Today, a new video teaser surfaced online showing that Chinese manufacturing giant, Xiaomi, will unveil a new smartphone on June 28. Xiaomi has recently released the Redmi 6 Pro and Xiaomi Mi Tab 4 so we are expecting the Xiaomi Mi 6X Hatsune Edition and Xiaomi Mi Max 3. From the video teaser, our post suggested that this may be the Xiaomi Mi Max 3 which is actually expected in July. However, a recent event shows that it will probably be the Xiaomi Mi 6X Hatsune Edition to arrive on June 28. While Xiaomi has confirmed that it will launch a new product in Japan, the Xiaomi Mi 6X Hatsune Edition made a brief stop on the official Xiaomi Store before it was taken down. However, “spy wizards” were quick to capture a glimpse of the device page before it went down.
