Xiaomi today released its latest smartphone, Mi Play, in the Chinese mainland for RMB 1099.
Every Mi Play smartphone sold comes with a SIM card that offers a free and unlimited one-year data package, which includes 10GB of 4G high-speed data every month. This allows users to stay connected 24/7 without any additional charges.
Xiaomi obtained an MVNO (mobile virtual network operator) commercial license from the Chinese Ministry of Industry and Information Technology in July this year, after participating in a nationwide MVNO trial program for three years.
Mi Play is powered by the MediaTek P35 SoC, which is built on 12nm process technology and driven by eight Arm Cortex A53 cores, with a maximum clock speed of 2.3GHz. It comes in a single RAM/ROM option of 4GB + 64GB. On the back, Mi Play sports a 12MP + 2MP AI dual camera setup, with the main sensor featuring 1.25µm large pixels for better indoor images. The 8MP front selfie camera is supported by AI functions such as AI Beautify and AI portrait mode.
