Last week Xiaomi broke the silence and announced its upcoming presentation, scheduled for November 26, dedicated to the announcement of three new products that will become part of the Redmi Note 9 5G family.
Redmi sends weird invitations to the launch event of the Redmi Note 9 5G
This time, Xiaomi decided to be original and it figured out how to invite the media to the upcoming presentation in an original way. The head of Redmi Liu Weibing posted photos of the invitation on Weibo. As it turned out, boxes were sent to the journalists, inside which contained the invitation to the event and a sword.
The company may be preparing a real swords show at the presentation and the meaning of the hint with the sword will become clear after the official event, but attempts to unravel it can be made even now. The invitation itself says:
“There are thousands of schools and thousands of moves in the arena, but great heroes don’t ask for unique advice. They have to hone one stroke to perfection in order to benefit people. Redmi Note 9 is a polished movement. On November 26, we invite you to talk about swords. ”
It is known that on November 26, the company will show Redmi Note 9 5G, which will offer a Dimensity 800U chip, a 5000 mAh battery, a 6.53-inch FullHD + display and a multi-module camera, where the main sensor is 48 MP.
