Some of these buyers may be fake, but the numbers are pretty good. Xiaomi is used to shifting high numbers and given the fact that it mostly only sells into Asia and Brazil, it is a very high number.
The handset will be released 1 March where it will retail for $262 for the base model.The Xiaomi Mi 5 has the powerful Snapdragon 820 quad-core chipset on board with 3GB / 4GB RAM and 32GB / 64GB / 128GB ROM options.
There will be a decent 16MP camera at the back with DTI technology, 4-Axis OIS and PDAF along with dual LED flash. Up front, there is a 4MP Ultrapixel camera. The display is of 5.15-inches with 1080p resolution and the battery is of 3000mAh capacity with Quick Charge 3.0. It will be nice when the outfit does push into Europe, although we suspect there will be a grey market of chinese resellers sending them to the West.
