Now that the Le Max Pro is official with Snapdragon 820, other smartphone manufacturers will be eagerly waiting to unveil their big flagship smartphones with this new Qualcomm chip.

Liwan Jiang, the co-founder and Senior VP of Xiaomi revealed via his official Weibo account that the Xiaomi Mi 5 will be equipped with Snapdragon 820. He also adds that the production of the flagship will ramp up now so that the device is in stock soon after the Chinese Spring Festival, which is in February. So, it looks like the Xiaomi Mi 5 will be available to purchase soon after the phone is released officially. Hence, the company probably won’t be facing any stocking problems post its release.

After Liwan made this post, Xiaomi CEO Lei Jun quoted it and further added that he has been using the phone for some time. Earlier in an interview, Lei Jun had revealed that he had used the device and it was amazing. What’s even more interesting is that the post was made by an unknown Xiaomi device, which could be the Mi 5.

As for the specs, the phone will reportedly come with a 5.2-inch display with 4GB RAM, 16MP rear camera, 8MP front camera and a 3000mAh battery. Apart from Snapdragon 820 on board, rest of the specs are yet to be confirmed.

Since the phone has entered mass production, we can expect a lot more information in the coming days. So, stay tuned for more details.

      And if it’s just a look that you like, buy original SGS6, not a copy.

    Nice looks (s6 copy) best available HW and 3000mAh batter (if they don’t lie as with Mi4i, and it’s real capacity is even lower), and bit bigger price then Xiaomi used us to… The have big fan base, but i don’t think this will be their best seller.
    They still can’t compete with big producers who actually for similar money give guarantee to their buyers, and they are having similar Chinese competitors ho will produce devices with same HW and lower prices. So, Xioami is in a gap…
    Not shore they know where they would like to be.
