Xiaomi Mi5 specs listed on a third-party e-Store

Oppomart, the $599 Xiaomi Mi5 will tout a significantly larger display than all of its predecessors – a 5.7-incher with an extremely dense resolution of 1440 x 2560 pixels (515 ppi). This puts the Mi5 in true phablet territory in terms of its physical footprint, with its dimensions reading 6.1 x 3.11 x 0.34 in (155 x 79 x 8.8 mm), which make it slightly larger than the 5.7-inch Samsung Galaxy Note 4.According to eCommerce website
Under the hood, we'll be supposedly looking at a Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 processor with four Krait 450 cores clocked at 2.7GHz and a powerful Adreno 420 GPU. Like the Mi4 before it, the Mi5 is also listed having 3GB of LP-DDR3 RAM on board, which is plenty enough at this point, and a choice between 16GB and 64GB of eMMC 5.0 on-board flash storage. The rest of the revealed specs include a 16-megapixel rear camera with wide, f/1.8 lens, along with an 8-megapixel selfie snapper at the front. Lastly, the battery packed within is with a generous capacity of 3,600 mAh.
If real, the only disappointment the Mi5 will offer is the continued lack of appropriate LTE-FDD bands for fans in the US, though folks in Europe and elsewhere would be able to make use of the super-fast radio. The fact that the Mi5 seems destined to skip on the newest Snapdragon 810 chipset can also be a problem for some, though that wouldn't at all be unlike Xiaomi. Thankfully, our experience shows that its handsets are always among the speediest on the market, so the omission of the SD810 shouldn't register as a big con.
Thanks for the tip!

The price tag is a bit steep for Xiaomi. I guess you can't complain about the price tag when they jam all that goodies in a phone. It should be a pretty good phone nonetheless.

If you go to the website of coolicool.com and search for Xiaomi mi5, you get to see the phone and what it is about incl. a movie clip of the phone and you can pre-order it even there for $499 I believe. Now which one is more correct about the phone and price, this page here or the seller coolicool

Is there no way to get this phone to work in the US? I saw this article on Android Headlines where the author is using the Mi4 on T-Mobile, but I don't quite understand what WDCMA variety on the Mi4 means.
