Update : Mi Pad 2 and Redmi Note 3 has gone official.
As usual Xiaomi has already confirmed some products that will be unveiled on 24 November. Xiaomi has posted the teaser images of Mi Pad 2 as well as Redmi Note 3 that was expected to launch as Redmi Note 2 Pro. Xiaomi Also indicated that a slim device will be launched (probably they are referring to Mi Pad 2).
Xiaomi launched Redmi Note 2 in August 2015, and this is why no one expected the Chinese company to launch the next version so soon. Along with the time scale, Redmi Note 3 features the almost the same tech specs, so it was rumored that it is going to be the Pro variant of Redmi Note 2 with Finger Print Sensor and Metal Moby. However, Xiaomi didn’t like that longer name, and just changed it to Redmi Note 3.
Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 will features a Finger Print Sensor, 5.5 inches Full HD display, 2GB of RAM, 16GB/32 GB ROM, Mediatek Helio X10 Chip, 13MP rear and 5MP front shooter etc.. A new variant with 3GB RAM is also expected.
Xiaomi Mi Smartwatch
Xiaomi may launch its first Mi Smartwatch on 24 November. Xiaomi’s Co-founder and president, Lin Bin wrote in Weibo Post : “Something small but powerful will arrive on 24 November.” A Chinese tech leakster “LeaksFly” also mentioned Mi Smartwatch in its post. Have a look at the screenshots.
What could possibly be small and powerful? Redmi Note 3 features a 5.5 inches display, and Mi Pad 2 is a tablet. So this could possibly be Mi Smartwatch. How about Xiaomi Mi 5? We don’t expect this in this event.
Xiaomi Mi Pad 2
Mi Pad 2 will feature full metal body, and the design looks like Nokia N1 tablet. There is also rumor that Mi Pad 2 will have dual boot option. Users would be able to use it as Windows 10 or Android tablet according to their taste. However, this rumor could remain a rumor, but Mi Pad 2 has been confirmed to launch on 24 November by Xiaomi itself.
Mi pad would feature the same 7.9 inches display with 2048 x 1536 pixels resolution, Intel Atom X5-Z8500 CPU chipset, 2GB/3GB RAM, 32GB/64GB ROM, 8MP rear and 5MP front camera etc.. We don’t expect a 16 GB Variant this time.
