Several variants of the Xiaomi Mi 5 are up for sale in China, but India has only got the 32GB variant for now. In terms of design, the 32GB variant features a 3D Glass back, which gives it a premium look. Additionally, the 32GB storage variant comes powered by a 1.8GHz Snapdragon 820 chipset coupled with 3GB of RAM. In terms of other specifications, the Xiaomi Mi 5 comes with 5.15-inch Full HD display with 1080p resolution, and runs Android 6.0 Marshmallow with MIUI 7.

The smartphone also features a fingerprint scanner, which is embedded into the Home Button. In the imaging department, it sports a 16-megapixel rear camera adorned with features such as 4K video recording functionality, four-axis Optical Image Stabilisation (OIS), dual-tone LED flash and PDAF. There is a 4-megapixel selfie camera onboard. In the connectivity segment, the phone supports dual-SIM, 4G LTE, 3G, Wi-Fi, IR Blaster, NFC, and USB Type-C port. It is backed by a 3,000 mAh battery with Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0 support.

Given the pricing and specifications, we believe Xiaomi Mi 5 is going to give a stiff competition to other major flagships launched this year. It would be interesting to see what impact the Mi 5 creates in India, as it already received a great response from buyers in China.
