Xiaomi has started sending invites for its next product launch in India on 5th September. The teaser shows a dual camera setup and a flagship smartphone. Xiaomi still doesn’t enclosed the name of the device, but rumours claims it as “Xiaomi Mi 5X”. With this announcement, the smartphone will become first device to launch in India with dual camera. The Xiaomi Mi 5X was first introduced in China last month for 1499 Yuan (US$ 222 / Rs. 14284 approx.). The device will be a good competitor to Vivo V7 Plus which is scheduled to launch on September 7th. Instead of dual rear cameras, this latest device from Vivo sports a dual front camera for best selfie pictures.
It will be a global launch event and Xiaomi India’s fan can register on Xiaomi website to stand a chance to get tickets for the launch. Those who are unlucky to get launch tickets can steam the entire event by just sitting at home. We’ll update the product launch event livestream video link once it is available.
