Not a surprising move, as Xiaomi is known for sharing their upcoming launch events announcements on the MIUI forum pages. The Chinese manufacturer shared a teaser yesterday where we learnt that company is hosting an event in China on October 19th for the supposed Mi 5 launch.
Today, the company shared another teaser for the same day, but it doesn’t involve smartphones. The picture shows an SLR camera with a separate lens body with text. The closes translation to the text, “Better to have the lens and its body separate”, it might not be a word for word translation but should have the same meaning.
The Internet startup (that’s what they call themselves) hasn’t been shy to introduce innovation to the world in terms of most versatile product ranges. This strategy has fulfilled Xiaomi’s journey with success and looks like the company wouldn’t stop at any point. They’re just keeps growing the portfolios.
The constant growth in other markets than the smartphones has allowed Xiaomi to be a diverse firm than any other out there. Now we think the SLR and Camera body in invite means something big. Since, Xiaomi already has the Yi Camera, an affordable alternative to the Go Pro. We think a new affordable Mi SLR Camera is on the way.
It only makes sense, depicting the SLR and Camera on an invite point to something like that. Or it may be possible that we would see Mi 5 with SLR-like capability. But the text on the invite says it otherwise.
We are hoping that it’s an SLR Camera from the company. The wait would be tough now that hopes are high. What are you hoping that Xiaomi should announce on the October 19th in China? Hit us with your thoughts on the possibilities. What do you think is coming with Xiaomi Mi 5 on the day?
