Google I/O kicks off tomorrow and today we’re learning that Xiaomi will be at the event with some special announcements. Hugo Barra, a former Google employee himself, revealed the news over Twitter along with a teaser image. In that image we see what looks a lot like a remote, specifically, an Android TV remote. Google’s Android TV platform has been pretty silent in the past few months, so it’s possible they are working with Xiaomi on a new device to help breathe some life into the platform.

Of course this could be anything. We could see Xiaomi working with Google on other hardware ventures, or even announcing Google Play support for the Chinese market as we had heard in rumors last year. Regardless, we don’t have long to wait to see what it is that the two companies are working on.
