New low to mid-range Xiaomi phone gets TENAA approval
On September 27th, Xiaomi is expected to introduce one or two new high-end handsets. One faction believes that this will be the Xiaomi Mi 5s and Mi 5s Plus, while others point to a message board response allegedly from Xiaomi that says those two models don't exist. Those in this camp believe that we will soon see the Xiaomi Mi Note S instead.

We might never learn which group is right until September 27th, but in the meantime we can tell you that a new Xiaomi phone has been certified by China's TENAA regulatory agency. Xiaomi 2016051 is the model number of this handset, and if this is the lone device unveiled on Tuesday, there is going to be a lot of disappointment. The specs indicate that this device is a low to mid-range unit.

The phone certified by TENAA carries a 5-inch TFT screen with a 1080 x 1920 resolution. The 2GHz deca-core CPU driving the unit practically screams out that MediaTek's Helio X20 or Helio X25 chipset is under the hood. The graphics chip will be the Mali-T880 running at 780MHz or 850Mhz. 2GB of RAM is inside along with 16GB of expandable internal storage. A 32GB capacity microSD slot is available for those seeking additional storage. Underneath the rear camera, you will find a fingerprint scanner.

A 13MP camera can be found on the back of this device, with a 5MP snapper in front for selfies and video chats. Keeping the lights on is a nice sized 4000mAh battery, and Android 6.0 is pre-installed.

As usual, TENAA has left us with a series of photos for you to check out. Feel free to do so by clicking on the slideshow below.
