Details on the upcoming and highly anticipated Mi5 from Xiaomi have been leaked through Chinese social media site Weibo. Xiaomi has been dominating the China smartphone market in the past two years along with becoming the biggest manufacturer in China and one of the biggest in the world in just a short amount of time.
According to the leak, the Xiaomi Mi5 will feature a 5.2-inch screen, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 processor coupled with 3GB or 4GB of RAM, a 16-megapixel rear camera, and a 3,000mAh battery. There’s also a rumor that the Mi5 may also be equipped with fingerprint ID technology. While the specifications of the Mi5 may not seem that different from its predecessor, the Mi4, it will come with the Snapdragon 810 which is widely considered as the current most powerful smartphone SoC so the performance of the Mi5 is expected to be impressive.
Additionally, a second phone was leaked today, a larger version of the Mi5 called the Mi5 Plus. According to the leak, the Mi5 Plus will feature a 6-inch 2K display with a bezel-less/borderless design as well as 4GB of RAM, 32GB of internal storage, and a 16-megapixel rear camera with optical image stabilization. No other information on the Mi5 Plus has been released but it should be expected to feature the same processor as the Mi5 as the Snapdragon 810 is the best available chip at the moment.
While the exact date of release of both devices is still unknown, it’s expected that Xiaomi will launch both devices sometime in July as they did with the Mi4 last year.
