Xiaomi has been killing it oversees for the past year or so. They cater to emerging markets with their lower priced yet high quality offerings. In some markets they even out sale the juggernauts like Samsung! I have had the opportunity to use the Redmi Note 2 and while it felt a bit cheap it was a very snappy phone for the $150 price point.
Xiaomi is gearing up to release their next flagship, and rumors have the new device releasing as early as December. Qualcomm is also supposed to be releasing their all new Snapdragon 820 in late November according to the tipster who also expects the Mi5 by Xiaomi to release on December 3rd.
Another tip indicates that Xiaomi is working along side Synaptics to give the device a 3DTouch like experience called ClearForce. This feature would actually be more indepth than 3DTouch in that it will be able to zoom, scroll, pan across your screen, and wake up your device. Other rumors include a metal body for the phone, a 5.2″ QHD display, and the 820 processor from Qualcomm. If this rumor turns out to be true this could be the very first device to ship with the new Qualcomm chip. Hopefully they will be smart enough to get a hold on any overheating that might be present prior to release!
