Xiaomi Prepping Announcement For Tomorrow, is it the Xiaomi Mi3S?

Xiaomi has announced an announcement. On its official Weibo account, Xiaomi posted an image giving tomorrow (April 28th) at 10am (presumably Beijing time) as the time and date of an official announcement. What said announcement will include is anyone’s guess, but speculation has already begun.

The 28th will be less than a week since Xiaomi’s last major announcement. On the 23rd, Xiaomi held its own conference that was perceived as an attempt to lessen the focus on OnePlus’ reveal of its flagship phone. Speculation for that announcement caused some to go as far as expecting the reveal of the Mi3S or the long rumored Xiaomi tablet. Many users were disappointed with Xiaomi’s actual reveal of two routers and a set top box, although that criticism was perhaps a little unfair.

Still, Xiaomi seems ready to give something to the cell phone community. Today, it posted an image of a message on what appears to be a render of the Mi3S. There were few details in the image, other than the date and time and the old adage “Always believe that something wonderful is about the happen.”

What does it all mean? It could be something as simple as lowering the price of the Mi3 to compete with the OnePlus, or it could possibly be the reveal of the oft-leaked Mi3S. Or Xiaomi being Xiaomi, they could blindside us with something completely unexpected.

At least we won’t have to wait long to find out.

    If the Mi3s is not announced tomorrow or the coming weeks, then I expect there is a change in plans. What could surprise me, is that they are going to lower the price even more to beat the competition, lower than 1999 yuan for 16 GB and 2299 yuan for 64 GB (64GB price set by oneplus).

    Let’s pray the design of the Mi3s is better than the Mi3, also less bezel and thinner than before.

      Why do you want a thinner phone? I think they can keep the thickness of MI3 but with a large battery.

    Surely it’ll be something in response to OnePlus’s recent success in creating so much hype and gathering so much positive attention for their One..?
