Xiaomi Mi 5X Official: Mi 6 Dual Cameras, SD625, Priced At 1,499 Yuan ($220)

by Jed John 8

Xiaomi has officially launched the Mi 5X with a top notch design, decent specs line up and as an icing on the cake, the device comes with a pocket-friendly price tag. The Xiaomi Mi 5X was launched along with MIUI 9 at the event today. xiaomi mi 5x

Design & Specification – Xiaomi Mi 5X

The Xiaomi Mi 5X has a dual camera setup at the rear which is similar in configuration to that of the Mi 6, a 12MP main sensor paired with a 12MP telephoto lens. We really can’t say if the camera will be as powerful as that of the Mi 6 as the Mi 5X comes with a less powerful Snapdragon 625 instead of SD835 on the Mi 6. But the camera also features a similar 2X lossless zoom and a Portrait mode which were all available in the Mi 6. Thus, we can safely say Xiaomi installed same camera sensors as the Xiaomi Mi 6 on this cheap model.Xiaomi Mi 5X

The device features a metal unibody with well-chamfered edges and fused antenna band design at the top and bottom edges. As far as other specifications go, the Xiaomi Mi 5X is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 processor backed by 4GB of RAM while there is 64GB of storage onboard. The mid-range device sports a 5.5-inch display with a resolution of 1920 x 1080pixels. There is an average 3,080mAh battery crammed inside for long operational duration and standby time. The Mi 5X runs on Xiaomi’s latest MIUI 9 which was launched in the same event, making it the first Xiaomi model to run MIUI 9 out of the box. There is also a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor on the Mi 5X and an improved audio system.Xiaomi Mi 5X

Pricing & Availability

Talking about the price, the Mi 5X will be sold for just 1,499 Yuan (~$220) and buyers will have the option of choosing from a Black, Gold and Rose Pink color variants. The device will go on sale in China in the coming weeks and with the price tag and design, this will be one hot-selling product.

Xiaomi seems to be trying hard to grab sales right off OPPO and Vivo in the mid-range segment with this new model but it has to make enough stocks available. Don’t expect this to roll out outside China soon but if it does, India will likely be its first port of call. As regards to when that will happen, we can’t say.

    With 5.5 inches and 3,080mAh, this is a miss.

    5.2 inches or lower would have been better with 4,000mAh battery.

    • Gousgounis

      Yep.
      Add a SD660 or an SD821 and make a mi6c or a Redmi 5s, at a decent price

    No offence, but do you even read your articles before publishing? The above paragraph starts with “Similar in configuration”, changes to “exactly the same” and then “can’t say”. Which is it? Make up your mind. We can guess; we visit the site for information.

    I’ve been seeing sentences that don’t make sense in all of your articles, and given that you’ve been posting about the 5X on an almost daily basis without providing any new info most of the time, it’s becoming difficult to tolerate!

    Everything was perfect… Until I see the peocessor it uses…

  • Saku

    Simply put, this is a hybrid of Mi6 and Mi Max 2. The price tag seems feasible, but even with the “same” camera configuration, there’s no way Xiaomi will let 5x have the “same” camera prowess of Mi6. So yeah, this is a budget-midranger and it should’ve been perfect if they used 630 or 660.

  • Grochu

    Can it record video at 20fps or only in 12?

  • Wolvie

    I really don’t understand why all new release Xiaomi Phone now always come with the same exact processor SD625 ?

    Not that SD625 is a bad processor but come on xiaomi, can you be more creative with your products ?
    At least give your users a better choice phones with reasonable prices.

    It is like they selling their phones with same engine but different casing (and more expensive prices)
