This is the Xiaomi Mi 5 (Specifications, Price)

As the media waits for the Xiaomi Mi 5 media preview to begin in Barcelona at the MWC, info from China reveals everything you need to know about the Mi 5.

As expected, there will be two versions of the Xiaomi Mi 5. However, what we didn’t see coming was an upgraded Mi 4 in the Mi 4s. The phone doesn’t quite challenge the Mi 5 with its specs, but makes for a nice budget device nonetheless.
