Looks Like Xiaomi Mi5 Is Available In The 6GB RAM Variant As Well, For A Small Price Obviously

With 6GB RAM smartphones becoming more and more prevalent, Xiaomi Mi5, which was being offered in 4GB RAM as the highest possible configured model is now being presented to you in a 6GB RAM model, for a small fee of course.

Resellers Are Asking For $43 To Upgrade The RAM Count On Your Xiaomi Mi5 To 6 Gigs

The 3GB /4GB RAM module inside the Mi5 can be replaced with a 6GB RAM Samsung 1866MHz LPDDR4 dual channel memory, thus converting the Snapdragon 820 powered device into an absolute beast. Naturally, this will also mean that the battery consumption will be increased as well, but it also means that you will have more freedom to open up a flurry of apps without experiencing a drag in performance. If you take a look at the images below, you will see that Mi5 is successfully able to recognize the upgrade.


The rest of the specifications include a 5.15-inch that sports what the company refers to as a ‘3D ceramic’ body. Perhaps the company is attempting to give it a different name in order to match the fancy name giving that its other Android smartphone rivals have started to stamp on their mobile offerings. Let us break it down for you; in pure aesthetic terms, Xiaomi Mi5 sports a metal frame, a front and rear glass panel, and a fingerprint sensor that has been incorporated into the home button. Perhaps one of the biggest highlights of the device happens to be its rear camera sensor, with a 16MP rear shooter that has been integrated with hardware stabilization, or in other words optical image stabilization (OIS).

Xiaomi Mi5 is running the company’s MIUI custom 7 interface on top of Android 6.0 Marshmallow, and comes with weekly software updates from Xiaomi’s community. Mi5 is sort of a milestone achieved by the company because it is very first handset belonging to the firm that ships with Xiaomi’s Mi Video Calling app. This app is a new cross platform video chat app that includes live video effects and multitasking modes.

Given below are the available colors in which Xiaomi Mi5 will be sold in:

  • White
  • Gold
