Does Xiaomi have something up its sleeve? From the way the company has been dropping hints and snippets lately it looks like it is ready to launch an ‘ultra-thin’ smartphone, the Mi5. Mi5 has been one of the hotly debated smartphones in the last couple of weeks, some people were expecting Xiaomi to unveil it at CES but the company did not participate in the event. A lot of people were disappointed as they wanted to have a hands-on experience with the nifty products introduced by the company. According to the reports the company will be unveiling its next flagship, the Xiaomi Mi5 on 15th January in China.
According to the leaked rumors, Xiaomi Mi5 will sport a 5.2/5.5-inch Quad HD display which will have a resolution of 1560x 1440 pixels. The device will most probably be powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 805, don’t be disappointed these specs are just rumors, we are hoping that the company pushes towards Snapdragon 810 processor. Mi5 will be equipped with a 3/4 GB RAM and 64 GB of internal storage. The smartphone will sport a 20.7-megapixel main camera and 8-megapixel selfie shooter. The main camera will be equipped with the Sony Exmor sensor.
The company claims that their upcoming smartphone is the thinnest one available in the market. Images leaked at the site NoWhereElse, suggest that the device will only be 5.1mm thick, which is even thinner than iPhone 6 and Samsung’s A7. Well if these rumored specifications do materialize, Xiaomi has a winner at hand which can compete and in some cases maybe even beat the smartphones by big brands.
2014 for Xiaomi was great and they want to extend this successful streak to this year too. This year the company’s goal is to bring out more great devices and they have global expansion plans too. Mi5 at first will only be available in China, maybe in a few months the company may plan to introduce it in the US and European markets.
The launch will confirm what Xiaomi has cooked up, we will update you on all the latest developments on that end. Stay tuned but do let us know what do you think about the company’s latest offering?
