Xiaomi Mi 5’s White variant is official now and it will carry a price tag of 2599 Yuan which comes around to $400. The highlight feature of this white colored Mi 5 is that it will be using 3D Glass body instead of 3D ceramic body and that is the reason for the slight price cut.
In terms of configuration there is no difference between the white and black variants. Both feature the same specifications which include 5.2-inch 1080p display, Snapdragon 820 chipset, 4GB RAM, 128GB of native storage, 16MP rear and 4MP front shooters, 3000mAh battery supporting fast charge technology.
Xiaomi has gone in favor of 3D Glass this time instead of 3D ceramic because the production of 3D Glass is much more stable than 3D ceramic which will help Xiaomi to make the shipments ready at a fast pace.
Xiaomi has made it official that Mi 5 White edition will be up for sale on April 29 starting 10:00 AM (Chinese Standard Time) on Xiaomi’s website.[source]
