Specs and dual camera setup 'confirmed' for Xiaomi Mi 5s

The excitement over the highly anticipated Xiaomi Mi 5s continues, and today we add some fuel to the fire with a new photo that allegedly shows the dual-camera setup for the rumored phone. Most interesting is the fact that the picture of the two cameras dovetails perfectly with a recent teaser made by Xiaomi to promote an unnamed future handset. The image published today also reveals a dual-tone LED flash. We should also point out that the photo shows the same tapered back seen on the Xiaomi Mi 5.

Also surfacing today is a screenshot allegedly from the device itself that reveals some of the specs on the phone. If the image is legit, the Mi 5s will come with Android 6.0.1 pre-installed, featuring MIUI 8 running on top. Under the hood is where the Snapdragon 821 SoC will reside, carrying a quad-core 2.35GHz CPU and the Adreno 530 GPU. This model sports 6GB of RAM and 256GB of flash memory.

The phone is also rumored to include a Force Touch enabled 5.15-inch screen with a 1080 x 1920 resolution. An ultrasonic fingerprint scanner is believed to be embedded under the glass, and thanks to the inclusion of NFC, there is support for mobile payment service Mi Pay.

We could see two different versions of the Mi 5s. The standard model could be priced at the equivalent of $300 USD. The premium Mi 5s Plus might cost the equivalent of $450 USD. Both versions could be unveiled on September 27th. Circle the date on your calendar.
