Xiaomi teasing big reveal at upcoming Google I/O

No hint as to whether Xiaomi's announcement will have anything to do with devices or software

The Google I/O Developer's Conference is happening this week and it's always an exciting time for announcements. Xiaomi will also be attending and it seems the company will have something to reveal during the event.

In a Tweet, Xiaomi head Hugo Barra posted a picture of what Xiaomi will be sharing, a stylised log showing the word 'IO'.

It's hard to say just what Xiaomi is going to bring to the table. Will there be a new Android UI from them, closer to the stock ROM than its MIUI 8? Will it be a new device? Could it be something besides its usual smartphones, tablets or household gadgets? Whatever it is, we're pretty sure it has something to do with Android.

We'll be keeping an eye on the proceedings though if it is a device, it's unlikely something for the US market as the company has said that it has no plans to expand to the US so soon. It's in the eventual plan, yes, but Barra has said that it might take a year or two before the company finally spreads its wings there.

Stay tuned for more updates from Google IO, Xiaomi-related or no.
