Back in June, Xiaomi CEO, Lei Jun made some clarifications about the company’s strategy for its product lines. The Mi series would continue its focus on flagship components and the latest innovations. The Redmi line, on the other hand, was to deliver phones with the best possible value for money.
Asides from the product lines strategy, the post also confirmed that there were no plans for the Mi Note and Mi Max series for this year. However, we now have reason to believe that that might have changed.
According to a new tweet by Ice Universe, then the Mi Note series might be coming back soon. In fact, we may get the Mi Note 10 as early as the end of October. Leaks by Ice Universe are usually accurate, so you probably should really really expect the Note 10 soon.
The Mi Note 3 is the last model from the Mi Note series, and it was released over two years ago. So, it will actually be interesting to see the series come back.
The first two generations of the Mi Note offered upper-midrange and flagship specifications. They also came with large (for the time) screens. However, Xiaomi toned down on the specifications and screen size with the Mi Note 3.
Since then, the Redmi line has been quite popular. We have seen new models of the Redmi with varying specifications. The latest in the series is the Redmi 8 which was just unveiled with a 5,000mAh battery.
For now, we await official information from Xiaomi to confirm if the Mi Note series is really coming back.
