Xiaomi Mi 5 tipped to launch on 24 February

It will be interesting to see if Xiaomi manages to launch it globally this time around, or will stick to its China first policy.

A couple of weeks ago, there were reports that Xiaomi's upcoming Mi 5 flagship will arrive in two different versions. Xiaomi's Senior VP Liwan Jiang has confirmed this via Weibo and further stated that the smartphone has also entered mass production and will have enough stocks at the time of its release. Recently Xiaomi surprised Mi fans by launching a contest on its Facebook page in which winners would take home the Redmi Note 3 and hinted that the device might be coming to India soon however, the launch hasn't been announced yet. However, a new rumor is now claiming that the device will have as many as four variants, when you factor in the design and memory configuration. The phone will go on sale within the next week, as already confirmed. While the Mi Pad2 will be up for grabs in China starting tomorrow i.e. 26th January, Mi 5 launch has been scheduled for 25th February.

Now, it was reported quite recently that Xiaomi intends on launching the standard Mi 5 handset which will be made out of metal and glass, and the high-end variant which will sport a metal unibody design.

As per rumors, it features a 5.2-inch QHD display with a resolution expected to be 1,440 x 2,560 or 1,080 x 1,920. The smartphone is said to be running MIUI 7 based on Google's Android 6.0 Marshmallow.

At the back, the flagship handset should pack a 16-megapixel photo snapper while in the front the Mi5 will feature an 8-megapixel selfie camera. It will also have Quick Charge 3.0 technology which enables the device to speed up its charging process. This was always expected to be on the hardware specs sheet since the Mi 5 will be packing the Snapdragon 820 processor under the hood. There could be different variants of the device, 16GB, 32GB or 64GB internal storage with 3GB or 4GB of RAM. Also, feel free to let us know your comments.
