Xiaomi officially suggests that it will announce two new smartphones this week (Mi 5 and Redmi Note 2?)
Xiaomi already made it clear that it would introduce a new handset on January 15, by posting teaser images on Facebook and other social networking websites. But it looks like the company will announce not one, but two new devices on that day.

The latest teaser image unveiled by Xiaomi reads “___ is better than one,”, and shows two hands, each holding an invisible device. Thus, while we’re all expecting Xiaomi to announce the Mi 5, it looks like we could also see the Redmi Note 2 being announced on January 15 (it's not the first time we're hearing about this). 

Both the Xiaomi Mi 5 and Xiaomi Redmi Note 2 should sport 1080p displays (5.2 inches and 5.5 inches, respectively), though it appears that only the former will be considered a true flagship. Earlier today, alleged images of the Mi 5 were published, though we can’t vouch for their authenticity.

In addition to teaser images, Xiaomi also posted a video (embedded below) showing its employees’ reactions to “the new flagship product.” Some of the reactions don’t really seem genuine - even so, the idea that Xiaomi wants us to get is that its upcoming handset will wow users. We will find out in a couple of days if that's the case or not.

What are your expectations regarding Xiaomi's next smartphones?

"2015 is the year of Chinese period" - what's a Chinese period? Wait, I'd rather not know. You should've used a coma before period.

I'd rather be happy knowing its Samsung year or Apple year than hearing a Chinese knock off with no originality to have it's year. Theyre just proud of their cheap price, beyond that not at all. No R&D means no new innovation and features, so what do you expect of them pulling new tricks but some new hardware designs and Lollipop.

Anything that Xiaomi or Huawei is able to bring to the US will be legitimate contenders at just about every price point.

They said new flagship from xiaomi will cost around $370. But if this handset comes to US still many people will opt for 2years contract. LoL

Two phones? Oh, you mean 'Xiaomi Copymi' and Xiaomi Trickmi'? Nah, I don't want neither of them. I will stick with Xperia Z Ultra!

Saying 9GAG is for kids without any reason provided is like saying "writing articles on phonearena is for losers".

"____ is better than one." If we fill in the blank with 'Two' there, then it seems incorrect. "Two is better than one." is grammatically incorrect. Anyways bring it on Xiaomi, but you should nullify the release gap between China and other countries especially India.
