Xiaomi's Might Reveal Its Snapdragon 820 powered Mi5 in November

Are you curious to know what Xiaomi has planned for the rest of 2015? A massive new leak from Chinese site Mobile-Dad may have revealed the company's road maps through the end of the year.

Xiaomi's Might Reveal Its Snapdragon 820 powered Mi5 in November

There's a lot to process here, but one device that immediately stands out is the Mi5. Xiaomi's upcoming flagship phone will apparently launch in November with an impressive Snapdragon 820 processor and a 5.5-inch Quad-HD resolution display, 4GB of LPDDR4 RAM, a 16 or 20MP main camera, a fingerprint reader, USB-C, and all that at just 5.1mm of thickness.

Moreover, the Snapdragon 820 SoC could allow Xiaomi to use Qualcomm's ultrasonic fingerprint identification system, which has the advantage of not needing a capacitive sensor or a button present anywhere on the device's body to function.

The leakster claims that the November date was decided upon because of Qualcomm's SoC roadmap. Initially, Xiaomi looked towards a summer release for the Mi5, but then decided to wait for the American chip maker's next best thing in order to challenge the domestic competition with a spec-intensive smartphone that offers the absolute best in 2015 mobile technology unless 4K-resolution screens happen, that is.

Either way, the Mi5 will go on sale before the end of the year, which is certainly a nice way to spend the past 12 months off with a bang.

Summer will be a busy season for Xiaomi, still, as the company will make an effort to stay afloat in the market with the interim Xiaomi Mi4s, a revision of its last-year flagship smartphone that comes updated with the Snapdragon 810 SoC and a 13MP camera with optical image stabilization, among other incremental improvements.

The Xiaomi Mi5 is building up to be a pretty interesting device, and if Xiaomi manages to handle the software end, particularly its MIUI OS well then we should expect another strong device from the Chinese manufacturer this year.
