Xiaomi Mi 5 To Be Launched by December With Snapdragon 820
After the success of Xiaomi Mi 4 earlier this year, it can be easily assumed that the company’s Mi 5 will also go the Snapdragon way when it comes to the chipset. Electronic industry analysts like Pan Jiutang had earlier predicted March, 2016 as the release date for Mi 5. However, he has changed his views to December this year, provided Qualcomm manages to supply its chipset in time.
The newest Xiaomi addition to the smartphone industry is expected to have a display of 5.2 inches along with a 1080 x 1920 resolution. Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 820 SoC is most likely to accompany a Kryo CPU core and a GPU of Adreno 530. The front camera will be of 8 MP and the main camera is expected to be of 16 MP. All of these along with a 4 GB RAM, a Type-C USB port and Android 5.1.1 are likely to be part of the package.
