Xiaomi announced the Mi Note and Mi Note Pro a couple of months ago but the announcement of the successor to the ever-popular Mi 4 has yet to be made. That doesn’t mean that the flagship smartphone, most likely called the Mi 5, won’t be launching this year because, according to GizmoChina, Xiaomi could be launching this device later in the fourth quarter of this year. I wish that actually meant something to those of us living in the West.
It seems that Xiaomi’s CEO Lei Jun is quite happy about its company’s products and he is sure that the so called Apple of China is producing very high quality products. Lei Jun said that Xiaomi is very concerned about the experience and the quality of each model, so the company usually makes at least 5 or 6 prototype devices until they reach the perfection. Lei Jun posted on his Weibo about the Research and Development for the MI5, he posted a picture with Xiaomi phones, Mi2S / Mi3 / Mi4 / Mi Note and all the Redmi Series in their prototype state. Lei Jun said that they are very concerned for the user experience and the quality of each model they produce, a model tend to have five or six versions of the project to verify the perfect machine. At the Mi4 conference, Lei Jun has said that its R & D process up to 18 months, the project has gone through six generations machine.
