Xiaomi is definitely cooking something. Rumors had speculated that Xiaomi X1 could be the name of first smartphone under this sub-brand. However, this doesn't mean that it isn't already working on other upcoming handsets. 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. It could be the Xiaomi Redmi Note 5X, based on its size. Speculations indicate that first phone under Xiaomi's new sub-brand will be this Xiaomi 5X phone, and not Xiaomi X1. The poster also reveals a lot about the device, starting from its complete specs, and even the price.
As we have reported earlier, it would feature a 5.5-inch display that is likely to deliver full HD resolution.
More leaks suggest that the Mi 5X will have dual OmniVision sensors, the OV12A10 OmniVision sensor + OV13880 OmniVision sensor, along with a front facing 5MP camera with a S5K5E8 sensor. So we assume that the poster is only speaking of the specs of the standard or basic version of the Xiaomi 5X. This definitely isn't the latest processor, however, it is one of the most powerful mid- range mobile platforms available right now. Also, the price tag clearly shows us why Xiaomi didn't go for the more expensive Snapdragon 630 instead of the Snapdragon 625. This roughly translates into $295. Rumors further suggest that Xiaomi will be launching a high-end variant of the Xiaomi Mi 5X. It seems that this image belongs to the Xiaomi 5X.

On a more somber note, a security guard reportedly died from a heart attack while trying to clear snow, according to reports. Two other people were injured after being electrocuted by a fallen power line, the statement added.
The LanMi X1 is expected to feature a Snapdragon 660 chipset, with options of 4GB/6GB RAM and 64GB/128GB storage. The battery capacity of the Mi 5X is also now not yet known.
Xiaomi is now rumored to launch a new sub-brand this month. Xiaomi's counterparts Vivo and Oppo are making huge strides in the offline market in both India and China. This move, which is unexpected from a "online only" brand, hits at a possibility of a sub brand launch, which could enable to company to deploy more products at various price tiers.
