Xiaomi has a wide range of smartphones, and this year, in particular, has promoted some radical changes in its line. In addition to having officialized the Pocophone line under its sub-brand Poco, it decided to create another subsidiary to take care of its series of entry models, the Redmi, which went on to offer even premium devices like the Redmi K20 Pro.
The CEO of China recently revealed that the company’s smartphone series will now be split between Xiaomi and Redmi, essentially leaving the future of Pocophone uncertain. In addition, it has hinted that while the Xiaomi brand will take care of devices with new technologies, aiming to offer products to new markets around the world, Redmi will have cost-effective devices.
He then went on to identify which devices were planned for the future of both, and in the case of the main brand, we find Mi 9, Mi 9 SE, Mi Mix, and the new Xiaomi CC family. However, he has not made clear whether there are plans to officialize any new model of the Max and Note series, stating that they should not win successors, without stating categorically that it disrupted the development of those lines.
Just for remembrance, Mi Max 3 was released last year, so it’s hard to guarantee that a new generation will not show up next year, for example. On the other hand, Mi Note 3 was unveiled in 2017, and since then has had no new model being shown. Anyway, we can only wait to see the future of both.
