Since no less than 18 LTE bands have been confirmed, this handset should be compatible with all major 4G LTE networks in the US.

Xiaomi Mi 5 has been unveiled last week in Barcelona and now we get access to all those details that were still not clear yet. The official FAQ on Xiaomi's forum is updated on a regular basis, and most questions find their answers in a timely manner. While it is not known yet when will this handset reach the US market via official channels, it has been confirmed that Xiaomi Mi 5 is compatible with the 4G networks of all major carriers in the area.

The Chinese company has confirmed compatibility of the new flagship with no less than 18 LTE bands - 1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 5 / 7 / 8 / 12 / 13 / 17 / 18 / 19 / 20 / 25 / 26 / 27 / 28 / 29 plus 34 / 35/ 38 / 39 / 40 / 41. The color options have been detailed as well - while the 128 GB version only comes in black, the 32 GB and 64 GB variants can be acquired in black, white, or gold. 

As previously announced, the handset goes on sale in China this Tuesday and the prices range from about $305 USD for the 32 GB version to roughly $410 USD for the Pro. Unfortunately, no word on its arrival to the US yet, but we will let you know as soon as we find out.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
