Xiaomi Mi 5X India release date announced

The launch event is happening in New Delhi, meaning the company will announce the India availability details of the device as well. The event would witness the launch of their gen-next dual camera smartphone. If Xiaomi Mi 5X comes to India on September 5, the phone is likely to cost in the vicinity of Rs 15,000. Our best guess is with Xiaomi Mi 5X but since they have not specifically mentioned Mi 5X, take the news with a pinch of salt.

Speaking of the software, the Mi 5X is presumed to come with MIUI 9 preinstalled on top of Android 7.1.2 Nougat. In India, the upcoming smartphone is expected to be priced more than the Redmi Note 4 and less than the Mi Max 2. The phone is aimed at the budget segment, but offers the same 12MP dual camera setup at the back as the Mi 6, which retails for $400.

The Mi 5X has two 12MP sensors at the back. The Mi 5X, just like the Mi 6, (also) comes with a dual camera setup on the rear - 12-megapixel + 12-megapixel - where one lens is wide-angle while the other is telephoto. On the front, there's a 5-megapixel camera for selfies.


In case you missed it earlier, the Xiaomi Mi 5X comes with a 5.5-inch 1080p IPS screen, Qualcomm's Snapdragon 625 SoC with 4GB of RAM and 32/64GB of storage and uses a dual 12-megapixel rear camera with 26mm, f/2.2 and 50mm, f/2.6 lenses. The storage in the phone is expandable up to 128GB with a microSD card slot. Most of these specs aren't impressive in this day and age, which means the dual cameras will have to be special to make a dent in a market flooded with dual camera smartphones. Other features include "DHS Audio Calibration Algorithm" for improved audio, a fingerprint scanner, a 3,080 mAh battery, USB Type-C and a 3.5 mm headphone jack. At this price point, the phone seems like an absolute bang for the buck.

Mi 5X was introduced in Black, Gold and Pink colour options at a launch event in China.
