MIUI Phone Caught on Video, Launch Event Goes Off Today

Had a hard time wrapping your brain around a MIUI phone actually making its way onto store shelves over in China?  It’s the real deal, folks.  A video of the device has surfaced on YouTube, showing off every little crevice of its 1.5GHz dual-core, 1GB RAM, 4″, MIUI-running self.  Oh, and if this still doesn’t look legit enough, we’re seeing that the Engadget team is on the scene of the announcement event which appears to be going on right now.  Tasty little MIUI morsel.   


Cheers ben!

    It will be interesting to see if the MIUI team continue to release weekly or biweekly updates to the os like they have been doing on the MIUI.us, if so this would be a phone to watch if it ever made it state side.

    I have been using miui on my x with launcher pro on top. Very smooth and sharp. One of the best combos to date.

    Kinda surprised to see no poo-pu platter jokes.

    This phone will be available in the US soon.  How soon?  “In about 10… 15 minute.”

  • OGDroidAllTheWay

    What did he say?  “America is full of jack-offs.”  Really?  Did I hear that correctly?  Just before the 1 minute mark in the video…

      I heard it to. WOW

    “Price set at ¥1999” — From http://miuiandroid.com/…. Really??? $26 (and change) for a phone? Sounds a bit pipe-dreamish to me.

    • Anonymous

      This is China. $26 can buy you a small car there. 

    • Anonymous

      I think it’s in chinese yuan, so about $313 USD.


    Could that user be any more spastic?  Lay off the drugs dude!  And that to me, does not look anything like an iPhone or should I say iPwn?

  • hells to the yes, ill even get a t-mo account to run it.

    • “Buy now, you love long time, 300 dalla”

      Does it matter what he is saying? the video doesn’t show anything other then the phone working.

      • Djlowproz

      Chinese people think its good luck… sorta like Troy Palamalu’s hair.

      • Chinese people think Palamalu’s hair is good luck? Considering what they do to rhino horns, he’d better watch his back!

  • Jason Purp

    Seems like the phone is made out of plastic or something. And I thought that MIUI was developed by a small team of Chinese guys. Not a whole company of them. How the hell were they able to build a phone from scratch like that, and how impressive can the build quality actually be?

    Also, this will be coming to America on all major carriers, EXCEPT Verizon. Just watch.

    • Anonymous

      It should be compatible with T-mo and AT&T. I’d import one of these if I weren’t on Verizon.

    Although I give the devs of MIUI a lot of props I never got the concept of it.  In my opinion all its good for is for people suffering from buyers remorse after buying an Android when they really wished they bought an I*hone.

    I had it on my OG and it lasted for about an hour.  The idea of having folders in place of an app drawer was more than I could handle.

      I agree. It’s a very pretty UI but I don’t like the concept. If they make it easier to organize I might give it another. I guess I could always try launcher pro with it…

    • DBK

      ADW Launcher or Launcher Pro. Done.

      The appeal is the efficient redesign and smoothness of it.

        With all due respect I never saw it….but to each their own.

        Happy Modding!

  • could use a kickstand 😛

    Cut your fingernails.

    • Trooper

      Lol I thought the same thing.

  • Does anyone know what screen technology the screen is? 

  • John

    with all the tech out these days, this vid wasn’t recorded in HD?

  • It’s too bad that MIUI copies the Apple UI so much. With the way Apple guys after Samsung there’s absolutely no hope for MIUI phones to really survive outside of China. Meanwhile, it still looks really nice on my Incredible 2!

  • Tim Citta

    Apple’s gonna sue the living sh*t outa that

    • Not if HTC wins their case… 🙂

    • Apple doesn’t rule the world, this is in China, US patents don’t mean shit to them.

      • FortitudineVincimus

        Is this the same China where they recently busted over 20 fake “Apple Stores” where even the employees thought they were working for Apple.. China laughs at US patents

  • 03f150

    Meh, Who cares.

  • Muddy B00ts

    I’d tap that… screen.
