7, complete with a 48MP camera

Xiaomi recently decided to spin off their Redmi range of budget mobile phones into a standalone brand. And Redmi has wasted no time in announcing the first device to fall under their new umbrella, a sub-R3,000 phone that boasts a 48MP camera sensor. Insanity! The Redmi Note 7 may be affordable, but the specs are decent enough to have it compete with the big guys. It has a big 6.3in LCD display wit...[Read More]

Xiaomi makes its high-end Mi Mix 3 official, offers up to 10GB of RAM

We’ve been fans of Xiaomi’s smartphones — and their other tech — for quite some time. Their gear doesn’t have the same in-your-face impact that Samsung and Apple deliver but it’s solid, speedy, and it tends to be affordable. We’re not sure about the local price of Xiaomi’s new Mi Max 3 but we reckon it’s got the first two sewn up. Xiaomi has an...[Read More]

Black Shark gaming smartphone. Wait, what?

Okay, gaming is becoming portable, we get it. But really, this portable? It’s not like mobile phones optimised for gaming aren’t already on our Christmas list. It just feels like the gaming community isn’t quite as ready for them as some companies seem to be hoping. First we saw the Razer phone earlier this year, and now Xiaomi has launched its Black Shark device, which is — you guessed it &...[Read More]

Xiaomi teases Redmi 5, Redmi 5 Plus ahead of 7 December reveal

We’ve often had good things to say about Xiaomi’s range of smartphones because, well… they’re good phones, Brent. We’ve got no reason to expect anything different of the Redmi 5, the newest handset from the Chinese company. The newly-teased Redmi 5 and Redmi 5 Plus are going to be heading our way soon, so we might have reason to be excited. Maybe. That’s because...[Read More]

This is the Xiaomi Mi A1, the newest Android One smartphone

Xiaomi’s smartphones have been making more and more appearances on our radars of late and that’s a trend that doesn’t seem to be slowing. The Xiaomi Mi A1 is just the latest in a line of handsets that have caught our collective eyes, only this one is a bit different. For starters, the Mi A1 is a member of Google’s Android One program. A program that didn’t really get ...[Read More]

The world’s largest purveyor of wearable tech is now… Xiaomi

When you think of wearable tech there’s one name that jumps to mind first: Fitbit. So much so that many fitness bands are called, generically, Fitbits. And with good reason, the company once held sway over the world’s wearables market but now there’s a new king of the castle. And it’s not contender Apple. It’s Xiaomi. Xiaomi has captured 17.1% of the world’s wea...[Read More]

Xiaomi’s new Mi 6 is a dual camera-wielding slab of awesome

Xiaomi’s phones have been giving the big boys a run for their money, mostly in China but also here in South Africa lately. The company’s newest, the Mi 6, should carry on that tradition — because it’s a tradition now — even in the face of Samsung, LG, and perhaps even Apple’s newest devices. We’re basing this off the reveal of the Mi 6 handset, which is se...[Read More]

Not content with just phones, Xiaomi to announce its own mobile chipset this month

China’s Xiaomi is doing very well for itself of late. It’s one of the largest forces in the Chinese mobile market and it is making inroads into other markets as well. The company makes everything from mobile phones to drones to laptops and electric bicycles and it makes them cheaply and well. But we could always do with things being a little cheaper. Xiaomi has a plan to make their mob...[Read More]

We’re getting closer to having Xiaomi’s battery-packing Redmi Note 4

If the Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 is anything like the Redmi Note 3 then we’re going to have to get us some of that. Or, to put it another way, we will be all but forced to consider discarding our current cellular devices is favour of this freshly-minted option. As it happens, we now know more about what will be inside the Redmi Note 4 and the specs are looking more attractive than the last time we...[Read More]
