  1. E.T.

    Perhaps wireless charging ?? (replacing all three ways of charging)

    The 3 hints that I saw (see e.g., http://weibo.com/p/1006062913709715/home?from=page_100606&mod=TAB#_rnd1427566566294):

    3. Orange background, magnifying glass and a youtube (?) icon: “… DDS, rice agents who ask to break as soon as possible.
    My guess: a smartwatch with heart rate monitoring (1), wireless charging (2), small screen & notifications (3). Different colors.
    I’m very curious about the OS.

        GizmoChina has some interesting suggestions (http://www.gizmochina.com/tag/xiaomi): The Xiaomi MiPad 2 (because the official Xiaomi MiPad Weibo account says “I will be shown at the event”), something to do with women fashion (collaboration with somans Fashion Group) and smart scales (based on teaser #4)
