Xiaomi Mi 5s hides Qualcomm ultrasonic fingerprint sensor inside

Chinese superstar Xiaomi has just released two new flagship smartphones and, while they might be too easy to pan as yet another familiar-looking pair, the Xiaomi Mi 5s and Mi 5s Plus do have a few tricks up their sleeves, especially the smaller model. While in most cases an incremental step up from this year’s Mi 5 generation, the Mi 5s in particular has an interesting feature that is, strangely and sadly, gimped by implementation: an ultrasonic fingerprint scanner.

Xiaomi Mi Box to be company’s first US Android product

Xiaomi fans in the US might continue to be disappointed at the company’s slow US march, but next month it might get a step closer.

Instead, it will be all about the Mi Box Android TV set-top box that will allow Xiaomi to compete in the US in a market that’s relatively young and relatively unconquered, ensuring it can leave a stronger mark on consumer’s minds before it takes on the smartphone giants.

Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 tries to distance itself from clones

Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 tries to distance itself from clones

Smartphones are really starting to look alike these days. On the one hand, that might give weight to accusations of stealing/copying designs and the lack of innovation. On the other hand, it also shows the market’s tendency to gravitate towards and expect certain designs over others. Next to Samsung, Xiaomi has been one of most often criticized for imitating someone’s (really, just Apple’s) designs. With the Redmi Note 4, it is trying to say that, this time, it is quite different.

Chinese company Xiaomi has been accused of ripping off one of Jawbone's speaker designs, an accusation that isn't the least bit surprising to anyone familiar with Xiaomi's long list of 'inspired' looks. The speaker in question is the Xiaomi Mi Speaker Box, a portable Bluetooth speaker that looks strikingly similar to the Jawbone Jambox speakers.

Hugo Barra: Xiaomi still coming to the US, but not in a rush

In the Android smartphone market, few names outside of brands like Samsung, LG, and other international giants make it to headlines. China’s Xiaomi, of course, remains the exception, sparking interest and even demand in countries outside of its focus markets like China and India. Interest in Xiaomi’s smartphones in the US, however, might be waning as the company continues to drag its feet in a Western expansion. Company VP of International Hugo Barra, formerly a Google exec, reassures fans that Xiaomi still has the US in its sights. That said, it is in no rush to get there and wants to time things right or risk actually doing more harm than good to Xiaomi’s image.

Xiaomi Mi Note 2 to have dual curved edge screen variant

Curved is the new black, at least as far as screens go. With the curved Galaxy Note 7, Samsung is practically sending a message that its future flagship models will have the same non-flat surface. And while Chinese manufacturers are not exactly strangers to that design, Xiaomi, one of the most prominent among them, has so far held back. That is about to change if this Mi Note 2 leak is real, hinting that still to be announced phablet will, like its Samsung namesake, have a screen that curves at the side edges.

Xiaomi Redmi 4, Mi Note 2 specs leaked, coming later this month

Xiaomi may have just announced the Redmi Pro less than two weeks ago, but it looks like the Chinese giant has no plans to slow down any time soon. In fact, with barely a month in between announcements, Xiaomi is rumored to be revealing not one but two new models.
