Xiaomi Did Not Announce An Mi5 At Their Event Today


The Mi5 has been a highly anticipated device, and all the speculation was that we would see it announced at Xiaomi’s press event today. Unfortunately this was not the case. Xiaomi instead only announced the Redmi Note 3 and the Mi Pad 2. Each of these devices are pretty exciting in their own right. The Mi Pad 2 comes with a full metal chassis,  weighs in at alight 322grams, is only 6.95mm thick, packs a 7.9″ display, quad core Intel Atom processor, 6190mah battery, and can run Android or Windows 10. The tablet is pretty affordable. The 16GB version is only $156 while the 64GB option is $203.

The Redmi Note 3 is the upgrade to the very popular Redmi Note 2 device. This phablet will house a 5.5″1080p display, MediaTek HelioX 10 chip 4,000mah battery, 13mp camera, 2GB of Ram, fingerprint reader, and a metal design. This is definitely a leap in the right direction for making their devices appeal to those of us in the US. The Redmi Note 3 is $140 for the 16GB base model, and $170 for the 32GB version. The device will launch in China on November 27th.

We Still have no word on the Snapdragon 820 sporting Xiaomi Mi5. For whatever reason they decided not to announce the phone. Maybe it isn’t ready for prime time. Hopefully this will be released soon.
