Xiaomi announced the Mi 5 flagship yesterday. Its an amazing value for money smartphone, featuring powerful specs, all at an impressive price tag of less than $300. While the Mi 5 will first go on sale in China only, fans from other markets can also get hold of this device via third party retailers. Like expected, even Giztop has made the Xiaomi Mi 5 flagship available for pre-order on its website. So, even users outside of China can purchase the device.

As always, the pricing is higher than the retail price of the Mi 5. You can get the base version with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage from $399 on the website. There are three colors available for pre-order, namely white, black and gold.

If you are looking to get hold of the 4GB RAM + 64GB ROM version, you will have to shell out $100 more for its pre-order. This version is available in three colors as well and will cost you $499 in all for pre-order. Finally, the top end version, namely the Xiaomi Mi 5 Pro with a faster chipset, and larger 128GB storage can be pre-ordered for $599.

The first batch of Xiaomi Mi 5 units is expected to ship in March. The order shipping dates will be based on the rank of your order. Early orders will get their shipments in the first batch itself.

Specs wise, the Mi 5 turns out to be a powerful flagship. It comes with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 820 chipset on board with 3GB / 4GB RAM options depending on the variants mentioned above. There’s 32GB / 64GB  / 128GB storage options available, and there’s no MicroSD card slot, so you will be limited to the storage that the phone comes with.

            Customs tax? Shipping cost?

        • Adam Irvine

          Ye, where did you get it from for that money? AliExpress???

        • Rigge

          either you say the *trusted reseller* or you’re lying!!

        • Dontmakemelaugh.

          It’s available at ibuygou among others. I expect the prices to drop further in the coming weeks but I want to have it asap.

      • Dannysub

        Yes, I think so. As I know, it’s difficult to buy the latest Xiaomi phones in China, the price is higher than official. It’s OK for me that included customs tax and free shipping. Be careful for some low price shops. 😀

      • Monk3y

        Quite ok? Looool. If you like to bend over and get *, I have no problem with that. Price should drop to 450 dollars pretty quickly.

        • Jeff

          The price will drop 3 months later

  • .gizmochina fans
