GearBest Deals: Xiaomi Mi 5X, OnePlus 5, And More

Xiaomi officially made an appointment for 11 September, in which representatives of the Chinese company will tell and show Mi Mix 2. However, it doesn't reveal any details about the handset itself so we're still in the dark about that. The screenshots also hint that Xiaomi will launch 256 Gb internal storage variant. Various reports suggested that the smartphone will be the Xiaomi Mi A1 aka Xiaomi Mi 5X with stock Android.

It did not specific any actual launch date but it is considered routine for the Shenzhen-based company, however, to reveal new phones in late September and analysts expect to see its latest product by the end of the month. Interestingly, Apple also plans to unveil its bezel-less iPhone 8 on the same day.

Xiaomi India Managing Director Manu Kumar Jain got in on the fun, too, posting a teaser image of the phone's profile on Twitter. It may even have a dual camera system at the back.

Leaked Screenshot Suggests Xiaomi Mi Mix 2 Will Come With Snapdragon 836 SoC and Android 8.0 Oreo

What are your expectations from Xiaomi's September 5 event?

To recall, the Android One initiative by Google was meant to provide affordable, certified, stock Android smartphones to users in emerging markets coupled with the promises of smooth performance and quick updates. As far as the various leaks have indicated, the phone will feature a smaller screen form the previous iteration, coming in at 6-inches compared to the former's 6.4-inch display. These are decent scores for a mid-range smartphone with Snapdragon 625 inside.

Connectivity: 4G VoLTE, dual-band Wi-Fi 802.11ac, GPS/ A-GPS, USB Type-C port, and 3.5mm headphone jack. The new model is also expected to be supported by a 4500 mAh battery.
