The Xiaomi event which commenced on the 24th of November 2015, showcased two products – the Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 and the Xiaomi Mi Pad 2. However, there was one more device people had been anticipating which was not revealed at the launch – the Mi 5.
The Mi 5 is expected to be the company’s next flagship phone and analyst Pan Jiutang has stated that the company is looking to release it after the country’s Spring Festival which takes place in February.
