Today at the launch event of Redmi Note 3, we saw a glimpse of the upcoming smartphone Xiaomi Mi 5. Xiaomi is committed to bring their handsets to India and confirming the same Mr. Vice President, Hugo Barra announced that they will be bringing the Mi5 in India next month. This was pretty exciting for me personally because since the Mi5 announcement I have been looking forward for Mi5.
Redmi Note 3 is a great package. With all metal body, big battery, decent camera, fingerprint sensor technology and above all still maintaining the affordable pricing. Most powerful Redmi as of yet.
Mi5 on the other hand was very elegant. We saw the white color variant and we are eager to have a look at the black one now. The smartphone was very light-weighted. We couldn’t spend much time with it but the experience was awesome. This was the 3GB variant which has an under-clocked Snapdragon 820 CPU. It was running on MIUI 7 based out of Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow, probably the final build. The full HD display panel looked crisp with good color reproduction. The curved edges at the back helped to hold the smartphone comfortably.
We had a look at the camera as well, but we too felt that it was not enough to judge. This was merely a quick look at the upcoming smartphone and we still are left with a lot of tests to declare it a winner. Honestly, speaking we were quite impressed by it. The Mi5 Pro with 128GB storage variant with 4GB RAM could potentially be my next smartphone. The design and spec sheet looks promising. Performance and pricing shall decide the rest but going by our liking for the Mi 4, we trust you Xiaomi. Bring it soon.
