Xiaomi plans a new Anniversary phone for their 8th anniversary

Everyone’s favourite Chinese startup prepares to celebrate their anniversary

It’s hard to imagine that Xiaomi’s already almost 8 years old. The company began its run as an underdog against companies like Meizu and Oppo. Now, their one of the top dogs in the smartphone market. It’s been a truly incredible sight to see how well they’ve done in such a short span of time. Now that their 8th anniversary is coming up, it seems the company has some interesting plans up their sleeves.

Rumours have been circulating around Weibo that Xiaomi’s got an anniversary phone in the works. Some claims say that the new device is merely the Mi7, which we know will be renamed as the Mi8. There are tons of pictures on Weibo that support this, including a poster with a huge 8 on it. There’s another that says 100 Mi Fans will win the phone for free as well. The box for it made an appearance as well, and that basically confirms it.
