Can you guess the answer to Xiaomi’s cryptic flagship phone teaser?

Chinese smartphone manufacturer Xiaomi has given us something to think about with its new launch teasers.

The video promoting Xiaomi’s launch features three raised hands tantalisingly holding nothing with one crucial element left out of three familiar phrases.

Xiaomi, Mi5, Mi4S, promo, teaser, video, bell, paper, better, Mi, launchWe’re assuming the first is either ‘light’ or ‘thin’ as both would fit the phrase and would represent a popular move for a flagship product.

The new product, rumoured to be the Mi5 or the Mi4S, will be revealed on 15 January at their launch event.
