The Xiaomi Mi 5 did not make an appearance during the company’s last event. The device, which has been talked about for months now, is said to be coming with the latest features and great price. At the Xiaomi event four days ago, the company introduced the Redmi Note 3, Mi Pad 2 and even a second generation Air Purifier. After the event was done, Xiaomi’s CEO Lei Jun, said that the upcoming device is worth the wait and that it is very good. How long will the company keep its customers waiting?
The Mi 4, which remains as the current smartphone of the series, has been out for over a year and many are ready to see the next one. Xiaomi is taking its time to deliver a powerful smartphone and the wait has been longer than most of its competitors, who usually take around a year to unveil their next smartphones. The Mi 5 did not make an appearance but many believe the device will still be released soon, maybe not in December but early 2016.
The specs have not been confirmed but tech sites have given us an idea on what it could bring when it is finally released. According to the sites, the device will feature a 5.3 inch display with a 2,560 x 1,440 resolution. It will have a Snapdragon 820 quad-core chipset with 4GB of RAM and 16GB or 64GB of internal storage. The device will also bring a 16 MP camera and a 3,000 mAh battery.
The rumors have not stopped and will keep surfacing until the device is finally unveiled and released. One of the many rumors suggested that the device was going to make its debut earlier this year but it didn’t because it had some issues with the processor. Now rumors are saying that the device will launch in the first month of next year, so January. The rumor makes sense as the Mi 4 has been out for a while now.
Rumored Release Dates
That isn’t the only rumored date though, one rumor indicates that the device will be shown at an event on December 3. A Chinese analyst suggested that the company will release the Mi 5 on February. These are all rumors but if any of them are true, fans will soon have the device.
Next year is going to be great for the company as they are also working on a laptop that will be offered at half the price of its competitor. The company also plans to keep expanding and taking their smartphones to other markets.
The Xiaomi Mi 5 has been the center of rumors for quite some time now, will we see it on December, January or February? Let us know in the comments.
