Latest rumored Xiaomi Mi 5 specs include 5.3-inch QHD screen, SD-820, 4GB of RAM
Earlier today, we told you that the Xiaomi Mi 5 scored an impressive 73,075 on the AnTuTu benchmark test. Now, we have a list of what is rumored to be the latest specs belonging to Xiaomi's next flagship phone. Already delayed as Xiaomi waits for the Snapdragon 820 to become available, we could see the Mi 5 launch in March as the first smartphone to carry Qualcomm's new powerhouse chipset.

The Xiaomi Mi 5 is rumored to be equipped with a 5.3-inch, 1440 x 2560 resolution screen. That combination will bring you a pixel density of 554ppi. The Snapdragon 820 SoC is powering the phone with an octa-core CPU and the Adreno 530 GPU. 4GB of RAM is inside with 16GB/64GB of non-expandable storage. A 16MP camera with a dual LED flash is on back with a fingerprint scanner on board. A USB-Type C connector will be available, and the handset is powered by a 3030mAh battery. Android 5.1.1 will be pre-installed on the Xiaomi Mi 5, with the recently announced MIUI 7 running on top.

The Xiaomi Mi 5 is expected to be offered for a price under $400 USD. Measuring just 5.3mm thin, this is going to be a svelte device that will fit in any pocket. While it all sounds great, we need to take this with a grain (or pinch) of salt since the model is unannounced. We are also looking forward to hearing about the larger-screened Xiaomi Mi 5 Plus, which could feature a 5.7-inch screen and a camera combo of 24MP/13MP from back to front.

Thanks for the tip!

I agree, Xoami would be my go to phone brand I use if they were sold in America but sadly they will be hit with patent infringements. I'd even buy them and have it shipped here but they don't support USA LTE bands either.

May be they'll just like Huawei's P8, and you can also import it from South America and ofcourse from China.

not happy to hear about 5.3" screen. I prefer more pocketable form factor. I just hope they keep the overall size similar to the predecessor Mi4 by reducing the bezels as low as possible...

Now just imagine if it was 8mm with a 5000mAh battery That being said, credit to Xiaomi for not compromising on battery while making it thinner

i'm not too optimistic about it. but if it eventually true, then it'll be really great, thin and large battery, everyman's dream.

And Xiaomi's gonna slap that gorgeous 820 cpu on a crappy 16gb device. I think Xiaomi should capitalize on samsung's take on removing micro sd slots on their flagships since this is one of the features that mass android users are still using. Since there will be lesser demand, sd slot production will become cheaper in China.
