Xiaomi has teased a new smartphone announcement on July 16 on Chinese social networking site Weibo. The device in question might well be the Mi 5 because quite a few leaks have taken place around the next flagship from Xiaomi.

According to a report on TechnoBuffalo, “The online invitation doesn’t reveal much, but it does offer what could be a first look at the Mi 5.”  Based on the picture, people are speculating that this could be a metal frame and given that this is a flagship device from Xiaomi, it’s not too much of an expectation to have.

Additionally Xiaomi is also expected to launch the Mi 5 Plus which is rumoured to be a 5.7-inch display with a 2K screen, compared to the 5.2-inch screen expected on the Xiaomi Mi 5.
