Xiaomi Mi5 Specs & Release Date

The upcoming Xiaomi Mi5 has been heavily teased over the past few weeks as the company's first crack at the fingerprint scanning technology.


According to an insider from Weibo as relayed by WCCF Tech, Xiaomi won't be needing any third-party help in fitting the feature on the Mi5. Instead, the Chinese mobile maker will be using its own version of the technology.

Rumors regarding the Mi5's support for a fingerprint scanner first saw the light of day last month, after Tech Zoom shared a leaked promotional ad for the Mi5. GSM Arena adjusted the ad's color to reveal a fingerprint design on the base of the image.

As trivial as the reveal seemed, it did suggest that Xiaomi is more than ready to adapt to the latest mobile trends.


For good measure, here are the specs of the Mi5, courtesy of Xiaomi Today:
  • 5.3-inch Quad HD (1440x2560) display with 554ppi pixel density
  • 4GB of RAM
  • 16GB or 64GB non-expandable storage
  • 16-megapixel back camera with dual-LED flash and eight-megapixel front-facing unit
  • 3,030 mAh battery
  • USB Type-C connector
  • MIUI 7 OS (Android-based)
  • The Mi5 will retail in China for ¥1,999 or approximately $316.
