We’re just a couple of days away from the launch of Xiaomi’s Mi 5X, which has been confirmed to be unveiled on Wednesday, July 26. The smartphone has been rumoured to pack mid-ranged specifications such as a Snapdragon 625 SoC. We’ve already seen some teasers in the past that have revealed what the smartphone will look like, and now a new video teaser video from the company further confirms the design of the smartphone.
The Xiaomi Mi 5X video teaser confirms what we have come to know about the smartphone including a horizontal dual camera setup and a fingerprint sensor on the back. The antenna bands are pushed to the edges that gives it a very iPhone 7 Plus-like feels to it. The power button and volume controls can be seen on the right, while the SIM tray is on the left. The video also matches previous Mi 5X teasers, in that it will be offered in at least three colour variants: Gold, Black, and Rose Gold (Pink).
In terms of specifications, the Mi 5X is touted to sport a 5.5-inch full-HD display and will run on MIUI 9 based on Android 7.0 Nougat. It is expected to be powered by a Snapdragon 625 SoC coupled with 4GB of RAM. Based on the recent certification from FCC, the Mi 5X is said to sport a 3000mAh Li-Po battery. Additionally, it will also come with a USB Type-C cable with a 10W adapter (5V @2A). Some reports also hint at a Snapdragon 660 variant that will be offered with 6GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage.
Xiaomi is set to unveil the Mi 5X in China on July 26, and it is rumoured to cost around CNY 1,999 (roughly Rs. 19,000). The company last week launched the Mi Max 2 in India priced at Rs. 16,999. The Mi Max 2 highlights a large 6.44-inch full-HD (1080×1920 pixels) display, 5300mAh battery, and 4GB RAM, among other things.
