Xiaomi is preparing to unveil a new series of devices in the near future: the Mi3, Hongmi M1S and octa-core Hongmi 2.
The Mi3 comes with 4G LTE connectivity and will apparently use the latest Snapdragon 800 chip (MSM8974AC) in this model (marked as Mi3S).
The Hongmi M1S will sport a MediaTek-made 1.7Ghz MT6592 octa-core chip. Despite rocking 8 cores, this processer is slower than Snapdragon 800, but fast nonetheless.
Finally, the Hongmi 2 will be launched, boasting a similar (to the M1S) octa-core processor and a big 5.5-inch screen.
