Xiaomi Mi5: Leaked Specs are Impressive
A popular Chinese Tech blogger just “leaked” the specifications of the upcoming Xiaomi Mi5 smartphone. If these specifications are true then we can expect the Mi5 to be a serious contender in the premium flagship space especially if Xiaomi finds a way to bring their prices down to more reachable levels.
According to the leak, the Mi5 will be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 chip paired with a super generous serving of 4GB RAM. That’s a deadly one-two knockout punch right there! Qualcomm’s latest chip with ridiculous RAM? Sign me up!
In terms of hardware and build, the Mi5 is also reported to have a 5.2-inch quad HD display, an embedded finger print scanner, a minimum of 3,000mAh for the battery, and a 16MP shooter with optical image stabilization. Those are definitely the specs that you usually see with the flagships of the likes of Samsung, Sony, and LG.
On paper our only concern is the battery life. Hopefully the Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 processor and the Quad HD display won’t suck the juices too fast that you’ll need a recharge mid-day.
