Xiaomi Mi 5 launch event hinted for November 24th
A Xiaomi event will be held next week at the China National Convention Center. Exactly what the manufacturer will reveal, however, is not yet known. Rumors and speculation are abound on Chinese social networks and even on the official Xiaomi forums.
Currently, only 500 invitations have been sent out for attendance at the event. The invites were reportedly sent out quietly and almost secretly in envelopes and golden cards for about 200 Yuan each, or roughly 30 Euros.
Potential candidates and speculation from fans and media include the reveal of the Mi 5 as the successor to the popular Mi 4. A mysterious Xiaomi "Gemini" device has appeared on Geekbench, which could be related to an upcoming Xiaomi Mi 5. The Redmi Note 2 phablet and Mi Pad 2 tablet have also been spotted at TENAA, so all of these devices are expected to be revealed sooner rather than later.
Xiaomi was recently overtaken by both Huawei and Lenovo on the list of largest Chinese smartphone manufacturers.
