You can catch the live stream below. So far, not much is known about the smartphone. We know it will sport a dual rear camera setup, we know it’s a ‘flagship’, we know it is part of a brand new series from the company, and, we know it’s a Flipkart-exclusive.
As for the rumours, the Xiaomi Mi 5X was expected to be launched in India on Tuesday after the first teasers for Xiaomi’s first dual camera smartphone in India started doing the rounds. However, Xiaomi soon after revealed the smartphone would be from a brand new series, hinting it wouldn’t follow the branding or naming schemes of the previous Redmi or Mi series of smartphones. It also implied that the Mi 5X wouldn’t be launched in the country on Tuesday.[embedded content]
When combining this revelation with earlier rumours of a Mi 5X-based Android One smartphone that was developed by Xiaomi in collaboration with Google, we have a better idea of what the Chinese manufacturer can be expected to launch on Tuesday.
Early reports indicated the smartphone would be called the Xiaomi A1, however, more recent reports indicated the name may be the Xiaomi Mi A1. We don’t have long to wait for all to be revealed, with just a few hours to the launch.
