Xiaomi Mi5s Expected To Come With Several New Features Not Present In The Original Mi5


Looks like Mi5 was not going to be the only flagship smartphone to be introduced by the company as a Xiaomi Mi5s could also be on the cards and feature more features than the original device showcased later this year. Let us take a look at the rumored changes that are going to be incorporated inside the possible flagship.

Xiaomi Mi5s Rumored To Feature A Pressure Sensitive Display And A Newly Spec’d Fingerprint Reader

Where the original Mi5 was expected to come with a pressure sensitive display that is present on Apple’s iPhone 6s and 6s Plus and has also made its way to a Meizu Pro 6, Xiaomi Mi5s has been rumored to feature a pressure sensitive display, thus providing it with one extra feature compared to the likes of the affordable Snapdragon 820 powered smartphone. One other addition that we could be seeing from the handset is an ultrasonic fingerprint reader.

For those that don’t know, an ultrasonic fingerprint reader is said to be more accurate and blazing fast compared to a standard fingerprint reader incorporated in modern day Android handsets. As far as the rest of the specifications and design goes, we do not believe that Xiaomi is going to be investing too many resources in the matter.


Just like Mi5, Xiaomi Mi5s could sport a 3D ceramic chassis, a metal frame, a front and rear glass panel, and we could see the ultrasonic fingerprint sensor placed into the home button. One of the biggest highlights from an affordable smartphone was a 16MP shooter that featured an OIS chip and featured the ability to record 4K videos at 30FPS. We feel that if a Xiaomi Mi5s launch is imminent, it could come bearing the same features too.

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 and it too could be ported to a Mi5s. Unfortunately, we do not see the flagship featuring an expandable card slot, other than the fact that it will provide future consumers with the chance to upgrade to better internal storage models. The flash memory present inside Mi5 is based on the UFS 2.0 standard, which delivers higher read and write speeds.
