Xiaomi Mi 5 Details Leaked, Release Date Delayed

by Martin 5

The New Year has just rolled in and new details on the highly anticipated Xiaomi Mi 5 flagship have been leaked online by popular technology analyst Pan Jiutang via Chinese social media network Weibo.

xiaomi-mi5-leaked-delayed-01It was previously rumored that the Mi 5 would be released before China’s Spring Festival or New Year but according to Pan Jiutang, it looks like we won’t be seeing Xiaomi’s new flagship until after the annual event as he mentions that Xiaomi fans will be having a “bad New Year”. It’s also revealed that while many companies will be showcasing their smartphones featuring the new Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor will be featured at the annual CES convention this week, Xiaomi and its Mi 5 won’t be part of it.

Pan Jiutang doesn’t mention when the Xiaomi Mi 5 is expected to be released but previous reports revealed that Xiaomi may be waiting until they have enough stock to meet demand before they release the Mi 5. But it should still be safe to assume that Xiaomi will release the Mi 5 sometime within the first quarter of 2016. We’ll just have to wait for an official announcement or more details to be leaked online.

    Fuck this shit… I’m going for LeTv after waiting for more than a year

  • Robkor546

    You are right. There is no point to wait any more.

    I am going to go for LeTv too. Xiaomi takes too much time to release the phone. Thats absurd

  • Minas Keshishyan

    Xiaomi sucks, don’t even wait. I did some research for almost a month and ordered Letv phone, it will arrive soon.

    If you are all bitterly in need of a new phone right this minute, then fair enough, but good lord what’s with the vitriol? I for one am going to wait and see what the other manufacturers have to show over the coming months. Pro 5 and Honor 7 are both tempting right now, as is the standard Mi Note with its OIS and pretty damn good imaging. But I can plod on with my M2 Note for a few more months whilst the new flagships are getting announced. If you get angry or distraught enough over the delay of one manufacturer’s flagship… well… just don’t?
