It seems that this launch is very important for the company as its CEO & Founder Lei Jun, President & Co-founder Bin Lin,

The successor to the Redmi 1S has already been launched in the country, and there’s still time for the launch of the Mi 5. We think that it could be the successor to the Xiaomi Redmi Note, but it could be anything and it is too early to guess the name of the device.
India is an important market for Xiaomi, and the company has accepted the fact, unlike Apple, by having a global premiere of a new, undisclosed smartphone in the country.
