After nearly 1.5 years of waiting for a new Xiaomi flagship, the company has finally confirmed that the Xiaomi Mi 5 will launch on February 24. We already had confirmation that the phone was launching next month from Xiaomi’s executives, however, now, we finally have a date to look forward to!
A few minutes ago, Xiaomi’s Senior VP Wanqiang Li, revealed via his official Weibo page that the company’s Spring Conference was going to be held on Feb 24. So, we can all expect to see the flagship Mi 5 at the event.
However, Mi 5 may not be the only device that could be unveiled that day. According to the leaked presentation images, the company has kept the main event for two hours long. If it was just for Xiaomi Mi 5’s launch, it should have been shorter. So, many are speculating that we might see more than one launch at the Feb 24 event. The leak reveals that the event will go on from 2 pm to 4 pm and later on, the attendees will be given a chance for a hands-on with the launched devices.
We still don’t know what could be the other announcements on Feb 24. However, at this moment, I am sure fans will finally be relieved to hear a date for the Mi 5 launch event. Mr. Li also added that more details will be revealed on Tuesday, i.e. January 26.
Stay tuned, as I am sure we will soon receive more details about the device, both officially and unofficially!
