According to the source, the company is planning on launching a new smartphone very soon under this new sub-brand. And not just that, we also have our first look (sort of) at the device as well. Taking a look at the image coming from the source, we can see a smartphone with a dual camera setup at the back. This resembles the newly launched OnePlus 5 for the most part. The camera sensors look identical and in fact, even the antenna bands run through the top, which again resembles the Apple iPhone 7.
Unfortunately, as of now, we have no info regarding the name which Xiaomi is planning to call it and so does the name of the smartphone in question. However, what we do know is that fact that Xiaomi is working on this new sub-brand to take on the highly popular OPPO and Vivo. Both OPPO and Vivo are BKK subsidiaries and they both have been doing an exceptional job in the offline market.
Xiaomi is a well-known brand in China when it comes to online sales, however, there is no denying that OPPO and Vivo are the champs when it comes to offline market as they both have built an amazing reputation when it comes to offline business.

We have no info if this will make it out of China to other markets like India, etc.
