Xiaomi 5X could be the first smartphone under Lanmi sub-brand

Besides that, Xiaomi is rumoured to announce a new sub-brand, targeting the offline market. The smartphone could most probably be the - Xiaomi X1. Speculations indicate that first phone under Xiaomi's new sub-brand will be this Xiaomi 5X phone, and not Xiaomi X1.

The same report claims that Xiaomi will announce the pricing on July 26, on the same day when Meizu is announcing the Meizu Pro 7. But there's no official confirmation by the company as of now.

A slew of new leaks has revealed the specs and features of the new Xiaomi 5X, which had surfaced in a new teaser poster only recently.

Xiaomi 5X could be the first smartphone under Lanmi sub-brand

The poster was leaked a day ago. An advertisement banner of the upcoming smartphone has now leaked online. It'll have a 12MP dual rear-camera setup and a 16MP front shooter. This is a tentative pricing detail, and may be revised at the time of launch. Redmi Note 5 device images were also leaked, and this one is expected to have a full HD resolution display, but a smaller 3680mAh battery. So we assume that the poster is only speaking of the specs of the standard or basic version of the Xiaomi 5X. So, we aren't sure about the authencity of the newly leaked poster, and chances are that the specs might change in the final product. The design of the phone is a lot like the OnePlus 5 or the Oppo R11 which are considered to be iPhone 7 plus design copies. On the design front, the upcoming Xiaomi phone is expected to feature an all-metal body that looks fairly premium, despite being a mid-ranged smartphone.

Meanwhile, the Chinese smartphone maker is also planning to launch the successors of Redmi 4, Redmi Note 4 and Redmi 4A.

As it can be seen that the Xiaomi has struck a deal with popular Chinese celebrity, Kris Wu for promoting the Xiaomi 5X. Interestingly the leaked poster, which mentions Xiaomi Mi 5X says the phone will have a Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 processor and 4GB RAM, not the 660 one mentioned in the report. If the price tag is true, then it will compete with the likes of Oppo and Vivo, which are giving a tough competition to Xiaomi in Mainland China.
