Xiaomi has launched another beautiful smartphone which is filled with lots of attractive features and much more improved from its predecessor models. All the Xiaomi smartphone lovers will definitely go to overjoy with this latest upgraded model Xiaomi Mi5. Let’s see its features and specs in detail:

1. Display & Design:


Let’s start with the design of Mi5. The entire phone is built in a metal frame using premium 3D glasses with a curved design at the edges combines very ideally along with its metal frame. Mi5 comes with an elegant 5.15 inches capacitive screen with a super resolution of 1920×1080 pixels and a pixel density of 428 PPI. Xiaomi used Gorilla Glass 4 (both in front and back) to make this gorgeous screen more durable and strong. It will really look premium in anyone’s hand. The curved edges will give you the confidence to hold Mi5 firmly in your palm.

2. Dimension & Weight:


You cannot believe the weight of Mi5, it is just 129 grams. The height and the width of this phone are 5.69 inches and 2.72 inches respectively. And the thickness is only 0.29 inches (i.e. 7.25 mm). I must say, the design of Mi5 is extremely ergonometric. With its curved edges and its slim super lightweight body, it is considered to be quite good to be handled smoothly by a single hand and also very easy to carry in your pocket.

3. Camera:


The rear or main camera of this phone is a 16MP camera built with Sony IMX298 sensor and supported by a dual-LED, dual tone flash. It comes with two unique features. The first one is 4-axis optical image stabilization (OIS). This can ensure a stable image or video capture quality even your hand is not very steady. It can actually stabilize the shooting for both horizontal movement and vertical movement of your hand. The second feature is deep trench isolation (DTI) image enhancement which inbuilt in the camera sensor. This can help the camera lens to separate the red, green and blue colors more effectively. As a result, the color reproduction of your images will be superior. You can expect some good snaps from this camera even in low light condition.

The front facing camera of Mi5 is a 4MP camera comes with a large pixel sensor of 2-micron pixel. This will help the front camera to gather more light and so your selfies will look much brighter. It has the ability to capture a huge 2688 x 1512 pixels image that can help you to take a printout up to a massive size of 20 inches. Isn’t it great?

The RAM and the internal memory you will get are 3GB & 32GB consecutively. Both are good and up to the mark. There is another model of Mi5 you can get with a bigger 64GB of internal memory and a faster 2.15GHz processor.
