Xiaomi to launch Mi 5X with dual rear cameras on 5th September

Although it is not cleared in the invitation that which phone will Xiaomi launch in India on September 5.

Xiaomi Mi 5X was recently launched in China. The rear camera setup in the phone is identical to Mi 6, the brand's flagship phone.

Speaking of its cameras, Xaiomi Mi 5X sports a dual-camera setup with one 12MP wide-angle lens, and another 12MP telephoto lens.

On the hardware side, the Mi 5X comes with a 5.5-inch 1080p display and a Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 processor clubbed with 4 gigs of RAM under the hood. The Mi 5X rocks a dual 12 MP + 12 MP shooter at the back.

Mi 5X was introduced in Black, Gold and Pink colour options at a launch event in China. This launch event will be hosted in New Delhi, and the company also opened up Fan Registration form, just in case you'd like to participate in that event. The device is backed by a 3,080mAh battery and runs on Android 7.1.1 Nougat with Xiaomi's MIUI 9 skin on the top. 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. Xiaomi's phones tend to go out of stock in a matter of seconds, breaking many records on their way. The phone has a dual front camera with a 13-megapixel sensor and another 12-megapixel camera. The Mi 5X also may be available to wider consumer base than the Mi 6 as it's priced a little lower. The camera app has a portrait mode very similar to the one on the iPhone 7 Plus, which allows blurring out of the background.

The Mi 5X was announced in China for 1499 yuan which is approximately equal to Rs 15,000 but expect the pricing to be around the Rs 20,000 mark.

On the connectivity front, the device offers 4G with VoLTE, Bluetooth 4.2, WiFi (802.11 b/g/n), Global Positioning System with AGS/GLONASS, 3.5mm audio jack and USB type C. The device measures 155.4 x 75.8 x 7.3 mm and weighs 165 grams.
