Full Xiaomi and Huawei 2015 roadmap leaks with specs: Mi4s and Mate 8 next month, Mi5 for the holidays


Huawei and Xiaomi just scored the motherload of all leaks, purportedly showing their whole roadmap for the year, and if this scheme above turns out legit, the companies would undoubtedly be quite miffed about it being let out in the wild. While Xiaomi's roadmap is corroborated by tangential evidence from separate rumors about the Mi5 here and there, the Huawei part at least seems to closely resemble another roadmap that was sent to us back in November, out of which the Huawei P8 already materialized, and got reviewed by yours truly.


The Xiaomi lineup you see above is pretty impressive, too - we would allegedly have the bezel-less Mi4s announced next month, swapping the Snapdragon 801 of the Mi4 with a Snapdragon 810 chipset, and add optical image stabilization to the 13 MP camera on the back. The Mi4s is supposed to keep you warm for the Mi5, which would apparently show up in time for the holiday shopping craze, or when Qualcomm is ready to mass-produce its upcoming Snapdragon 820 chipset. The rumors for a 5.2" Quad HD display are seemingly spot-on, too, and a 20 MP camera might make a cameo, too.

These are not Xiaomi's only tricks of the trade this year, though - if the roadmap is to be believed, we will have the next-gen Xiaomi Redmi Note 2 and Xiaomi Redmi Note 2 Pro versions unveiled in July. The Redmi Note 2 Pro could come with a 5.5" 1080p screen with a 64-bit Snapdragon 615 chipset onboard. The cheaper Redmi Note 2 would sport a 5.5" HD display, and a Snapdragon 410 processor, replacing the current MediaTek chippery in the Redmi Note, but hopefully keeping the same low price. Any takers?

I'm looking forward to Xiaomi's Hongmi Note 2 Pro with FHD display. Hopefully it's priced lower than the currently available Xiaomi Mi 4i.

Yeah, not many people want the Mi4i due to lack of SD card and non-removable batt..

I'm hoping this is true. As that means we'll see the Snapdragon 820 in a device by November this year. Hopefully this years Nexus phone will have SD820 which is what I'm really after.

No P9 . It's a fake roadmap . You should look closely , if it was real many more devices would have been relished by now .

Doesn't look that fake but maybe a bit "wrong for dates" because many of them are in the pipelines.
