Dual-camera Xiaomi Mi 5X to be announced alongside MIUI 9 on July 26

Xiaomi is about to announce a new dual-camera handset as well as a major new version of its MIUI interface on July 26.

In particular, a dual-camera Xiaomi Mi 5X is in the works. It's fully revealed in the teasing poster and shows us a rear fingerprint scanner as well as a run-of-the-mill metal Xiaomi design. Specs-wise, rumor has it the Mi 5X will boast a 1080p 5.5-inch display and have a Snapdragon 625 ticking alongside 4 gigs of RAM under the hood. 

Additionally, MIUI 9 will also be making an appearance on July 26. We are not sure if we should expect a redesign of Xiaomi's in-house interface or not, but one thing is for certain - it will be based on Android Nougat.

Yeah, we know that Android O is coming out soon, but we highly doubt the so-called "Apple of China" will be able to hone out MIUI 9 on Android O on such a short notice.

Anyway, as we know more, so will you.

$294 for a xiaomi with SD625? who'll buy that if they can get chaper phone with same brand redmi 4 prime (SD625, 3GB RAM) = $140 redmi note 4 (SD625, 4GB RAM) = $160 and the upcoming redmi note 5 with SD660 and probably under $200 pricetag

From that spec, i think it'll be a mid-range "Redmi" 5x not a flagship series "Mi".
