Xiaomi Mi3 successor reported to sport more metal and a Snapdragon 801 chip

The Chinese manufacturer Xiaomi is set to announce the Mi3S, a successor to the gorgeous looking Mi3 Android smartphone. According to myDrives, the new device will have an enhanced metallic design, as well as some shiny new specifications to boast about. The first is a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor, which will be joined by 3GB RAM, LTE and a 13MP rear shooter.

Finally, the display is said to be similar to the Mi3 -- a 1080p 5-inch panel, and Xiaomi will look to price the Android device at 1,999 CNY ($320). We'll have to see how accurate these reports are. While the Mi3S is likely to be pushed hard in the Asia region, we'd like to see this handset released elsewhere. How about yourselves? Let us know your thoughts on the Mi3S in the comments.
