Clamshell Android powered phone by Xiaomi gets certified by TENAA

Tuesday, September 29, 2015

A gold colored clamshell phone made by Xiaomi, has been certified by TENAA in China. Samsung recently released a similar handset, the SM-G9198, that was powered by Android 5.1.1. Xiaomi's clamshell features gold trim and apparently comes with a removable battery. But the most interesting part of the phone's listing on TENAA is the 8GB of RAM that supposedly is inside the phone. And yes, that is RAM, not ROM.

While we have no choice but to consider that amount of RAM to be a typo or mistake, the rest of the specs are more pedestrian. The clamshell is equipped with a 3.97-inch display carrying a 480 x 800 resolution. That works out to a pixel density of 235ppi. A quad-core 1.4GHz CPU is under the hood, with 16GB of internal storage. A microSD slot is on board for those seeking additional memory.

The TENAA listing reveals an 8MP rear-facing camera and a 2MP front-facing snapper, although the latter doesn't seem to show up well in the photographs. Android 4.4.4 is pre-installed with Xiaomi's clamshell UI running on top, and the phone does support 4G LTE connectivity.

Now that it has been certified by TENAA, we should see Xiaomi making this clamshell official soon. We expect the model will have limited availability.
