Xiaomi is expected to launch a beefed up variant of the Mi 5, tomorrow. A lot of reports are tipping this new variant with two possible names “Xiaomi Mi 5s” or “Xiaomi Mi 5s Plus.” As per another teaser by Xiaomi for the upcoming device, it will feature Qualcomm’s Snapdragon Sense ID, which is an ultrasonic fingerprint scanner integrated into the screen. It means that there won’t be a dedicated fingerprint sensor under Home Button or at the rear of the device. Snapdragon Sense ID will authenticate the fingerprint through the device’s screen.

Previously released teasers on Weibo suggest that the upcoming phone might feature a 64-bit Snapdragon 821 processor clocked at 2.4GHz. Several other leaks tip the device to come with a 5.5-inch full HD 1080p display with 95% NTSC color gamut, and 650 nits of brightness. It will have Adreno 530 GPU, 6GB of RAM, and 256GB storage onboard.

However, some previous reports were hinting at two more variants, probably, a 3GB RAM with 64GB onboard storage version and 4GB RAM with 128GB onboard storage. Similar to the iPhone 6s, Xiaomi might also equip the device with Force Touch technology. On the connectivity front, the phone may support 4G LTE, Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac, Bluetooth 4.2, GPS, USB Type-C and NFC support.

Xiaomi Mi 5S is expected to run Android 6.0 Marshmallow with MIUI 8 on top. Regarding the camera, the dual SIM smartphone may sport a dual-camera setup. The latest leak also revealed a 16-megapixel rear snapper along with a 4-megapixel selfie snapper. A 3,490mAh battery might back the device. There is no official confirmation on the specs yet.

It would be interesting to see if these rumors turn out to be true when Xiaomi makes the device official. What’s your take on these rumored specs? Are you looking forward to the beefed-up variant of the Mi 5? Share your thoughts through the comment section below
