‘Global Mi phone premiere’ of Xiaomi slated to take place on April 23 in India

India is very important for Xiaomi and the fact that the company has chosen the country to hold its next global smartphone launch event is enough proof of that. The Chinese giant has disclosed that a new Mi phone will be unveiled on April 23 in New Delhi.

The company’s website also notes that top ranks, namely CEO and founder Lei Jun, president and co-founder Bin Lin and VP Xiaomi Global, Hugo Barra, will all be present at the event. What the teaser doesn’t reveal is which new Mi phone the OEM plans to unveil. There really isn’t anything new in the rumor mill that we can expect.

But seeing as this will be a global launch, there’s a good chance that the unveiling is for one of the already revealed handsets which will be leaving China for the first time. The possibilities include the new Redmi 2A and the Mi Note as well as its Pro model. We’ve got our hopes high on the latter as it is Xiaomi’s latest flagship.
