Xiaomi to reveal Snapdragon 820 based flagship this year: Report

Xiaomi Mi 5

Xiaomi is rated highly in global markets and is one of the top manufacturers of the world. This means that every handset that the company launches manages to build plenty of hype, sometimes even before it is announced. Something similar is happening with the Mi 5 handset which is reportedly going to be unveiled in November this year. This comes as disappointing news after reports had pegged the smartphone to be launching by July.

According to this new report coming out of China, the handset will feature the Snapdragon 820 SoC, which is yet to be announced by Qualcomm. Apart from this, the handset is also expected to be packing a 5.5 inch Quad HD display, 4GB of RAM, 16 or 20-megapixel camera on the back and possibly even Android 5.1 Lollipop.

Although the Snapdragon 820 is unlikely to be used on this handset, it cannot be ruled out at this juncture considering how manufacturers are always pushing to get the latest hardware running on their devices. We’re eagerly waiting to see Xiaomi make an entry in the European and North American markets as its popularity transcends beyond Asia. Perhaps the Mi 5 could be the handset to change that.
