Phone To Be Released Overseas Running MIUI Stock – Entitled The ‘MI-ONE’

MIUI is an amazing custom ROM choice for Android users, as it brings its own list of features to the table, just like CyanogenMod. Both are in different leagues of their own. Up on the MIUI website, they have pictures, and a full spec sheet of a phone that is going to be manufactured by an overseas company. The phone looks great, and we are hoping this is not a dream. 

Here is the full list of features as stated:


– Unlocked bootloader!
– Android 2.3.5 pre-loaded (MIUI ROM)
– Sharp capacitive 4 inch screen at 480 x 854 res 16:9
– Dual-core 1.5GHz Snapdragon S3 (MSM8260)
– Up to 32GB Micro-SD card support
– 8MP Rear Camera
– Noise-cancelling microphone
– 1930mAH battery! +30% on standard 1500mAH
– GPS (U.S. GPS and Russian GLONASS;)
– Wi-Fi (802.11 b/g/n) and Bluetooth connectivity
– 266MHz Adreno220 GPU
– 125 * 63 * 11.9 (mm)
– GSM / WCDMA bands

Other specs:

– x3 Capacitive touch buttons (Menu, Desktop, Back  key)
– Side USB (micro) port
– Volume button (side)
– Powerbutton (side)
– MI-Button (Customisable button for application of your choice)
– 149g weight


– Interchangable back covers in variety of different colours. (currently 7 with more to follow)
– Other “MI” Accessories to be launched such as phone stand.

Price set: ¥1999

So we’re looking at a 4 inch, 1.5 GHz processor, GSM/WCDMA, and an unlocked bootloader? Where do we sign up? With a price of around $300, that’s not too bad. We would expect more just for the unlocked bootloader.

If this phone comes to fruition, who would purchase just for nostalgia? Fingers crossed everybody!

    I as well as my friends ended up taking note of the great information from the website and so all of the sudden I got an awful suspicion I had not thanked you for those tips. All of the people came as a result thrilled to study them and have honestly been making the most of them. Thank you for genuinely so kind and also for making a decision on some incredibly good subjects most people are really needing to learn about. My personal sincere regret for not expressing appreciation to you earlier.

I will never pay such expensive retail prices in stores again. Especially when I also sold a 40 inch LED TV to my boss for $625 which only cost me $62.81 to buy.

    That phone is totally badass! but it is undeniably close to the look of crApple, so just wait for it… it will come, the “law suit”.

    If it ever came to the states Apple would sue.

  • Mistawha

    Kind of find this one to be odd. Miui and CM7 on diff worlds? Miui is developed off of Cyanogen, so its the same world. And dont they have to have some agreement with Cyanogen to use his base framework seeing as they are going to be making money essentially off some of his work? Sounds like a bad deal already.

    • Anonymous

      Cyanogenmod is Open Source.  The licence he uses does not require people like MIUI to reveal their source even if it’s based on his code.  So no, they don’t need an agreement with CM.

      That is a good question actually, that “¥” represents both the Japanese Yen and the Chinese Yuan

      Just checked, its definitely Yuan, since it comes out to about $313 U.S. where as if it were yet in would be $26 U.S.

  • http://twitter.com/reggie1225 Reginald Jefferson

    I’m impressed.  And with an unlocked bootloader, if you aren’t happy with MIUI some talented dev could oh I don’t know…port over CyanogenMod or build some custom rom for this hardware.  Now lets see these go from vaporware to actual hardware.

    Vaporware. I’d buy it though.

    • Anonymous

      Why would you say vaporware? They held a pretty big press conference today where they announced it and allowed media, including engadget, to try it out. The OS has been out for over a year so I’m not sure what about it is vapor.

    Wonder if MMS works on it.  It doesn’t on the DROID ROMs for MIUI.

All the boys happened to be absolutely joyful to see all of them and already have in fact been making the most of those things. We appreciate you truly being really considerate and also for making a decision on variety of awesome ideas most people are really needing to discover. Our own honest apologies for not expressing gratitude to earlier.

            This is why droid-life is the most fun android blog around.

            I recall a similar digression in the article comments back when Swype was locking down control over distribution of their APK’s in the rooting community.  All it took was one person writing “No more swiping swype?”

            Then, “Swiper no swiping?”

            And then, it was all downhill from there with the Dora references.  Hilarious stuff.

      I’m pretty sure it won’t work on Verizon. Someone can please prove me wrong though.

      • Anonymous

        It seems like technologically it could work on VZ since the WCDMA runs on the same bands as VZ. But I remember long ago I had a foreign dumbphone that was also compatible, but the rep said he couldn’t do it since it wasn’t part of their “product line”.

        • Anonymous

          “Wideband Code Division Multiple Access (WCDMA) phones will not work with Verizon. WCDMA is a 3G voice and data transfer standard and an extension of GSM, the Global System for Mobile Communication. In the United States, AT&T and T-Mobile use WCDMA, while Verizon and Sprint do not.”

      Wasn’t part of them being able to buy the 700mhz spectrum them agreeing to an open network?

      • Hoosiercub

        Even off this phone would work on VZE. 1. They wouldn’t and don’t have to activate it. And 2. The agreement of the 700Mhz spectrum only applies to LTE. Not the CDMA spectrum.

        • Anonymous

          And 3, this isn’t even a CDMA phone to begin with.

    • Anonymous

      WCDMA is what AT&T uses for 3G.  Most people simply refer to AT&T as a GSM network, but that’s for their 2G network.  WCDMA and CDMA are different and incompatible.  AT&T uses WCDMA for 3G.  Verizon uses CDMA.

    • Anonymous

      WCDMA is 3G on GSM (UMTS and HSPA employ it).
      It’s in no way compatible with CDMA used by VZW.

  • Kevin5583

    Wrong. It’s around $310. But still feel free to give them out 😀
