Xiaomi teases November 11th event; is the Xiaomi Mi 5 coming at last?
The Xiaomi Mi 5 has been long rumored to be the first smartphone that will employ the Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 SoC. But the only way to prove that this is true is for the company to introduce the phone and to discuss the quad-core Kryo CPU that is carried by the chipset. Could that scenario take place this coming Wednesday, November 11th?

A freshly discovered Xiaomi teaser shows the outline of a smartphone, hidden behind a red curtain with a question mark on it. In other words, whatever new smartphone model is being introduced next week, Xiaomi is not just going to give the name away. At least not without making us think about it first.

The teaser has a heading that calls the event the "Mi Dual 11," a nod to the 11/11 date that it is being held on. The image also carries a quote from the company that reads, "This time we play the big! (sic) New phone finale debut at 0:00 on November 11 onwards." Now, if we accept the idea that the word "finale" was actually supposed to be "finally," then it would make sense to crow that we will see the long awaited Xiaomi flagship on Wednesday.

Another theory has the Mi Dual 11 referring to both the Xiaomi Mi 5 and the Xiaomi Redmi Note 2 Pro. The latter is reportedly a phone carrying the same specs as the Xiaomi Redmi Note 2, but with a metal build and a fingerprint scanner.

Thanks for the tip!

I live in a cave, when is Qualcomm launching the said Snapdragon 850?

I'll only buy a smartphone with that SoC

I guess you need to wait for Snapdragon 900 which would much more powerfull.
but you need another 4 years to wait....

No, I guess you doesnt need to wait for Snapdragon 900, but you need to wait for Snapdragon 920 just for another 6 years

You should get the Kirin based phones instead of SD.

I don't think that we'll see a Mi5 annoucement before December.

That magic moment you realize by the time you can even buy a 810 powered lumia, the 820 will be out.. And it'll be cheap.. Why has nexus, xperia, lumia, and moto blown their load on last year's chip when mi5 is basically the hypest phone for no other reason than sd820?

"This time we play the big! (sic)"... 6inch or even bigger phablet? With mtk or SD midrange chip...? Or they can do with the M5 what they did with the MI Note Pro which was announced way WAY WAY before it was launched...
