Xiaomi’s flagship, the Mi 5 is now official in India.
Announced at an event in the national capital of New Delhi, the Xiaomi Mi 5 costs 24,999 INR ($376) for the 3GB RAM/32GB ROM version.
The phone was launched a little over a month back in China (and showcased in Barcelona at the same time). The Mi 5 has been a long time coming, but at the 25k INR price point, we believe prospective buyers in India would be more than happy to shell out the asking price.
Mi 5’s screen is a 5.15-inch 1920 x 1080p display, while the insides of the phone contain the much talked about Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 SoC. A 16 mega-pixel Sony IMX298 camera on the rear lets you take beautiful photos while a 4 mega-pixel front camera looks after your selfie requirements.
All of this is powered by a 3000mAh battery. You can read our review of the Xiaomi Mi 5 to know more about the device.
The Mi 5 will go on sale for the first time in India alongside the Redmi Note 3 on Mi.com on 6th of April at 11am (the Redmi Note 3 sale starts 2pm). Interested parties are required to register beforehand; registration has already begun.
