Xiaomi Mi 5: Release date, full specifications, price


Xiaomi Mi5, which was meant to be launched at an October 19 event, has been unveiled at this year’s Mobile World Congress (MWC) in Barcelona. the Xiaomi Mi 5 went on sale in China earlier this month. However, of the three of its variants, only two (3GB/32GB and 3GB/64GB) were made available for purchase.

Unlike the Mi 4S that spots  5-inch 1080p display and powered by an Hexa-Core Snadpragon 808 processor, Mi5 comes with a Snapdragon 820 processor running at 2.1 GHz. This is supported by 3 GB of RAM in the 32 and 64 GB models, and 4 GB of RAM in the Pro model, which packs 128 GB of internal storage.

Preliminary reports of benchmarking have surfaced from GizmoChina, which released pictures of an Mi 5 apparently undergoing two different tests. The standard (32 GB) version of the Mi 5 supposedly has an Antutu score of around 110k. On Geekbench’s single core test it reportedly scored 1901 and on the multi-core 4707.
