Valuations are often overrated but not revenue. No company in China has ever achieved $1bn in annual revenue quicker than the smartphone maker Xiaomi, following the launch of it’s first smartphone back in 2011.
Xiaomi fondly dubbed as the “Chinese Apple” by Chinese media is eyeing a giant IPO with a valuation of over $8 billion, but that hasn’t stopped the Chinese OEM from working on new smartphones. Less than six months into 2018, Xiaomi has already come out with Redmi S2, Xiaomi 6x, Mi A6 to name a few.
Early morning today, a list of the upcoming Xiaomi products surfaced online. The list was spotted on Eurasian Economic Commison and reveals a bunch of unreleased phones under the Redmi and Mi series. To add to it, the list also includes the Mi MIX 2s and Redmi S2 which were released earlier this month.
What’s interesting here is that the Mi Mix 2s might actually have a successor likely to be named as Mi Mix 3s, which makes us wonder whether there’ll be a Mi Mix 3.
The Redmi series too will get some new members. In addition to the already mentioned devices, Xiaomi is expected to come with the Redmi A1 and Redmi A2 as successor to previous models. Other than that there’s Redmi Note 6, Redmi Note 6A, Redmi Note 6a Prime, Redmi Note 6 Prime, Redmi 6 Plus, and Redmi 6a Plus which will replace the current lineup of Redmi smartphones.
The listing is valid upto 31 December, 2023 which means some of the devices might not even launch this year.
