Xiaomi Mi5 Specifications,Release Date and Price
Xiaomi has unveiled its new Xiaomi Mi5 smartphone, the company’s flagship model for 2016,launched at Mobile World Congress(MWC).Xiaomi have been working on the Xiaomi Mi 5 even before the Mi4 launched. With the monstrous win of their Mi3 and Mi4 in the markets of China, Singapore, Malaysia, India and Philippines, Xiaomi is preparing hard not to loose their recently captured grounds in these countries.
The company this time has plans to launch the Xiaomi Mi 5 worldwide and not through the exclusive rights partners but through offline stores as well. Success of Mi5 and will decide Xiaomi’s future in these other countries where market is yet dominated by the other technology giants such as Samsung, Apple, LG and Sony.
Xiaomi Mi5 Specifications:
The Xiaomi Mi5 offers 5.7-inch IPS LCD multi touch display designed to keep your eyeballs stunned with QHD resolution (1,440 x 2,560 pixels) and a pixel density of around 525ppi. It boasts with 2.7GHz octa-core processor from Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 chipset. Together with a 3GB/4GB RAM, the powerful processor gives you the license to handle everything with utmost ease and pace.
Xiaomi Mi 5 is equipped with the just launched Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 with 64 bit computing and 8 CPU cores (4 Cortex-A57 and 4 Cortex-A53 cores). This processor is designed for most advance mobile user experience, that includes streaming Ultra HD 4k videos, best quality photos along with great battery life.
Xiaomi was working on the Touch ID sensor for their Mi5 since long. There were rumours that Xiaomi Mi4i would come with a Touch ID which were proved wrong when Xiaomi Mi4i was launched. We always believed Xiaomi Mi5 is going to be the first XIaomi device with the new touch sensor designed by Xiaomi and here it is.
Another level of security feature that Xiaomi is working on is the Retina Sensor which would scan an eye retina in microseconds and unlock phone. This new piece of technology is not coming out very soon as this will need some really precise retina scan technology which is still in testing phase. So its fair to assume that the next to Xiaomi Mi5 might utilize this technology.
Get ready to take your Xiaomi Mi 5 and Mi4s out for a pool party or to a beach this time. With an IP rating of 67, Xiaomi is trying hard to make this phone to be one of the best Water Resistant phones in the market. Reports reveal that Xiaomi is working really hard to give this phone a feature which lacked in their previous devices.
With phones like Sony Xperia Z series in the market, users are getting more used to the ease of water proof phones. Waterproof phone is a necessity nowadays as we use phone all time everywhere, its obviously not a bad idea to make the user feel as safe as possible about their device even while water is around.
Another new technology that is expected next year is a phone binding technology this will make a phone so sturdy that it will never break on 5-6 m falls. But that surely is not happening anytime soon for Xiaomi Mi4s, Xiaomi Mi5 or the Xiaomi Mi5 Plus.
With immense power Xiaomi Mi 5 might save your money if you are lately planning to buy a dedicated gaming console. With the deadly combination of the 4k HD video streaming and Generation Next IR Blaster, this Xiaomi device will at once be able to connect to your Ultra HD big screens wirelessly through HDMI and with the dedicated remote control to give you the real gaming experience.
With the Adreno 430 GPU the visual experience will be terrific. For high performance the Xiaomi Mi 5 will be equipped with the highest possible processor configuration i.e. Qualcomm Snapdragon 820. The latest processor does have the capacity to bring all your games into a small the Xiaomi Mi5 and Xiaomi Mi5 Plus.
With Snapdragon 820 processor, the new Xiaomi Mi 5 phone might be loaded with a 2k Ultra HD Screen. 5 inch IPS LCD capacitive touch display, and the Xiaomi Mi5 Plus with a screen size of 5.6 inches with the same pixel density as that of the Xiaomi Mi5.
We are not expecting a screen size update for Mi5 as a screen bigger than 5 inches might place the phone in the fablet category which Xiaomi would never want. Xiaomi Mi4s should be with a 5 inch screen as well.
ISOCELL powered 20.7 MP rear and 8 MP Front camera.
Sources say that Xiaomi talked about launching their 20.7 MP camera in the late 2014, rumours indicated that Xiaomi would introduce this with Mi4 but that also seems to be missing.
So the best candidate for their 20.7 MP camera would now be the Mi5 Xiaomi and the Xiaomi Mi5 Plus. To stay into the competition where buyers judge the quality of imaging by the number of Megapixel. Xiaomi Mi4s is expected with a more powerful camera than the Xiaomi Mi4, with a new image stabilisation technology.
Race of Higher Megapixels:
With the other phones like Sony Experia Z1 (20.7 MP) and the Nokia Lumia 1020 (41 MP), if we talk about the Megapixels(MP) then 16MP seems to be an old story.
And rumours also indicate that this camera update will be an ISOCELL chipped camera which means much better imaging in dark. ISOCELL allows each pixel to isolate which in turn allows the sensor to collect more light per pixel resulting in a higher lighted image.

- 1.8GHz quad-core Snapdragon 820 processor, 32GB storage, 3GB RAM, 3D curved glass body.
