Xiaomi Mi 5 is the Chinese phonemaker's next-gen flagship that is expected to become one of the first handsets to use the Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 SoC. However, multiple rumors mentioned possible delays in the delivery of these new chips, so Xiaomi could delay its handset as well, or choose to use the MediaTek Helio X20 chip. 

In addition to one of the two processors named above, the rumored specs and features of the Xiaomi Mi 5 also include the following:

  • Memory/Storage: 4 GB RAM; 16 GB or 64 GB internal storage, but no microSD support
  • Display: 5.3-inch multitouch display with 2,560X1,440 pixels
  • Rear camera: 16 MP with dual LED flash
  • Battery: 3030 mAh

Xiaomi has been recently teasing the launch of two new handsets this Wednesday, one of them being the Redmi Note 2 Pro. It is unlikely to see them unveiling the Mi 5 so early, but that remains to be seen. In the meantime, we should stick with the previous rumors and expect this flagship to drop by next month.

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.
