Xiaomi Mi 5S: New official teaser announces an impressive 164K AnTuTu score
According to Xiaomi, the 27th of September will be the official launch date of a new flagship phone, the Mi 5S. A new teaser released by Xiaomi yesterday shows an impressive AnTuTu score of 164,119 points, that is in line with other Snapdragon 821 based smartphones and slightly more than a recently leaked screenshot showing a score of 164,002 points for the Mi 5S.
Speaking of rumors, a picture circulating on Chinese blogging service Weibo lead to speculation that Xiaomi might also release a smaller 4 inch version of the Mi 5S on September 27th. However, we have our doubts about this. A similar rumor about a 5 inch version of the Mi 5 was outed as fake just last month.
There might be some truth to the rumor however, that the Mi 5S will integrate a pressure sensitive touch screen similar to the Apple iPhone 6s and iPhone 7. A user running a beta version of MIUI 8 on his Mi 5 found a new menu option named "3D Touch", that did not work on his phone but might be a sign of things to come according to GizmoChina.
