Xiaomi is expected to launch its Mi 5s smartphone on September 27 in China. The company has started sending out media invites for an event on the same date. The invite has a big ‘S’ taking center stage, suggesting the device could indeed be Mi 5s. Xiaomi Mi 5S is the successor of company’s flagship Mi 5 and is rumoured to run the latest Snapdragon Qualcomm 821 processor. Report suggest the smartphone will come with 6GB RAM. According to a report on AndroidPure, the Xiaomi Mi 5s will have a 2K display with 3D Touch support and with 256 GB storage.
Earlier reports hint at a 16MP rear camera and a 4MP front camera. The smartphone is said to have a 5.5-inch. It will pack Adreno 530 GPU for graphics performance. It will run Android 6.0 Marshmallow with company’s MIUI 8. Xiaomi Mi 5s will support two nano SIM cards. The smartphone will have a big 3,490 mAh battery with Type-C USB charging just like the original Mi 5.
Xiaomi Mi 5 was company’s 2016 flaghip smartphone. The Mi 5 was launched in India soon after the China launch, although Xiaomi only introduced the 3GB RAM+32GB storage version of the phone here at a price of Rs 24,999. The phone recently got a price cut to Rs 22,999. Specifications of Xiaomi Mi 5 include: 5.1-inch full HD display, 16MP rear camera, Snapdragon 820 processor, and more. However, in our review we found the phone suffered from heating issues, the camera was definitely not worthy of flagship standards and the overall software was a major letdown.
