Xiaomi to recall units of latest model, paper says

Chinese smartphone maker Xiaomi Inc. said it will recall its Xiaomi 3 handsets sold through China United Network Communications Group Co. Ltd. (China Unicom) (00762.HK, 600050.CN), but did not say how many units are involved, Securities Daily reported Thursday. Some buyers of the new model found that it does not work on Qualcomm Inc.’s 8974AB processor, which is the fastest of its kind in the world and has been used in Xiaomi’s old models, but adopts the 8274AB CPU instead. Xiaomi, which sold 18.7 million handsets in China last year, has apologized on its official microblog and promised full refund to buyers of the model, the report said.
