The #Xiaomi #Mi5 smartphone might finally have a release date according to a new revelation. It is being said that the handset could be available for purchase by next month on the 3rd of December. We’ve seen release dates come and go before, so we’re treating this with plenty of skepticism unless there’s evidence to prove otherwise.
The report also mentions that the smartphone will be using Synatpics’ ClearForce technology with the onboard display. This is pretty much the same technology as 3D Touch which was introduced with the Apple iPhone 6s and the 6s Plus, while Huawei briefly showed off the feature on its Mate S flagship as well.
Apart from this tech, the Mi 5 is reportedly going to be packing a Snapdragon 820 SoC underneath, which has been rumored before as well, so we’re not exactly surprised at this point. But given that the new Qualcomm chip isn’t due until at least Q1 2016, we’re taking this bit with a pinch of salt for now. Xiaomi has certainly built up the hype and buzz for the Mi 5 smartphone and it is to be seen if the company can live up to it.
