After releasing Xiaomi Mi 5 this year, Xiaomi are working on an updated version of Mi 5. It will be called Xiaomi Mi 5S and it will be launched before the end of this year. It will be an upgrade on the existing device both in terms of specs and also features.
Xiaomi Mi 5S will come with two new features – pressure-sensitive display and ultrasonic fingerprint sensor. Pressure-sensitive display is just like the 3D Touch found in Apple’s iPhone 6s and 6s Plus. For the ultrasonic fingerprint sensor, Xiaomi will use Qualcomm’s Sense ID ultrasonic fingerprint sensor tech which was announced back at MWC 2015 but has been used in barely any device.
There will be upgrade in the specs as well. Xiaomi will use the same 5.15″ display seen in Mi 5. But Mi 5S will have a bumped up 6GB of RAM and will also use dual rear cameras. It is safe to assume that Mi 5S will have the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon processor to go with it.
With the new features and specs, Xiaomi Mi 5S will be expected to be a top notch device. Lets wait to see if these rumours turn out to be true.
