The CEO also revealed that Xiaomi released five new mobile phones in the first half of this year and the company is planning to improve on that in the second half of the year as well as increase production to be able to meet demand for its generously priced top specced devices. According to the CEO, the second half of the year will see users getting top-end new gadgets.

Earlier statements from the tech startup had stipulated that the Xiaomi Mi 5s and Mi Note 2 would be released in the second half of this year with new innovative features like pressure touch and dual main cameras.

Rumours had claimed in the past that Xiaomi is working on a range of new devices, including a new version called Mi 5s which could feature Apple iPhone-styled 3D Touch and the Mi Note 2 which is planned as a flagship device.

Finally, Lei Jun also disclosed another cheering news that the devices which are billed for release during the second half of the year will continue with Xiaomi’s trademark affordable pricing.

Further, earlier in the day, noted Analysts Kevin Wang said that Xiaomi should be able to sell around 20 million units in the third quarter, which should hint that we should see some great devices very soon.

Xiaomi has a reputation within and outside China of producing top-end smartphones that carry extremely low price tags and this statement by Lei Jun has reassured us that we’re going to see more of that for the rest of the year.

    I think i have to thanks Xiaomi for their price and good specs.
    Without them, it is impossible to buy good spec smartphones at affordable cheap price.
    problem is they don’t produce enough qty for their redmi Note series. Oh and they don’t have international warranty.

    I had to buy from aliexpress for my redmi note 3 pro (3Gb/ 32GB) because here waiting for months always got no stock. But it is worth it, for $167 i cannot get anything descent from samsung.

    Btw i am not xiaomi employee.
