Xiaomi Mi 5S Rumored Features Get Confirmation

We have started getting leaked photos and hearing rumors concerning the upcoming Xiaomi flagship dubbed as the Mi 5S back three months ago. That time the Xiaomi Mi 5S specs were leaked along the Xiaomi Mi Note 2 specs. So people began thinking these two handsets will be launched at the same time. But the latest conference poster of the company hinted there will be only S named products. This simply means we have all chances to get our hands on the Xiaomi Mi 5S, the Xiaomi Mi 5S Plus – its boosted version, the rumored Xiaomi Small and Xiaomi Mi TV 3S. The latter may be appear out of the list, because we have also heard the manufacturer may come with more interesting product called Xiaomi VR TV. As you see the main product we are eagerly waiting for is set to be the Xiaomi Mi 5S. We have heard tons of rumors and we have seen a number of spotted photos referring to the specs and design of this model. But have they been correct? Only a few days have been left before it’s officially announced, and it turns out those leaked specs are true.


The Xiaomi Mi 5S has been said to be packed with a Snapdragon 821 processor that has showed a respectable benchmark test result and it appeared on a teaser to showcase what a device is going to be announced in coming days. Moreover, it will sport an iPhone like 3D Touch Sensitive screen that has an under glass fingerprint scanner making the Mi 5S a pioneer in this category. There will be another debuting feature – Mi Pay with NFC chip. Besides this it has been also said the Xiaomi Mi 5S will come with a 6GB of RAM and 256GB of ROM. Though many geeks think 6GB RAM is not necessary, the smartphone makers don’t think identically. Anyway, today it was confirmed the Xiaomi Mi 5S will come with the abovementioned memory options, plus there will also be MIUI 8 based on Android 6.0.1, and a Snapdragon 821 processor clocked at 2.35GHz. Thus it turns out all our assumptions were right and we will see a beast in a few days. I guess the price tags will get an official confirmation before the phone is launched as well. Just to remind you, the Xiaomi Mi 5S is set to be available for $1999, while the Mi 5S Plus should be priced at 2999 yuan. But do you believe the Mi 5S could miss this conference at all?
