After a wait of almost a month, the Xiaomi Mi 5 is finally launched for the Indian market, at Rs. 24,999 for 3GB RAM and 32GB storage variant. As of now, the device will be up for sale via Mi.com, starting from April 6. However, Hugo Barra confirmed that it will soon be available through other retailers as well.Xiaomi Mi 5

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.
