At the annual product launch event, if held on May 31, Xiaomi is anticipated to launch the Mi 8th anniversary edition smartphone alongside the much-rumored Mi 7 flagship smartphone. The leak also confirms the existence of Mi 8th anniversary smartphone. The product name has been spotted among other Xiaomi devices on the Chinese version of the Mi Store app. This smartphone is being rumored as the rebranded version of Mi 7 Plus. Alongside these two smartphones, Xiaomi could also launch the Mi Band 3, which was spotted on the wrist of CEO Lei Jun recently.

Adding fuel to the leaked screenshot, the box package and front panel of the alleged Xiaomi Mi 8 has also leaked in fresh pictures. It is believed that Xiaomi CEO Lei Jun had entered bet worth 1 billion yuan with business rival Dong Mingzhu in 2013. The bet was that Xiaomi will outdo Gree Electronics Appliances in volume in five years. After official confirmation of the bet from Jun and Mingzhu, Xiaomi co-founder and Senior VP Li Wanqiang posted on Weibo that the company will give away 100 Mi 8 smartphones.

Xiaomi Mi 7 is expected to feature 3D facial recognition system that will rival Apple’s Face ID. The sensor design showing the 3D face recognition module leaked in the form of a render few days back. It is expected to be powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 SoC coupled with up to 8GB of RAM and 256GB storage. Alongside the Mi 7, Mi 8th anniversary and Mi Band 3 fitness tracker, Xiaomi might also launch the Mi Max 3.

The Mi Max 2 was launched in May last year and the smartphone is due for a refresh this year. The smartphone is expected to feature a thin bezel design similar to that of Redmi Note 5 and Redmi Note 5 Pro and sport a display with 18:9 aspect ratio. There is no official confirmation on what Xiaomi plans to launch on May 31 but it will definitely be company’s biggest event yet.
