Xiaomi Ready With Yet Another Stunner – Mi5

Chinese mobile manufacturer is gearing up for new release in its MI flagship segment. ‘MI5’ will be surfaced on Thursday which is 31st of March 2016 and the company has made a lot of noise before the company’s handset launch. Invites were sent out for this mega event launch and the tagline read “ Everything you imagined, and more”.


If we compare the release price from China it was unveiled at 1999 Yuan or approximately Rs 21,000 and could be priced at under Rs 25,000 in India.But we’ll have to wait and see how Xiaomi prices the new Mi5 in India. Xiaomi VP Hugo Barra had confirmed that the Mi5 India launch at the Redmi Note 3 launch event. India is the second country where the Xiaomi Mi 5 is launching so quickly. It was first introduced in China and saw over 16 million pre-bookings.

Coming down to specs, we have a tad bit of idea where the company is headed as India won’t be the country where the smartphone is making it’s debut:-

Speaking of storage options there will be three variants to choose from–3GB+32GB, 3GB+64GB and 4GB+128GB storage options. The 128GB version with 4GB RAM is called as the Xiaomi Mi 5 Pro. Once again, we will have to wait and see if Xiaomi launches all three versions in India. Xiaomi Mi 5 features a 5.15-inch full HD display, and is powered by Qualcomm’s latest and most powerful Snapdragon 820 processor.

The camera shooter in Mi 5 is a whooping 16MP primary lens with 4-axis OIS and 4MP secondary camera. The smartphone comes in a metal and 3D ceramic variant. Mi 5 will run MIUI 7 based on Android 6 Marshmallow.

The phone will back a punch when we draw a comparison with all the competition around it and certainly it’s a winner but some of us would wait for its biggest rival, yep ONE Plus Three is round the corner. So the big question is, will you go for this buy or wait??
