The Xiaomi Mi 5X has been leaked all around in the past week or so, and we even have the most important specs, dates and even images of the new device.
The Mi 5X is going to be a new mid ranger from Xiaomi and it will be equipped with dual shooters on the back and a slightly improved design on the front and back. Let’s get into the details.
The new upcoming device is said to feature the Snapdragon 625 chipset paired with 4GB of RAM and possibly 32GB of onboard storage. It is also said that a slightly higher-end model might feature the Snapdragon 660 chipset while all of the other specs would stay the same.
The screen is supposed to be 5.5″ at FHD resolution. The display isn’t yet specified but we wouldn’t be surprised if it would be an AMOLED display. (We’ll find out very soon)
The device is also said to feature Xiaomi’s latest MIUI 9 on top of Android 7.1 Nougat which would make it the first device to run the latest Android software from the company’s offerings.
The 3.5mm headphone jack, USB-C port on the bottom and the speaker is already confirmed by the images that you can see above. Also, the fingerprint sensor can be found on the back as on most mid-ranger Xiaomi devices.
The camera on the back is a dual-camera setup on the back which are supposedly 12MP rear shooters while the front camera will be a 16MP shooter.
The battery is already certified by the FCC and is confirmed to be a 3000 mAh battery, this should last you a good day with average-to-normal use.
The device will supposedly launch on 26 July and it already has over 250,000 people registered for the new device. Keep in mind this is only interest based registration and not pre-order.
The price is expected to be CNY 2,000 or about $300/€255/£230.
In case you are curious about the higher-end 5X model, here’s what we can expect.
Reports say that the device will come with the same 5.5″ FHD display, UCB-C on the bottom, run Android 7.1 and MIUI 9, Snapdragon 660 chipset with 6GB RAM. The camera setup is expected to be the same while the battery might be slightly larger.
