first_imgThe Xiaomi Mi 5X, launched in China on Wednesday, may be considered as a more affordable or mini version of the company’s flagship Mi 6 phone. The Mi 5X essentially brings the Mi 6’s dual rear cameras to the masses. 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.The dual camera system on-board the Mi 5X, just like it is in the Mi 6, is capable of giving professional bokeh effects in portraits. We take a look.Specifications:Processor: The Mi 5X is powered by a 2GHz octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 processor clubbed with Adreno 506GPU. The Snapdragon 625 is notably the first 600-series chipset to be built on a power-efficient 14nm process: the focus therefore lies on improved thermal efficiency and power-saving.RAM: 4GBInternal storage: The Mi 5X comes with 64GB of internal storage which is further expandable by up to 128GB via a hybrid micro-SD card slot.Screen: The Mi 5X comes with a 5.5-inch 1080p LTPS display with 450nit brightness.Rear camera: The Mi 5X comes with a dual camera setup on the rear — 12-megapixel + 12-megapixel — where one lens is wide-angle while the other is telephoto. The Mi 5X offers 2X optic zoom and 10X digital zoom (just like the iPhone 7 Plus) and should technically result in clearer distant shots and professional bokeh effects in portraits. The dual camera system on-board the phone is assisted with 4-axis OIS (and a dual-LED flash) which should technically entail in more stabilized videos.advertisementFront camera: On the front, the Mi 5X comes with a 5-megapixel camera.Software: The Mi 5X runs Android Nougat-based MIUI 9.Battery: The Mi 5X is backed by a 3,080mAh battery.Special features:– The Xiaomi Mi 5X comes with a full metal unibody design and a rear mounted fingerprint scanner.

Everything from the 2.5 D curved glass on the front to the antenna lines placement on the back, screams the iPhone. The only visible difference is seen in the fingerprint scanner placement. As opposed to the iPhone 7 Plus that comes with a front-mounted fingerprint scanner, the Xiaomi Mi 5X sports one on the back. It further comes with physical capacitive — soft keys — keys on the front.–The dual-SIM Mi 5X supports 4G LTE connectivity and USB Type-C for charging and data syncing.– Alongside the Mi 5X, Xiaomi also announced MIUI 9, the next major iteration of Xiaomi’s mobile operating system and is based on Android Nougat.
