It's unclear if the specifications are detailing the Mi Note 2 Pro, Mi 5s, or a completely different model, but its FHD OLED display and UFS 2.0 storage are impressive hardware nonetheless.

Xiaomi recently expressed interest in offering more high-end smartphones and fewer budget and mainstream options moving forward. The recently leaked specifications for what could potentially be the Xiaomi Mi Note 2 Pro or Mi 5s back up this sentiment with impressive numbers if proven to be true.

According to the Chinese source, an upcoming Xiaomi smartphone could feature the following specifications:

  • 5.5-inch FHD OLED panel, 96 percent AdobeRGB coverage, 500 nit brightness
  • Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 SoC
  • Up to 6 GB LPDDR4 RAM (1866 MHz)
  • 64/128 GB UFS 2.0 eMMC
  • 3700 mAh battery

The FHD OLED display will be the highlight of this yet-to-be-named Xiaomi. Interestingly, the panel is expected to be sourced from AUO instead of Samsung.

Other notable features include a 12 MP rear camera with a high-end Sony IMX260 sensor or even the Samsung ISOCELL S5K2L1 as used on the current Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge. Unlike the Samsung flagships, however, this supposed Xiaomi smartphone will have a smaller aperture of f/2.0 instead of f/1.7. Thus, performance in low-light conditions may be inferior as a result. A 4-axis optical image stabilizer (OIS) and rear fingerprint reader may also be included.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
