Are there any differences between the phones?
I know that there are only 2 versions:
1. MI3 - Tegra
2. MI3 - WCDMA

I've noticed that the position of the main microphone (four small holes) at the top varies.

On some variants it is next to the headphone jack :

On others it is on the opposite end from the headphone jack :

Almost all the back covers I've seen online cater to the first (I believe the Tegra - TD version).

Mi3S? Are you sure about that?

Xiaomi usually adds an 'S' to the model number only when they release a revamped version of a previous model.
like
Hongmi / Hongmi 1S (Redmi)
Mi1 / Mi1S
Mi2 / Mi2S

Also 2G and 3G frequencies in Singapore and India are same, so there is need to release a seperate model for each country unless the Singapore version supports 4G.

Hi, I am in China at the moment looking for the Mi3W WCDMA version with SnapDragon 800 CPU (for China Telecom and all International Markets). I did see a shop with the Tegra 4 version which I did not want as I want the phone for Australia and I imagine that most ROMS here will be snapdragon 800. I was ready to buy the phone today at another shop but they couldn't give me a clear indication as to which version they had. Language was the main issue and when i looked at one which was working, I couldn't see ARM or snapdragon.

I really want to get this phone but need something in Chinese to indicate that they are supplying the correct phone to me... maybe there is a clue on the outside of box I could look at ID sticker that may confirm the processor. It seems from this thread that if it is China telecom model then it will be the WCDMA.

Any help appreciated.

For Mi3W WCDMA in Chinese:

联通版 WCDMA
SnapDragon 800 -> 晓龙 800

If I were you, I'll not buy the phone from any shop other than Xiaomi, especially in China because there are a lot of fake out there.

Whatever it is, its not OFFICALLY announced yet so we can just simply cross-out the MI3S name first. The sources that you gave me are not really official. Xiaomiworld is just an EU warehouse that gets supplies from Xiaomi. So yea its not rly official.
