We have had a couple of Xiaomi Mi5 leaks and now just one week before the actual release, folks at GizChina have got their hands on the Xiaomi Mi5 packaging, and now it seems that the release presentation is in their possession, which obviously gives away most of its features. The label is a crumpled piece of paper and it details out Xiaomi Mi5 features which includes the 3000mAh battery and the Snapdragon 820 SoC.
The Xiaomi Mi5 is expected to come equipped with a 5.15-inch display and a Snapdragon 820 clocked at 2.15 GHz and paired with either 3GB/4GB RAM. However, a fresh set of leaked slides from the launch presentation points at slightly different specs and this seems to be due to the very fact that Mi5 will be made available in two variants just like most of the other flagships. That being said, on the connectivity front both the variants will come with an IR blaster and NFC.
The top of the line Xiaomi Mi5 is expected to come with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal memory while the other variant seems to settle with 3GB RAM and 32GB of internal storage. The differences in the specs just doesn’t stop here, the earlier leaks pointed at a 16-Megapixel primary shooter while the latest ones reveal a 26-Megapixel camera. The 26-Megapixel sensor will come with PDAF and a F/1.6 aperture, which is the largest that has ever been on a smartphone camera.
Other specs include the USB Type C, Qualcomm 3.0 and the release date of 26th Feb. The leaked specifications might deviate from the final ones but the major innards including the Snapdragon 820 should remain the same. For reasons best known to Xiaomi, the Mi5 launch has been deliberated from quite some time, the initial launch date was rumored to be 3rd of December 2015 and later it was expected that the phone will debut at CES 2016. Now all that we can hope for is that Xiaomi will stick to its gun and launch the Mi5 on 26th of February.
