A fresh listing of the Xiaomi phones that will be heading to the European market has surfaced through the website of Eurasian Economic Commission (EEC). It reveals that the unreleased Mi Note 5 has been mentioned among other phones that may launch in Europe. Moreover, a leaked image showing the key specs and pricing to the Mi Note 5 has also appeared. Could it be launching through the upcoming May 31 Shenzhen event by Xiaomi?
Shown above is the listing of Mi Note 5 among other phones like Mi 6X, Mi MIX 2s, Black Shark gaming phone, Mi A2 and Redmi Note 5 Pro. The Xiaomi Mi A2 is also unreleased phone that is expected to debut as a successor of Mi A1 Android One phone. It is likely to rebranded version of the Mi 6X phone that was launched in China in April this year. The Mi A2 is unlikely to feature MIUI skin as it could be an Android One smartphone.
A leaked image of the promo material that has surfaced today reveals the key specifications of an upcoming Mi Note smartphone. It states that the handset houses a 5.99-inch display. Since it sports a Full Screen 2.0 design, it may feature super-slim bezels around the screen. The Snapdragon 835 SoC is present under the hood of the phone along with 6 GB of RAM. It has a native storage of 64 GB. It also features 4-axis optical image stabilization. Like the Mi Note 3, the smartphone is likely to come equipped with dual camera setup. It could be a global device as the promo image reveals it supports 43 LTE bands.
Ideally, the company should be releasing the Mi Note 4 as a successor of Mi Note 3 phone from last year. It appears that the company will be skipping the Mi Note 4 moniker because even the EEC listing reveals Mi Note 5 name. As far as pricing is concerned, the Mi Note 5 featuring 64 GB of storage and 6 GB of RAM will carry a price tag of 2,299 Yuan (~$359) in China.
Through the May 31 Shenzhen event, Xiaomi will be unleashing the Xiaomi Mi 8 smartphone and MIUI 10. However, recent reports have claimed that the event will be used to announce a variety of new products such as Xiaomi Mi 8 SE, Mi Band 3 fitness trackerand Surge S2. It is being speculated Mi Note 5 will also become official at the same event. However, none of the recently released official teasers suggest that it will be made official on Thursday this week.
