Yao Xiaomi announced a Beijing conference on May 15, which was held in May. There has been much speculation around, in this post all of our forecasts.
We are sure, Xiaomi will launch on the market sooner or later an updated version of its top range. The Pechino house has already reduced the price of the Xiaomi Mi3, the previous "S" (Xiaomi Mi2S, Xiaomi M1S) versions have been marketed at around the same price, without counting the OnePlus deal.
According to our forecasts, the Xiaomi Mi3S will use the same body as the Xiaomi Mi3 but with 3GB of RAM, Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor from 2,5 Ghz, 4G LTE connectivity and an up-to-date front camera. It would also be nice to see some special features like charging implemented on Oppo Find 7, who knows. According to some Chinese media, the Xiaomi Mi3S may already change the design, we think it will only happen in October when the Xiaomi Mi4 will probably be unveiled.
We have not yet abandoned the hope of seeing a Xiaomi tablet. The current offer includes: phones, routers, TVs, set top boxes ... a tablet would be a great move.
The first rumors have been out since last October. The specifications vary according to rumors: from Qualcomm to Mediatek to Intel, from 3G to 4G, although the general opinion is that it is a 7 inch with a design similar to the iPad Mini.
Xiaomi TV 2
April saw the launch of the 3rd generation of the Xiaomi Box with 4K video, it is perhaps time to see also a Smart TV with updated specifications. Xiaomi TV is currently being sold in China for ¥ 2999 (about 346 €), we do not expect a price change or a 4K panel, but an increase in resolution may take place.
As for the Xiaomi Mi3S, we think that the Xiaomi TV 2 will turn out to be a partial update with a main focus on the processor, probably the Nvidia Tegra K1 already adopted by the Lenovo K1 TV.
Difficult but not impossible. Competitors such as Huawei, Oppo, TCL have already made simple specimens capable of synchronizing with the phone, we are sure to see a smartwatch from Xiaomi in the near future. We do not expect much from the 1 ° version: watch, notifications, sport monitoring but a definitely competitive price.
The MIUI V5 is a great ROM but we are a bit tired to always see the same user interface look and we would like to see something newer and more modern. May 15 may be the perfect date to see an upgrade to the MIUI V6 for phones running Android 4.4 KitKat.
Forecasts for the MIUI V6 include a new UI, new icons, and a much lower use of RAM memory. We would not be surprised to see transparent menus, updated camera app and gesture features.
MIUI Express is already available for download in Beta version. It is likely that Xiaomi will build a more stable Lite version of the ROM with new features.
