Alex Alderson,

Xiaomi has announced that it will be hosting an "Ecosystem Product Launch" event on July 15 for global audiences. The event will commence at "20:00 GMT+8", which actually means 20:00 CST and 12:00 GMT. Xiaomi will also host an equivalent event for German-speaking audiences simultaneously.

From the teaser picture, it appears as though the Ecosystem Product Launch event will showcase the Mi Smart Band 5, Mi Scooter 1S and the Mi Scooter Pro 2. Additionally, Xiaomi has teased it will be announcing TV-related hardware, which could be the Mi TV Stick and potentially a Mi Display.

The nature of the items represented by the images contained within the third digit are less clear, though. The top image looks like a rear-facing camera array with a fingerprint scanner, which may indicate that Xiaomi is planning to launch a smartphone at the event too. Likewise, the bottom image looks like a smart speaker, but it could also be the steering wheel of a go-kart.

Regardless, Xiaomi's Senior Global Product Manager has also dropped a hint that Xiaomi could be planning to launch more than just those devices, too. Replying to the company's post on its global Facebook account, Steven Bai wrote that "a mysterious surprise" is planned. Naturally, no clarification has been offered, so we shall just have to guess until next Wednesday rolls around.
