Everything else is the same in both devices. The Xiaomi Mi5 borrows a lot of elements from its Mi Note series phones. It sports a 5.15-inch full HD display and both phones house Qualcomm’s latest and most powerful Snapdragon 820 processor which has a customized quad core Kryo processors clocked at 2.2GHz along with Adreno 530 GPU. In a word, the Mi5 looks elegant and with just around 7.25mm thickness and weighing around 129g, it is impressive how it has managed to have the camera flush with the plane of the body and included a 3000mAh battery.

Xiaomi is all set to bring the new flagship to the Indian market, just ahead of its fifth anniversary. Xiaomi has confirmed that the Mi 5 flagship smartphone will be launched in India on Thursday. We aren’t sure if the company will launch all variants here, or if it also plans to put on display the Mi Pad, that is competing with the iPad Air. The Mi 5 was unveiled in China at 1999 Yuan or approximately Rs 21,000 and could be priced at under Rs 25,000 in India. India is the second country where the Xiaomi Mi 5 is launching so quickly. It was first introduced in China and saw over 16 million pre-bookings.
