Hugo Barra shows off a couple of photos taken with the Xiaomi Mi 5


Xiaomi will be unveiling its new Mi 5 flagship next week, which will replace its overdue Mi 4 smartphone. Before we get to see the phone, Hugo Barra has given a little teaser with a couple of sample photos taken from their latest smartphone.

It is no secret that Hugo is proud with Xiaomi’s HDR capabilities and it is no exception on the Mi 5. With a photo taken of what looks like a palm tree, the Mi 5 in HDR mode manages to retain as many details even in its cropped out section.



In another sample, Xiaomi President Bin Lin had taken a couple of shots of a moving bird in mid-flight. The sample shots turned out to be pretty sharp, demonstrating its fast autofocus speeds even in demanding situations.



Based on Hugo’s sample image with the dimension of 4608×3456, the Mi 5 is likely to be equipped with a 16MP main camera that’s likely to be assisted with Phase Detection AF. To recap on the specs, the Mi 5 is speculated to come in 2 variants, in either Quad HD and Full HD display variants. The screen is likely to be a 5-5.2 incher and it is said to be powered by Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon 820 processor mated to either 3GB or 4GB of RAM.

The Mi 5 will be announced on 24th February and it will be making an appearance during Mobile World Congress 2016 in Barcelona. Keep it locked on to as we will be there to cover the announcement live.
