The latter confirms what we thought, namely the support on the Snapdragon 410 platform, which allows you to take advantage of a 1.2-GHz quad-core 64-bit processor, 1 GB of RAM, Adreno 306 GPU and especially compatibility 4G / LTE which is lacking on the current model. It also goes in the direction of a screen 4.7 inch 720p, 2 and 8 Megapixel photo sensors and a system Android 4.4.4 KitKat. What looks like a hardware and software update should allow you to fight back against models such as the K3 very recently presented by Lenovo.

Still on the news of the Chinese manufacturer Xiaomi, third world player, we are talking about a new fundraiser. According to the Dow Jones Newswires, shareholders DST Global and GIC have injected new funds, while All-Stars Investment, Alibaba Jack Ma boss and Yuefeng Capital have in turn acquired Xiaomi's capital.

Amounting to 1 billion of dollars, the fundraising brings the capitalization of the Chinese giant to more than 45 billion of dollars. It will allow him to continue to cut prices and thus pursue his objectives of conquering the world, once he has resolved his few concerns about patent infringement.
