Xiaomi’s 2015 roadmap gets leaked, four devices in the works
Even though by the standards of many Xiaomi should still be considered a startup, this is a company that has come selling nothing, to being one of the three top smartphone sellers in just a few years. The company’s attention to detail in design, and its affordable approach to the market have already crowned it the king of smartphones in China. Its only problem at the moment is how close Apple is to defeating its supremacy, and a leaked roadmap shows us Xiaomi’s action plan.
Four Mi devices were just leaked in the company’s road map for the rest of the year, and there’s a lot of hot on this list. First of all we’ve got the Xiaomi Mi 4S which sports a 5-inch 1080p display, Snapdragon 810, 13 megapixel optically stabilized camera and a 5 megapixel front-facing camera. We should expect this device for a launch in June. Then we’ve got the Xiaomi Redmi Note 2 which sports more mid range specs with a 5.5-inch 720p display, Snapdragon 410, 13-megapixel primary camera and a 5 megapixel front-firing shooter. There’s also word on a Xiaomi Redmi Note 2 Pro with a 5-inch 1080p display, Snapdragon 615, and similar details to the rest on the list.
The hottest product here is the rumored Xiaomi Mi 5, which we might not see until November. We’ve got a 5.2-inch QHD display, Snapdragon 820 processor, and a 20.2-megapixel camera. This would definitely place Xiaomi in flagship territory at a time when we should expect the next-generation iPhone. We’ll keep an eye on this as it develops.
