Xiaomi Mi5: New Renders and Spec-List Emerge
Although we don’t have a clear view on the smartphone’s back panel, the source behind these recent renders says that the Xiaomi Mi5 will feature a 2.5D glass sheet on the front, and 3D glass covering the back panel (much like it was confirmed by Oppomart last week). The handset features a metal frame with chamfered edges, which accommodates a USB Type-C connector at the bottom, flanked by a couple of antenna bands and fine-drilled speaker grilles.
The report says that the Xiaomi Mi5 is equipped with a fingerprint scanner embedded in the home button, which claims to be the smallest and fastest sensor on the market.
Otherwise, the handset is reportedly equipped with a Snapdragon 820 SoC, 3/4GB of RAM and 32 / 64 GB of internal storage, a 5.2-inch display with a Full HD or QHD resolution, as well as a 16 MP main camera complemented by a generous 13 MP front-facing unit.
Furthermore, the smartphone reportedly draws power from a non-removable 3,600 mAh battery compatible with Quick Charge 3 via USB Type C, and runs Android 6.0 out of the box, coupled with Xiaomi’s proprietary MIUI 7 user interface.
Last but certainly not least, the variant with 32 GB of ROM and 3 GB of RAM will reportedly cost 1,999 yuan (US$ 308) whereas the beefier model with 64 GB ROM & 4 GB RAM will set customers back 2,299 yuan (US$ 354).
By now you may have noticed that not all of the handset’s alleged specifications correspond with the information leaked by Oppomart last week, and the same goes for the price. Accordingly, the online retailer briefly listed the Xiaomi Mi5 next to a considerably higher price tag of $599.
Needless to say, treat the information accordingly as it remains subject to change.
