According to the latest speculation, we expect to see a 5.2-inch display on the new flagship. Some are calling for a 1440 x 2560 resolution, while others expect a 1080 x 1920 display. Either way, the Snapdragon 820 SoC should be under the hood, with a quad-core CPU and the Adreno 530 GPU. 4GB of RAM is inside, along with 16GB/64GB of native storage. A fingerprint scanner is embedded inside the home button.
A 16MP camera will be adorning the back of the phone, while an 8MP front-facing snapper handles selfies and video chats. The generator keeps humming thanks to the 3030 mAh battery inside. The phone is expected to be priced at 1999 Yuan, which works out to $309 USD.
We could see a larger Xiaomi Mi 5 Plus unveiled at the same time as the Mi 5 is. This model will offer a larger 5.5 or 5.7-inch screen, carrying a 1440 x 2560 resolution. Once again, the Snapdragon 820 chipset is under the hood. 4GB of RAM and 32GB of eMMC storage is included. We once again should see a rear-facing 16MP camera, with a front-facing 8MP snapper. This phone also will have a fingerprint scanner embedded in the home button, and will be priced at 2500 Yuan or $387 USD.
