The Mi5 is here!

Finally, the wait is over and I’m glad to let you know that this device is not what we’ve expected. This because of it’s design which we are not used to see when it comes to the physical buttons.  I think we need to get used to it, also because of it’s fingerprint scanner which needed to be like this or at least needed to have a button whether it looks like this or it would have another form, fact is, there’s nothing we can do!

Packed with tech breakthroughs, it’s unimaginably fast and surprisingly light. Powers on Snapdragon 820, hits an insane 142,084 AnTuTu score. Exquisite 3D ceramic body that fits a 5.15” display in a grip of a 5” device.

Processor

Xiaomi Mi 5 is equipped with the just launched Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 with 64 bit computing and 8 CPU cores (4 Cortex-A57 and 4 Cortex-A53 cores). This processor is designed for most advance mobile user experience, that includes streaming Ultra HD 4k videos, best quality photos along with great battery life.

Design

Mi 5‬ improves on all aspects of Mi Note with an even slimmer, more comfortable grip. Mi 5 has a flat line and then a curve. From an engineering perspective, the biggest challenge was to create a single surface with the curved edges so that glass to metal transitions seamlessly. We also wanted to explore other materials, which led us to 3D ceramic for the back body of #Mi5. It’s durable and resists any kind of abrasion really wall—up to 8H on the Mohs hardness scale (steel is 4 to 4.5 for comparison, while a diamond is at 10). “This is not the kind of ceramic you’ll find in plates, but high-grade nano-ceramic zirconia.” It gives the the texture of marble, without the weight.

Display

5.15” display but feels like a 5” device in hand. It packs 3000mAh of high-density juice but light at 129g

“Borderless displays are a myth—they will continue to exist,” says Hugo Barra. ‪#‎Mi5‬ has an ultra-thin bezel on its display, plus a ton of cool features, like Reading Mode and Sunlight Display. The key to having a bright display is how you light it from the back. #Mi5 has a 16LED display that is 17% more power efficient.

Camera

Camera utilizes a Sony 16MP sensor, 4-axis OIS, PDAF, DTI tech and is capable to record 4K videos, plus is has a 4MP front camera as well.

OIS technology is usually seen on larger devices because of its complicated design. ‪#‎Mi5‬ introduces FOUR-axis OIS, which is a new kind of optical image stabilization, allowing you to take great photos in low light and shaky situations. It’s a really big tech breakthrough we’ve implemented as part of #Mi5. It also ships with a Sony IMX298 sensor, one of the first devices to use this 16MP high-definition sensor. It’s our first camera featuring DTI (deep trench isolation) technology, preventing light leaks so you can get pure, clean colors.
Qualcomm Spectra image processor allows you to take 4K videos, while the front-facing camera is a 4MP shooter that gives high level of detail. And of course, your favorite Beautify feature is there to make sure you look gorgeous all the time.
