Xiaomi planning a ‘Grande Finale’ for the end of 2015, so what will we see launched?


xiaomi grande finale

Xiaomi fans are waiting for at least 2 new phones and a new Android tablet from the Beijing mobile giant, so with news of a ‘Grande Finale’ launch for 2015 what products will we actually see launch.

Xiaomi bosses are hinting that a Grande Finale event will be held this year, and judging by the name we believe it will be the last launch for 2015 and Xiaomi are planning to end the year with a bang. The problem is, what exactly will Xiaomi launch?

Off the top of our heads we know that Xiaomi are long overdue a Xiaomi Mi5 launch, we have also seen TENAA docs showing an all alloy Redmi Note 2 Pro with fingerprint scanner, and further details have pointed at an Intel Powered Xiaomi Mi Pad 2 tablet.

Xiaomi staff are already teasing the event, calling it a Grande Finale, and what would make it quite the show would be the launch of 3 hot Xiaomi products. Not only would this be huge news for the company, and bring fans flocking, but it also wouldn’t hurt end of year sales and boost overall profit for 2015 some.

At this point we don’t know what Xiaomi are up to but if they did launch 3 highly anticipated products at once it would be an exciting spectacle.

    Its a notebook on the picture – so they will finally launch their notebook.

      you think it is a notebook? I mean maybe I dunno, I was looking at how thick each thread is in the material it is sitting on.. it looks like it can’t be more than maybe 3″ wide or so..

    The black box isn’t that tall, only small shadow on the left.
    So either it is something flat (notebook, as mentioned by Dan) or it is only the invitations that is shown here.

    PS: You forgot, that there is also the new MiBand with pulse sensor due.

    Xiaomi did such a bad job this year even Balcobomber gave up and bought a Meizu.

      I didn’t buy a Meizu I won it in the contest here. I will probably go back to Xiaomi if the Mi5 wows me.

      Overall though Xiaomi did a decent job this year. The only really bad phone they released was the Mi4i. The Redmi 2, Redmi Note 2 and Mi4c were all very good releases.

        I think they will release redmi note2 and their Android/Windows tablet.

        not sure with windows tablet but android tab is definitely on the cards

          I actually work for Microsoft’s PR department now. And I “accidentally” found a file named Xiaomi/Windows but I didn’t have access to it. Could be nothing, could be something have to wait and see though.

        Oh I didn’t know you won it, my bad. So I guess it’s like the Zune guy winning an iPod and enjoying it but still somewhat loyal to the Zune?

        Anyways I think this year Xiaomi only strengthened their position as a budget phone maker and pretty much dropped (lost?) the ball with regards to anything midrange or flagship. They really failed to follow market trends (metal, finger print scanners, etc..). If I had to pick my winners for the year I’d say Huawei and Oppo killled it as you see *a lot* more people using their phones now here in China. If I see a Xiaomi there’s a 90% chance it’s a Redmi.

        • balcobomber25

          I would agree on Huaweii but I hardly see anyone using Oppo when I am in China. I see more people using Lenovo now than Oppo. But I see more Xiaomi’s than anything else in China, but yes most of them are Redmi’s.

      Balco won the MX5 in the giveaway a few months back. Also, Xiaomi’s been pretty good this year so far, excluding the Mi4i.

        Redmi 2 is also a failed device, hence the Redmi 2 Prime (16GB ROM, 2GB RAM version)

    They will probably give our money back! 🙂

    There was recently a phone spotted on Geekbench known as the “Gemini”. It specs were the following:

    5.2″ QHD Display
    SD 820
    16mp rear (most likely IMX 234/240 seen on G4/S6)
    13mp front
    Android 6.0
    3D fingerprint

    The only thing it could be is the Mi5 or a new product. It’s too powerful to be a Redmi and too small to be a Redmi Note.

      well they were the first OEM who start offering flagship spec device at cheap price (no … not OnePlus, they just followed what Xiaomi did). So, if there’s an OEM who can give us all those flagship spec on a budget device, it’s Xiaomi. Remember their tagline, “Always believe that something wonderful is about to happen”

      • balcobomber25

        They actually weren’t the first and they are not an OEM (a term that is used wrong throughout this industry). OEM’s are the ones who actually build the phones, for Xiaomi that is Foxconn. ODM’s design phones which is often why multiple companies will have a very similar design, they used the same ODM. Now that is out of the way.

        Xiaomi has been the most successful but they were not the first to offer cheap flagships. Meizu released the M8 and M9 before Xiaomi released a single product. The M8 was actually released 3 years before Xiaomi even existed. There were others too from other companies.

            Not trying hard at all, correcting people who are misinformed comes very easy for me.
