Recently, Xiaomi has started sales of a host of new and interesting devices. Considering the market response one could say that each of them is clearly a winner. This relates in large part to Xiaomi Mi Note and Xiaomi Mi Note Pro, released earlier this year (2015). Nevertheless, a couple more devices stir the imagination of Xiaomi fans worldwide, namely the Xiaomi Mi 5 and the Mi 5 Plus (Pro).
Following a number of leaks, none of which can be confirmed to be true, the Mi 5's design is rumoured to be an improvement over that of the Mi 4. While retaining its iPhone-like minimalist styling cues and premium built quality, Mi 5 is said to be even thinner at 5.1mm. While the back of the phone is supposed to feature an LED flash and a powerful, optically stabilized 16 MP Sony-sourced main camera, a very similar 13 MP unit is to be found up front. Xiaomi Mi 5 will sport an incredible 5.3 inch QHD screen with a resolution of 1440 x 2560 and an impressive per inch pixel density of 554. All of this precious display real-estate should be kept safe with a practically bezel-less Corning Gorilla Glass 4.
The Xiaomi Mi 5 is expected to arrive as a true Android powerhouse, as evidenced by the phone's 73,075 Antutu benchmark score. This is well above the Galaxy S6 or the industry-leading Samsung Note 4 scores. According to China's TENAA certification the phone will feature an octa-core processor, which will most likely be either Snapdragon 810 or 820 unit. Non-expandable internal memory will be available in ample capacity of 16 or 64 GB, depending upon your needs and usage, along with 4 GB of RAM and a Type-C microUSB connector. The power will be provided by a 3,000 mAh battery.
If you are interested in buying Xiaomi's next flagship Mi 5, we expect the phone to become available sometime around November-December 2015 in a price range of about 550-590 AUD.
