Xiaomi Mi 5 teaser surfaces, can the phone be that far behind?
Xiaomi was rumored to be holding back the phone, waiting for the Snapdragon 820 chipset to be released by Qualcomm. Earlier reports stated that the Mi 5 would be the first smartphone to be powered by the chip. While waiting for the Snapdragon 820, Xiaomi has been rolling out variants of the Mi 4 including the Xiaomi Mi 4i and the Xiaomi Mi 4c. The latter device, already certified by TENAA, is rumored to be unveiled on September 24th, with a release on October 3rd.
Interestingly, a new set of specs has leaked for the Mi 5, and since they include the Snapdragon 810 SoC, it could mean that Xiaomi has decided it couldn't wait any longer for the Snapdragon 820 to be rolled out. The latest rumor has the Xiaomi Mi 5 coming to market with a Gorilla Glass 4 protected 5.2-inch screen, carrying a 1440 x 2560 (QHD) resolution. The Snapdragon 810 chipset is under the hood, with an octa-core CPU and the Adreno 430 GPU. 3GB of RAM is inside and the rear-camera weighs in at 16MP. Keeping the lights on is the responsibility of the 3000mAh battery, and Android 5.1 is pre-installed. And if the teaser is legit, a fingerprint sensor will also be on board.
We will be keeping our ears to the ground to see if we can pick up any clues as to whether Xiaomi has decided to go ahead with the Mi 5 now, even if it means placing the Snapdragon 810 SoC inside of it. Earlier this summer, there was talk of a November release for the flagship device Perhaps that is the timetable that Xiaomi is following.
Thanks for the tip!
