Xiaomi is supposedly holding an event at the Beijing National Convention Center on January 15 at 2 PM. It’s expected to launch its new “ultra-thin” flagship smartphone. According to a leaked poster, which when translated says that the device will be thinner than the wings of an insect called cicada which is found in China. Xiaomi will also sell tickets to the event on Jan 8.
The rumors tell us that the smartphone is almost bezel-less huge screen device – probably 5+ inches in screen size, with a possible resolution of 2560×1440 pixels that can be an easy rival to the Galaxy Note 4 and the iPhone 6 Plus. The phone is also expected to look similar to the Mi4. The hardware specs are rumoured to be either Snapdragon 805, or 801, coupled with 3 GB of RAM. The phone’s primary camera is rumored to be a 20.7MP, and there might be a possible inclusion of a fingerprint scanner.
The expected price of this model might be higher than previous ones and as a result, Xiaomi may offer two different models with different prices.
However, there are conflicting rumours about the name. Either Mi4S or the Mi5 have been speculated as possible names. However, the 4S could actually be launched as a mid-range handset, and the Mi5 as its premium version. Of course, with so many rumors, Xiaomi event should be of great interest.
