Xiaomi is heading to CES and we all are excited about it. Xiaomi’s Vice-President, Hugo Barra knows we are pretty excited about it and he has posted an image teasing us of their new product launching at the event.

The image has the word WBHLITCEK written against a black background and also has a countdown to the product launch. if you look at the word closely, you’ll see that the alphabets are either white or black. Spelling out the white alphabets gives you WHITE and the rest gives you BLACK. Do you have any idea what the words hint at?

Some of the comments on Weibo where the image was first posted say the word(s) probably hints at the two colors of the Xiaomi Mi MIX. The Mi MIX is already available in black and we have seen photographs of a white version.

We however think it hints at the colors of a different product entirely and not the Xiaomi Mi MIX. The poster says there are four more days before the product launch, but chances are that more teasers will be released before then.

Apart from this mysterious product, Xiaomi will be announcing a new drone, the Yi Erida, and a Yi  4K+ action camera.
