Xiaomi has revealed its MiPhone 3 or just Mi-3 at a product event in Beijing today, just as previously expected.The MI3 candy bar phone is available with either a 1.8GHz Tegra 4 processor or Snapdragon 800 CPU (the more powerful MSM8974AB variant), with the former heading to China Mobile’s TD-SCDMA network, while the latter landing on China Unicom’s WCDMA network and China Telecom’s CDMA2000 network. Both flavors sport a 5-inch 1080p IPS LCD built by Sharp or LG with “ultra sensitive touch” that works even when the user has wet hands or has gloves on.
