Xiaomi is all set to announce the Xiaomi Mi 5S flagship on September 27. While we know that this is a top-end device, new rumors state that there could be a smaller version of the Mi 5S featuring a 4-inch display. It is said that the ‘S’ in the Mi 5S could also stand for ‘Small’, further adding to the rumors about a small screen flagship device from the Chinese company.
What’s more, a new image alleged to be of the smaller Xiaomi Mi 5S variant also cropped up online. Like the Xiaomi Mi5, this particular device is also seen to sport an oblong home button up front. We can even see the Mi logo on the top left corner, revealing the identity of its manufacturer. Further, the leak said that the phone will feature NFC and will support Xiaomi Mi Pay, which was announced about a month back. This rumor is in line with the report we heard yesterday about the Mi 5S supporting Mi Pay and Bus cards in China.
As for the Xiaomi Mi 5S regular edition, expect the phone to feature Snapdragon 821 chipset inside with 6GB RAM and 256GB UFS 2.0 memory. Another highlighted feature of the phone should be the “Under Glass” Ultrasonic Fingerprint sensor. Other rumored features include 16MP f/1.8 aperture lens, 4-axis image stabilization, PDAF and 3490mAh battery.
Soon, these specs will be confirmed by the company, so stay tuned.
