Xiaomi to unveil new flagship device on January 15

The Redmi 2 isn’t the only device Xiaomi is launching this month. The young Chinese smartphone maker, which just raised US$1.1 billion at US$45 billion valuation, has also said that it’ll be launching a new flagship device this month.

Since then, January 15 is the date that’s been circling on the Internet. Apparently, this was confirmed by Xiaomi’s founder and CEO Lei Jun a few days ago on Weibo.

If there’s still any doubts, there should be none now as the Chinese company has started the countdown on its website. The announcement is set to take place on January 15, 2pm at the Beijing China National Convention Center. And looking at the teaser graphic, some part of the new device is going to be as thin as a cicada’s wing. Is it a super-slim Mi 5, or it is a Mi 4S with super-thin bezels? Regardless, we’ll find out in eight days’ time.
