It was last year July when Xiaomi officially announced the Xiaomi Mi 4. The handset featured some pretty impressive specs and a rather sleek-looking design which is why many are curious and excited to see what Xiaomi could bring to the table with the handset’s successor, the Xiaomi Mi 5.
Well according to the latest rumors courtesy of Leaksfly, it has been rumored that the Xiaomi Mi 5 might only see a launch later this year in November. What this means is that customers will have to wait a little more than a year before they get to see the company’s next flagship smartphone, but it seems that the wait might have a good reason behind it.
The rumors are claiming the handset will sport Qualcomm’s latest chipset the Snapdragon 820, which is why it might have been pushed towards a release in the later part of the year. Considering the power behind the Snapdragon 810, we reckon the Snapdragon 820 will be a force to be reckoned with.
Other rumored specs include a 5.5-inch QHD display made from sapphire, 4GB of RAM, a 16/20MP rear-facing camera, a fingerprint scanner, and will also be adopting the USB-C standard. It is also expected to be 5.1mm thin and if earlier rumors are to be believed, could feature a bezel-less design as well. Take it with a grain of salt for now, but hopefully by the time the handset is launched, Xiaomi will have more concrete plans about releasing its handsets stateside.
