After many, many rumours of the Xiaomi Mi 5 Plus started appearing on the Internet like wildfire, it has finally passed through TENAA – China’s equivalent of SIRIM in Malaysia. That being the case, the hardware of the Mi 5 Plus revealed there should be as official as it can be without Xiaomi itself confirming it.
Judging by the images of the Mi 5 Plus, it seems to be sporting a metal frame with a glass back, much like the Xiaomi Mi Note and Mi Note Pro. Powering the unannounced Mi 5 Plus smartphone is the brand new – yet to be released – Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor paired with 4GB of RAM. It also has a very sharp 5.7-inch 2560 x 1440 IPS display protected by Corning’s Gorilla Glass 4.
In the camera department, there’s a 13MP rear camera with dual-tone flash and a 4MP front-facing shooter. Rounding out the specifications are LTE connectivity and 64GB of (presumably) non-expandable internal storage. Although there’s no detail on the battery capacity yet, rumours are suggesting that it will pack a 3,500mAh cell.
Xiaomi’s latest flagship (maybe flagshipS?) is shaping up to be a very powerful device, although the Xiaomi Mi 5 has yet to make an appearance on TENAA as well. It should be only a matter of time before it does though, seeing how the Chinese company unveiled both the Xiaomi Mi Note and Mi Note Pro simultaneously back in January this year.
