Huawei P9 and Xiaomi Mi 5 to both come with 5.2-inch AMOLED screens?
Some specs for the Huawei P9 and Xiaomi Mi 5 have been found posted on Weibo. These are two eagerly awaited high-end handsets. Right off the bat, it appears that both phones will be sporting a 5.2-inch screen. Remember when the 4.3-inch screen on the HTC HD2 seemed to be tremendously large? Both will be AMOLED displays with 2K or 4K resolution.

The handsets go their separate ways when it comes to the chipset under the hood. The Mi 5 will be powered by the Snapdragon 820 SoC, which means it will feature a quad-core CPU with Qualcomm's own Kryo cores inside. The Adreno 530 GPU will be handling graphics.  The Huawei P9 is said to be equipped with Huawei's home grown Kirin 950. Recently announced, the high-end chipset contains an octa-core CPU and the Mali-T880MP4 GPU. Both phones will come with at least 3GB of RAM, and both will have Android 6.0 pre-installed.

The information was found on the Weibo site belonging to Pan Jiutang, who is the head of research at the Shenzhen Huaqiang Electronics Research Institute. During the summer, Jiutang said that he expects the Xiaomi Mi 5 to be released late in the first quarter of 2016, as the manufacturer waits for Qualcomm to start shipping out the new Snapdragon 820 chipset. It has been 16 months since the Xiaomi Mi 4 was launched, which is a very long period between flagship models in this day and age. On the other hand, the Huawei P8 was launched last April.
