Xiaomi holding an event on 16 July, could be the launch of the Mi 5 and Mi 5 Plus

Xiaomi is holding an event on 16th July where it is expected to unveil a new, ultra-slim device.

According to PhoneArena, the invites have been sent out with a teaser image of what seems to be the side profile of a phone. It is likely to be the launch event for the much rumored Xiaomi Mi 5 and Mi 5 Plus. 

The two phones are alleged to come with impressive imaging hardware such as a 16-megapixel rear camera for the Mi 5 and a 23-megapixel rear camera for the Mi 5 Plus. Other rumored specs include Quad-HD displays (5.2-inch for the Mi 5, 5.7-inch for the Mi 5 Plus), Qualcomm Snapdragon processors (810 for the Mi 5, 820 for the Mi 5 Plus), and quick charging support.

It is also possible that Xiaomi will be launching the successor to the Redmi Note as a leaked roadmap states that two models - the Note 2 and Note 2 Pro - are scheduled to be launched in the same time frame. Based on the listing from Chinese agency TENNA, the Redmi Note 2 comes with a 5.5-inch 720p display, 8GB internal storage space with microSD support, and a 13-megapixel rear camera.

Other possible new products which may be announced at the event include a new Redmi phone with metallic design and Full-HD display, and the Mi Band 1S with a heart rate monitor.
