Xiaomi Teases New Flagship Ahead of January 15 Launch Event
Xiaomi is leaving no stone unturned to promote its upcoming Thursday event, where the company is likely to announce the next flagship phone.

Xiaomi's Facebook page has shared a short 15-second video that teases features of the new product. The short clip includes incomplete sentences such as "As _ as paper", "The _ the better," and "As _ as a bell." We expect that the missing words are thin, bigger, and curved in the sentences.

The Chinese company is widely expected to reveal the successor to the Xiaomi Mi 4 at the event - the Mi 5; however, an online listing on Monday of a new Xiaomi handset added new speculation ahead of the Thursday event.

Oppomart, an online reseller of smartphones, listed the Xiaomi Redmi Note 2 with complete specifications and pricing details. The listing surfaced at a time when the company has been gearing up for its first major event of 2015 - tipping the Redmi Note 2 might be launched at the same event as the Mi 5.

According to the Oppomart listing, the Redmi Note 2 is priced at $249 (Rs. 15,600 approximately) and comes with upgraded innards when compared to its predecessor, the Xiaomi Redmi Note.

It features a 5.7-inch full-HD display and boasts of a 2.5D glass screen; 64-bit octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 (MSM8939) octa-core processor; 2GB of RAM; 16GB/32GB; 13-megapixel rear camera; 5-megapixel front camera; MIUI 6 based on Android 4.4 KitKat; supports dual-SIM (Micro-SIMs), and a 3600mAh battery.

A new set of leaked images also surfaced on Monday showing purported aluminium body of the Mi 5. The leaked images claimed that the handset would sport a thickness of 5.1mm. For specifications, the Mi 5 (or also referred to as Mi 4S) smartphone is said to feature a 5.7-inch Quad-HD (1440x2560 pixels) display; a 64-bit Snapdragon 810 processor; 3GB of RAM, and a 20.7-megapixel rear camera.
