Thinner Than The Rest Xiaomi Mi5 Plus Leaks On China’s Certification Agency


Xiaomi's got a big year planned for all of us so far, if the countless rumors and leaks that we have been seeing so far are accurate. The company's Mi5 is turning out to be quite a device indeed so far, with an upgraded camera, a slimmer form, and an upgraded processor. But the Mi5 isn't the only flagship smartphone that Xiaomi has in store for us this year. Following the current trend of two flagship smartphone launches, the Chinese smartphone starlet also has a Plus variant of the Mi5 in the works, and this has passed through TENAA, which is China's equivalent of the FCC.

Xiaomi's Mi5 Plus Passes Through Chinese TENAA - Comes With 6.95mm Thickness

Courtesy of the TENAA, we get to take a look at the Xiaomi Mi5 Plus today. Several features and specifications on the device that have been rumored over the past couple of months get confirmed today, while several other don't. For starters, the Mi5 Plus, and in all probability even the Mi5, will be coming with Qualcomm's Snapdragon 820, with its custom cores rumored to hit frequencies as high as 3.0 GHz. In terms of thickness, it will be surpassing Apple's iPhone 6S Plus. TENAA lists the Xiaomi Mi5 Plus with a thickness of 6.95mm, which is impressive in its own regard.

The Snapdragon 820 will be supplemented by 4GB of the latest LPDDR4 RAM on the device, which should ensure blisteringly fast speeds on the device. Screen size for the Mi5 Plus is 5.7 inches, with 2560 x 1440 resolution. Rear and front camera resolutions stand at 16 and 4MP respectively, making the Mi5 Plus match up with plenty of other flagships out there. It'll also be coming with internal storage capacity of 64 GB, which should prove sufficient for most users. The Mi5 Plus sounds to be quite a solid device so far and Xiaomi should see its standing improve in the smartphone world after the device's launch.
