Xiaomi will be present at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2015 event to unveil its next flagship device. The Redmi Note 2 or the Mi5 are two handsets that are speculated to get revealed at CES. The CES 2015 event will be held at Las Vegas beginning on Jan. 5.

Before the arrival of the iPhone 6 and the iPhone 6 Plus, there were rumours that both the handset will come equipped with sapphire displays, but it did not come true. According to DigiTimes, the Xiaomi Mi5 will feature a 5.7-inch display toughened with sapphire glass. The Fuse Joplin claims that Xiaomi Mi5 display will support quad HD resolution. Another thing to notice about the Xiaomi Mi5 is that it will feature very thin bezels, says PhoneArena. The handset will be powered by a Snapdragon 810 chipset and 3 GB of RAM.

Other rumours hint to the fact that the Chinese smartphone maker may launch the Redmi Note 2 handset at the CES event. PhoneArena reports that the Note 2 will come enabled with a 5.5-inch screen supporting full HD resolution. It will be either powered by 64-bit Snapdragon 615 or MediaTek MT6752 chipset along with 2 GB of RAM.

The internal storage of the device will be 16 GB and it will feature a 13 MP rear camera along with a 5 MP camera sitting at the front. The handset will come preloaded with Android v4.4. KitKat OS overlaid with MIUI 6 user interface and lastly, it will be powered by a massive 3000 mAh capacity battery.

As of this writing, Xiaomi has not confirmed anything on unveiling the Xiaomi Mi5 or the Redmi Note 2 at the CES 2015 exhibition. The Xioami Mi4 was released six months ago. PhoneArena says that unlike Sony that releases two flagship smartphones a year, the Chinese manufacturer may not roll out the Mi4 successor so soon. Since Lei Jun, the president of Xiaomi has only stated it will be releasing a new "flagship device", it is yet to be ascertained about which device he is talking about.
