Earlier today, we told you that the Xiaomi Mi 5 scored an impressive 73,075 on the AnTuTu benchmark test. Now, we have a list of what is rumored to be the latest specs belonging to Xiaomi's next flagship phone. Already delayed as Xiaomi waits for the Snapdragon 820 to become available, we could see the Mi 5 launch in March as the first smartphone to carry Qualcomm's new powerhouse chipset.
The Xiaomi Mi 5 is rumored to be equipped with a 5.3-inch, 1440 x 2560 resolution screen. That combination will bring you a pixel density of 554ppi. The Snapdragon 820 SoC is powering the phone with an octa-core CPU and the Adreno 530 GPU. 4GB of RAM is inside with 16GB/64GB of non-expandable storage. A 16MP camera with a dual LED flash is on back with a fingerprint scanner on board. A USB-Type C connector will be available, and the handset is powered by a 3030mAh battery. Android 5.1.1 will be pre-installed on the Xiaomi Mi 5, with the recently announced MIUI 7 running on top.
The Xiaomi Mi 5 is expected to be offered for a price under $400 USD. Measuring just 5.3mm thin, this is going to be a svelte device that will fit in any pocket. While it all sounds great, we need to take this with a grain (or pinch) of salt since the model is unannounced. We are also looking forward to hearing about the larger-screened Xiaomi Mi 5 Plus, which could feature a 5.7-inch screen and a camera combo of 24MP/13MP from back to front.
