It was reported last week that Xiaomi’s upcoming flagship smartphone, the Mi 5 would be released sometime in November. According to Chinese tech blog Mobile Dad, the Mi 5 might be announced on the 5th of August instead, 3 weeks from now. Xiaomi has announced to the public that it will be holding an event on July 16th to reveal a mystery handset which some hypothesize to be the Mi 5. Some disagree with that speculation after Mobile Dad reported that Xiaomi is expected to have some kind of annual conference on August 5th, which might be the date on which Xiaomi would unveil their next flagship. Although this is a vague claim, nothing is official at this point other than the July 16th event. An earlier report mentioned the existence of the Mi 5 Plus, which might actually be released in November instead of the Mi 5. In addition there has been mixed reports on the Mi 5’s specs, and it is still unsure if it will come equipped with the Snapdragon 810 or 820 SoC.
