Dual cameras are the fad of the season, and no maker — big or small — wants to miss out on the fun.
Xiaomi may recently have announced the Mi 6 — which in itself is a rather nice phone, by the way — but the Chinese phonemaker still seems keen on more dual camera phones. It’s perhaps a litmus test to see how the market reacts, since the Mi 5X will arguably be more affordable than the Mi 6… the nomenclature, for one, suggests so.
Xiaomi seem to be going after OnePlus (the 5 in specific) among other ‘budget flagship’ phones with the Mi 5X. Xiaomi are known to refresh their existing flagship lines with newer iterations; the Mi 2S, Mi 2A, Mi 4i were some examples.
