Xiaomi announces big launch event on September 15

Xiaomi announces launch event on September 15
We've got a solid date for the next launch event that Chinese electronics company Xiaomi is planning for us. It seems they've got something interesting in store for next month, as they've officially let us know to save the date on September 15, when Xiaomi "will be announcing some very exciting new products."

As it turns out, the September 15 event is coming barely a month after the last big launch by Xiaomi, which was on August 10 and marked a full ten-year anniversary of the Chinese electronics company's existence. That event had turned out quite exciting for some, as along with celebrating a decade of growth for Xiaomi, one of its highlights had also included the launch of the foldable flagship Xiaomi Mi Mix 4.

Where to watch the Xiaomi event on September 15


The downside during Xiaomi's last August 10 event was that the livestream was limited to Chinese viewership only, but it seems this won't be the case this time around. In the early bird heads-up the company gave us via e-mail, it announced that the launch event will be livestreamed across their official social media accounts, namely Twitter, YouTube, and Facebook.

The livestream will officially begin at 8:00PM (GMT+8) on Wednesday, September 15, and will last somewhere around 70 minutes, Xiaomi told us. 

What is Xiaomi launching on September 15?


Unfortunately, the company didn't share with us any further details just yet, apart from telling us when and where they will be livestreaming the launch. The company did just release a major flagship (the Mi Mix 4), but we're still awaiting the launch of the Mi 11T, whose predecessor (the Mi 10T series) was released near the end of September last year.

While the Xiaomi 10T sported a 144Hz LCD display last year, Xiaomi's switching things up to a 120Hz OLED screen for the Mi 11T. A recent specs leak also suggested that the 11T is going to feature a MediaTek processing chip, and a triple-lens 64MP rear camera in the back. There is also going to be a Mi 11T Pro model, but its specifications still haven't been released.

It's also possible, from what we've heard, that the Mi Pad 5 series could also be launched in Europe on September 15, the latest in a line of tablets whose last predecessor, the Mi Pad 4, launched way back in 2014—so we're excited to see the progress Xiaomi has made there. 

The Mi Pad 5, Mi Pad 5 Pro, and Mi Pad Pro 5G were already launched in the China-only livestream on August 10, but they (or at least one of the models) could make it over to Europe for a more international launch soon, from what we've heard. Although it's very doubtful that any of the models (as well as the novel Mi Mix 4) will be available in the US any time soon. 

It seems more than reasonable to expect to see the newest Mi 11T family and the Mi Pad 5 (likely in Europe) unveiled in all their glory at the launch event next month. They will most likely be accompanied by new accessories and tech devices as well, considering that the livestream will run for nearly an hour and a half in length.
