Xiaomi to launch new phones on 15th January?

Rumours are inbound that Xiaomi will be releasing something new on January 15th next year!

Chinese tech analysts are all a chatter over the possibility that Xiaomi could be ready to launch a couple of new devices early next year, in the next 3 weeks in fact! This isn’t the first time that Xiaomi have been rumoured to release new devices, in the past Hugo Barra himself mentioned that a couple of new Xiaomi phones would launch in 2015 based on the same Android framework as the Xiaomi Mi3.

Gizchina News of the week

It’s unclear which models will be launched, but we can hazard a guess. Chances are we won’t see a Xiaomi Mi4S as many had speculated, instead we should see the launch of a new Xiaomi Redmi (long overdue in our opinion) and possibly a new low cost tablet. There are also chances a Leadcore SoC powered phone could go on sale and a new Redmi Note too.

We will keep our ear to the ground and see what unfolds!

    A Snapdragon powered Redmi Note with Dual SIM for India please. The way Redmi 1s sips battery with crisp performance, makes one want for only Snapdragon phones.

      MT6752 vs Snapdragon 615 http://browser.primatelabs.com/geekbench3/compare/1582808?baseline=1583540
      And the Snapdragon 410 is clocked low so you don’t really gain perf over a 1.6GHz SD400 in the Redmi 1S

    Well, I really don’t think there’ll be a THIRD Xiaomi Redmi Note version… But a new version of Redmi 1S, Mi 2S and new pad – ok.

      If it’s gonna launched in January will be expensive than both Mi3 and Mi4’s 1999 yuan price.

      Maybe they will announce it on CES 2015 and simultaneously drop Mi4’s price. Actual launch will be a couple of month later.

    seems silly that they’re waiting until a week after CES…

    Honestly I hope Xiaomi is going to introduce some high end Note device? Maybe some mi pen included? That could be a real kick ass phone with Xiaomi pricing.. But thats just a dream i gues

    But have any of the xiaomi devices passed the Chinese telecom? As I understand each phone has to get the licence for being able to sell, if we know about such a licence, we can know what it is
