The Chinese handset manufacturer has announced that it will launch new products on March 31 to commemorate its five-year anniversary.


After launching a 40-inch full-HD variant of the Mi TV 2 yesterday in China, Xiaomi is all set to unveil new products on March 31. Not much is mentioned as to what will be on offer, but CEO Lei Jun will be on hand to launch the new product in front of the Chinese media. Judging by the wording of the announcement, it looks like we'll see more than one new product making its debut next week.

Xiaomi anniversary

Xiaomi already launched its flagship for the year, the Mi Note and a higher-end version with a 2K screen, the Mi Note Pro, earlier this year. In the entry-level segment, the vendor is offering the Redmi 2, with the Mi Pad being the sole tablet on offer. The latter two products are now available for sale in India, with the Mi Note currently exclusive to the Chinese market.

While there's no indication as to what's on offer at the event, it is possible we may get to see Xiaomi's first smartwatch, which will allegedly be called the Mi Watch. The watch is expected to feature a brushed metal design and a circular dial, and will come with the ability to monitor blood pressure via pulse wave velocity recognition.

In terms of smartphones, the latest leak suggests that we'll be looking at a new mid-range device with a 4.9-inch full-HD display along with a 64-bit Snapdragon 615 SoC, 2GB RAM, 12MP camera and 4.8MP front shooter. Codenamed Ferrari, the device was found to run a newer version of MIUI based on Android 5.0.2 Lollipop.
