Bonkers rumors - Meizu MX5 to sport 41MP camera, Xiaomi Mi5 to retain $325 tag with Snapdragon 810 CPU and QHD screen
Now, we can't talk about Chinese phones without mentioning Xiaomi, can we? After an incredibly strong year, the hot-shot company is mad with power, which it has to sustain without giving the competition any break. According to analyst Sun Chang Xu, Xiaomi's 2015 flagship, the Mi5, will pack Qualcomm's most powerful processor to date, the Snapdragon 810 octa-core 64-bit beast, along with a 5.7-inch QHD screen. Most mind-blowingly, the handset will be retaining its usual $325 Chinese price-tag. Well, that's Xiaomi for you!
Now, at this point these are just some interesting rumors with at least a nugget of credibility to them. Whether they ring true or not in the end, we're certain that 2015 will be a huge year for smartphones. Or, possibly, a huge year for huge smartphones, because most manufacturers don't see the practical point of QHD resolution displays that are below 5.5-6 inch diagonals. Other than bragging about pixel density, that is.
