While the company invite for the event doesn’t direct to launch of a new smartphone; though the “product launch” bit definitely points to a possibility of the Mi 4 successor launch. Considering that the Xiaomi Mi 4 was launched last year in July alongside MIUI 6 version, we can expect the company to reveal the new flagship alongside its latest ROM.
