Xiaomi is here again with something new up its sleeves. As per the media invites and tweets by Xiaomi, the company is gearing up for the launch of a brand new smartphone series in India on the 2nd of November. Up till now, the images only hint of a selfie-centric smartphone from Xiaomi, barring which no other information regarding this latest smartphone is available.

No points for guessing, but this measure by Xiaomi is definitely to compete with other Chinese brands like Oppo and Vivo. Further, the media invites depict an image that features a bolt, similar to the one found during the launch of MIUI 9. Also, rumors are afloat that Xiaomi might be launching MIUI 9, tailor-made for the Indian users, but the images tweeted by one of the chief officials from Xiaomi India’s official Twitter handle, promises of much more than just MIUI 9.

The company, even without declaring the name, have however mentioned as #YourBestSelfie hashtag along with the text “Your best self is within you!”

This strongly indicates that the upcoming smartphone in the new series will focus on selfie lovers and may have a good front-facing camera. Since Xiaomi will launch a selfie-centric smartphone, it indeed could be the Redmi Note 5A smartphone.

In addition to this, Xiaomi has also posted on its official forums that this brand new series “includes something you have been impatiently waiting for”. Right now, everybody’s guess of the moment is nothing but regarding what this new series of smartphones would be like.  Also, there are no new Xiaomi phones that have been launched in China recently and are due for an Indian launch. The only possibility remains that Xiaomi might introduce an entirely new series of devices in India, instead of China, this time, just like it did with the Mi A1, but there’s no concrete information about this by the rumor mills either.

Furthermore, the company Vice president, Manu Jain also posted a pic on Twitter, teasing the handset, describing the launch of the ‘best selfie smartphone’. This has further increased the suspense, and many claiming it to be the Mi Note 3.

Xiaomi’s forum post does reveal that the company will post new teasers daily, keeping the suspense increasing and upright and revealing the phone in bits and parts.
