Xiaomi Mi 5 and Mi 5 Pro Launched at MWC 2016 Price Specifications & Full Details :- The much awaited Android smartphone Xiaomi Mi 5 has been finally launched today at Mobile World Congress 2016 event which is currently happening in Barcelona. The latest device has been introduced as the successor of MI 4 which is the first phone by the company that came with a metallic build. Presented in in-depth detail by company CEO Hugo Barra, the new phones continues Xiaomi’s tradition of offering flagship features at a ridiculously low price, far cheaper than similar offerings from Samsung and Apple.
The 5.15-inch Mi 5 comes in several variants, all of which have a Snapdragon 820 processor, a 16-megapixel camera, a 4-megapixel, “large pixel” selfie cam and a 3,000mAh battery. The Snapdragon 820 is of particular importance here — it’s Qualcomm’s latest and greatest, said to be offering a 100% performance increase at just 50% the power drain (compared to the Snapdragon 810 line).
And though the design of all the variants of the device share a similar design — a bit like a reverse Samsung S7 Edge, curved back and a flat front — the 32GB and the 64GB variants have a glass back, while the top-of-the-line model, the 128GB Mi 5 Pro has a ceramic back. The Mi 5 Pro also has 4GB of RAM, while the cheaper versions come with 3GB of memory.
Other highlights include the camera’s 4-axis optical image stabilization — best in the business, Barra says — NFC support, Quick Charge 3.0 technology (offering 20% faster charging than the last generation of the tech), and a front fingerprint sensor that doubles as the home button, very similar in size and shape to the ones in Samsung.
