The Xiaomi company has started a new campaign on Bilibili, asking the Hatsune Miku fan community to show their support for… Something. But with Xiaomi well known for making smartphones, and having already produced a Miku edition smartphone in the past, it looks like they may be making another!

Campaign Page: https://www.bilibili.com/blackboard/activity-mixchuyin.html

The collaboration asks Miku fans to show their support by voting and sharing to reach the support point goals, and unlock new content and announcements. The campaign page has two buttons used to show your support, an orange “vote” button, and a red “share” button. Each person can “vote” 5 times a day, and share once per day on Weibo, QQ, or Baidu for 10x the support points. After supporting the campaign for 3 days in a row, your support points can be multiplied up to 20x.

The most recent goal of 750,000 “support points” unlocked the full version of “Zuimei Yinji” (The Most Beautiful Impression) featuring Hatsune Miku V4 Chinese, written and composed by Mineko and Irish Kappa! The video features a silhouette of artwork drawn by Mame no Moto. You can listen to this song below.

The campaign has just two more goals to be reached. As of the writing of this article, the campaign sits at 936,000 support points.

– 1,000,000 Support Points: New Theme Image Unlocked. (Will be unlocked automatically June 22nd if the campaign fails to reach 1 million by that date)
– 2,000,000 Support Points: Ultimate Secret Unlocked.

There’s also rewards for those that post comments on the campaign page with the hashtag ” #小米X初音未來#”, and their wish for the campaign (limited to residents in China, of course). Posts to the site have a post ID number. Posts with the hashtag that also end with the number “39” will win a 5,000mAh Xiaomi Mi powerbank. Posts ending with “3939” will win a Xiaomi Mi Band. Each winner can only win their prize once.

We’ll keep you updated as the camaign progresses!

Writer’s note: If I had to take a guess at which phone Xiaomi might use for the next Hatsune Miku edition smartphone, we’re suspecting the Xiaomi Mi 6X.

If you love Hatsune Miku, as well as Sony Xperia phones (this writer sure does!), then this newest release in Sony Xperia’s collaboration with Hatsune Miku will tickle your fancy: Official TPU cases for Sony’s latest Xperia lineup featuring Hatsune Miku V3 and V4X artwork by iXima!

As part of Sony’s “Voices 39” promotion campaign, three new TPU smartphone cases were announced and released for three of Sony’s smartphones: The Xperia XZ, Xperia X performance, and the X Compact. The Xperia XZ case should also be compatible with the soon-releasing Xperia XZs due to having the same body as the current model.


Currently, the cases are available in Japan via the newly-launched Xperia Cover Store, and Gain Garage for 2462 Yen ($23 USD) each. These stores only ship to Japan addresses, so a friend or proxy will be needed to order them. But if you spot these on a more overseas-friendly site, let us know via our contact page!

The world renowned virtual idol Hatsune Miku is making her way to the smartphone market once more, as Xiaomi has officially announced the Xiaomi Redmi Note 4X Hatsune Miku limited edition as of today. Not much is known of the phone for the time being, but here’s what we know so far.

The phone bears a striking similar appearance with its predecessor, Xiaomi Redmi Note 4, and comes in a beautiful teal color design with Hatsune Miku theme. The back of the phone in the promo images is engraved with “初音未来” and “No.831” as references to Hatsune Miku in Chinese and her birthday on August 31st.

The limited edition package features a neat white design decorated with an original illustration by iXima, the official illustrator behind Hatsune Miku V3 and V4XAccessories inside the package are a portable battery pack and a case, with both featuring the same original illustration by iXima on the box cover.

Xiaomi Redmi Note 4X is a 5.5-inch Full HD display device packed with a huge 4100 mAh battery. It also offers better-sustained performance on a 14nm FinFET Snapdragon 625 processor which is 20% more power efficient than Redmi Note 3, and is bound to put more power in your pocket. Redmi Note 4X has a 13MP CMOS camera and there are 5 colors to choose from: Green, Gold, Grey, Pink and Black.

As of now, we cannot confirm whether the phone will have international firmware or not. This will affect the ability to access Google Play Store. We don’t expect the phones to be available outside Xiaomi’s markets, however, international purchases with the assistance from importers is also an option.

The Xiaomi Redmi Note 4X Hatsune Miku limited edition will go on sale on Valentine’s Day at 1299 RMB (188.70 USD). Regular edition (phone only) will be priced at 999 RMB (145.12 USD). In the mean time, check out the minigame on the official site featuring Ievan Polkka!
