Xiaomi schedules event for November 24, you probably know what to expect


The Xiaomi Mi 5 is taking its own time coming, but we’ve come across some telltale signs that point at the imminent launch of the phone… very soon.

Xiaomi first teased a ‘Grand Finale’ to this year, hinting at pending launches that might finally take place — the Mi 5, Mi Pad 2 and the Redmi Note 2 Pro. It has been learnt today that Xiaomi is hosting an event on the 24th this month, and it’s most likely going to be for the Mi 5 if not anything else along with it.

Interestingly, if you’re in China, despite not being on the invite list, you will be able to attend the event. The only caveat here is that you’ll be asked to shell out an equivalent of $30, and entries will be limited to 500 persons.

While we are indeed expecting the Mi 5, we’ve learnt to expect the unexpected with Xiaomi. The last time we expected the Mi 5, Xiaomi surprisingly launched a 60-inch TV instead!

There’s reason though that this one’s NOT going to be an anti-climax. Xiaomi president Bin Lin posted a picture of the invite, which looks like it could hold the phone chassis and not much more.

    So the image posted here earlier is the invite and perhaps the product box.
    There goes the laptop launch. I’m not complaining though. I would love to see the launch of the Mi5

    I have learned through the years with this company, never get your hopes up! I hope it is the Mi5 a phone I have been waiting for since July but you never know with Xiaomi.

        I do need a new TV for the man cave, 120″ would look pretty sweet….

            I currently have a 60″ LG which I absolutely love but I think it’s time for 4k. I usually stick to LG when buying a TV. They have never let me down and the picture is always beautiful. Although I do love Sharp too.

              it’s time to go “Chinese” with TVs too. LeTV uses LG panels

              I actually like TCL TV’s. Most brands use panels from either LG or Sharp/JDI. Although there are a few Chinese display manufactures emerging which could take the LCD world by storm.

      yeah, they’re going to have a problem living up to it. even with a helio x20 in there …

    The 5″ Mi line is old and busted, everyone that isn’t blind knows it.

    5.3″ Mi5 would be the only way to actually get sales.
