Xiaomi is set to announce their Mi5 and Mi5 Plus devices soon, but the hardware of those devices has leaked ahead of schedule. Both devices look like they’ll be very capable flagship phones for 2015, asserting Xiaomi’s dominance as one of the biggest smartphone OEMs in China.
The Mi5 will be the successor to the Mi4, and it’ll sport a 5.2-inch screen, either 3 or 4 GB of RAM, and a Snapdragon 810 CPU, and rumors point towards the device incorporating some kind of fingerprint scanner. While the Snapdragon 810 is technically Qualcomm’s most powerful processor, let’s hope the device doesn’t suffer from any overheating issues.
The Mi5 Plus will be a supersized version of the Mi5, offering a 6-inch 2k screen, 4 GB of RAM, 32 GB of internal storage, and a 16 megapixel rear camera with optical image stabilization. It’s also likely going to be using the same processor as the smaller Mi5.
Release information isn’t concrete yet, but Xiaomi is likely to release the phones in July, which they typically do with the Mi line.
