Your prayers answered - the Xiaomi Mi 5 is coming this February, Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 inside
Prick up your ears now, for Mr. Liwan Jiang, co-founder and VP of Xiaomi, has finally proclaimed the magic words in his personal Weibo account. "The Xiaomi Mi 5 with the latest Snapdragon 820 processor is ready and in volume production. It will be released after the Spring Festival to have enough time for stocking up." Clarifying where it's due, Spring Festival stands for China's Lunar New Year. The People's Republic is about to enter 2016 on February 8, which means the Mi 5 will be announced (and possibly released) in early February.
The Mi 5 won't be a lone star in the Chinese skyline.In case you're not familiar with the Xiaomi Mi5's rumored features and spec sheet, here's a brief recap of what to expect. Donning a full metal jacket to the party, the smartphone is a confirmed Qualcomm Snapdragon 820-powered device that's also expected to have a 5.2-inch Quad-HD resolution screen, 3 or 4GB of RAM memory, at least 32GB of eMMC storage, a 16MP camera at the back, a heavy-duty 13MP front cam, and a 3600mAh battery that gets speedily filled up with the built-in Quick Charge technology.
But even with such beastly prowess, the Mi5 won't be a lone star in the Chinese sky, for the competition has already primed itself for battle. Mere hours ago, Letv announced the Le Max Pro, a 5.5-incher of the same breed that also features a premium build, much of the same hi-end hardware, and Qualcomm's Sense ID ultrasonic fingerprint scanner — all of that at a similarly aggressive price point. It will be a duel to the death between those two, we reckon!
