Xiaomi Mi5, Xiaomi Mi5 Plus to be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 820?
posted by Alan F. / Jun 07, 2015, 10:47 AM
The report states that the Mi5 and Mi5 Plus will both be powered by the Snapdragon 820 SoC, which should include a solution to the overheating issues (real or imagined) that have plagued the Snapdragon 810 chipset. The Snapdragon 820 is expected to use the 14nm FinFET process. With the Snapdragon 820 shipping to customers later in the year, the timing might be close but it is possible for Xiaomi to unveil the new phones in November with an early 2016 release in mind.
The Xiaomi Mi5 will feature a 5.2-inch 2.5D glass with a 1440 x 2560 resolution, and it appears that Xiaomi will offer two variants of the phone. One will carry 3GB of RAM and 16GB of native storage, while the other will feature 4GB of RAM paired with 64GB of internal memory. A 16MP camera adorns the back of the unit, and a fingerprint scanner is included. It is all powered by the 3000mAh battery that comes with the model. The device will measure just 6.1mm thick, slimmer than the 6.9mm Apple iPhone 6.
The Xiaomi Mi5 Plus will be equipped with a 6-inch, 1440 x 2560 resolution glass with 4GB of RAM offered on all variants. A 20MP rear camera will be aboard.
Perhaps Xiaomi will consider this pair strong enough to lead the company's long rumored expansion into North America and Europe. For now, it is all speculation. Speaking of which, the Xiaomi Mi5 is rumored to come priced at the equivalent of $371 USD.

The 810 was a big fail this year, let's hope the 820 can fix that.

So how can this phone be slimmer than the iPhone 6 and smaller than an LG G3 but they can still fit a 3000mah battery inside? It really makes me think how manufacturers are skimping us on battery size just so they can just put in a larger one next year to say they "Improved".

Have you ever owned a Xiaomi? I didnt think so. Just because something is cheaper doesn't mean it's worse. Have you ever thought that maybe other "mainstream" manufacturers are just charging you more to put more money in their pockets? More expensive doesn't mean More quality.

hahahahahha....and one more time hahahhahaha dude, first tell me what is cheap fo you, and then is there 99 or 98% of "others", which you call sub-standard!? not everyone need best spec and best quallity, but to say that cheaper is not good, it's stupid. just take 1+, Xiaomi, Meizu... and comapare it to let say SGS5 quality, and you will realise how wrong you are

Sounds like BS. I don't think SD820 will be ready at November. Most probably it could be launched Q3 with SD810. Considering Note Pro, price could be beginning from $400.

Dunno they might just go with the decacore media TEK. But I don't think they're dumb enough to go with snap 810.it was rushed and a failure. It either A) over heats bad at medium loads. Or B) is throttled so bad to avoid over heating that is slow (compared to the competition)

I saw Mediatek's roadmap. First samples of Helio X20 will be ready at December. That means first devices contain it should be ready at Q1 2016. Anyway Xiaomi choose Qualcomm over Mediatek because of protecting umbrella with it's own patents. I don't think they can wait for SD820 because Mi4 is already too old. Maybe Qualcomm could have sort out SD810's problems. Xiaomi says they are implementing SD810 v2.1 in Mi Note Pro. Or they can go to SD808 route like LG. Also if they choose SD808 they can able to make it cheap like previous Mi flagships.

"The device will measure just 6.1mm thick, slimmer than the 6.9mm Apple iPhone 6" I don't understand where the iPhone 6 fits in this article. It's not the thinnest in the world, hence not a reference and I doubt that everyone has seen it (me being one of those people)... but anyway who cares.
