New Xiaomi Phones Incoming – Mi5s and Mi Note 2 Given Different Designation Numbers


To succeed the Mi5, Xiaomi is going to be announcing its Mi5s and Mi Note 2 soon enough, with their respective model numbers are already designated to each of them. Both devices are also expected to come with a slew of quick charge features, as you will read about shortly.

Both Xiaomi Mi5s and Mi Note 2 to Come With Fast Charging Features – Model Names and Supported Voltages Specified Below

The supported voltages of both Xiaomi Mi5s and Mi Note 2 have been specified in the list below:

  • 5V/2.5A
  • 9V/2A
  • 12V/1.5A

While both smartphones are going to provide support for fast charging, it has not been detailed as yet if both devices will provide support for Qualcomm’s Quick Charge 3.0, or if Xiaomi will introduce its own proprietary technology in the foreseeable future like OnePlus did. For either cases, you will need compatible accessories, so make sure that you take care of those accessories in the same manner that you take care of your smartphones. As for the designation numbers of Xiaomi Mi5s and Mi Note 2, they have been listed below:

  • Mis5: 2016070
  • Mi Note 2: 2016080

Xiaomi did state that it was going to release a premium flagship smartphone in the future whose retail price could go up to $600. If you haven’t noticed this, there are some features present in high-end flagship smartphones that you do not find on the company’s flagship devices, and that’s probably the Chinese OEM wants to save as much cash as it possibly can. Therefore, we believe that a $600 Xiaomi smartphone could feature a waterproof chassis with an IP68 certification. Additionally, we could also be looking at dual cameras and better performing camera sensors in general.

With OLED displays becoming quite popular amongst manufacturers thanks to being efficient and producing rich and vibrant colors, we could see this panel mounted on either the Mi5s or the Mi Note 2 as well. However, we strongly feel that the Mi Note 2 is going to come with all of these upgrades, and hence, it could feature the $600 price tag that we’ve heard so much about. Luckily this does not mean that Xiaomi is going to stop producing cheap Android smartphones. It’s just that the firm wants to go head to head with the likes of Galaxy Note 7. We’ll update you more on this in the future, but for now, let us hope that Xiaomi announces the devices as quickly as possible.
