Xiaomi Mi 5 shows up on retailer's website, complete with specs

Peter, 13 January, 2016

The Xiaomi Mi 5 will be unveiled on January 21, but GearBest already put up a page for it. The page has been taken down now, at least it listed all the juicy specs.

The Mi 5 is clearly aimed at the upcoming Galaxy S7. It will have a 5.2" QHD screen (565ppi) and run MIUI 7 (based on Android 5.1) on a Snapdragon 820 chipset with 4GB of RAM. The storage on this one was 16GB, though a 64GB option is very likely.

The phone will pack a 16MP camera on the back with dual-LED flash and an 8MP selfie camera. The battery is surprisingly big at 3,600mAh. For connectivity there are two SIMs and LTE.

These specs of the Xiaomi Mi 5 are in line with what we've seen from leaks, which may actually be the source of GearBest's info. There was nothing about the price or a second version though.
