News of a Xiaomi Mi 5s was first reported about 5 months ago and the first detail leaked was of a curved display that supports 3D Touch. Today we have another leak listing the full specs of the phone. The spec sheet which was posted on weibo says this is an exclusive version which means there will be other variants as well.
The Mi 5s will have a 5.15” screen with 3D touch, a snapdragon 821 processor clocked at 2.4GHz, Adreno 530 GPU clocked at 650MHz, and a 6GB LPDDR4 RAM.
Xiaomi is going the iPhone 7 route by offering 256GB of storage (UFS 2.0). The rear camera is a 16MP shooter with PDAF and 4-axis OIS. It can also shoot 4K videos at 30 fps.

There’s NFC, Bluetooth 4.2, GPS, A-GPS, GLONASS, nano sim slots, and USB Type-C. The Mi 5s is powered by a 3490mAh battery with Qualcomm’s Quick Charge 3.0 on board. The phone will have a thickness of 7.25 mm and is said to weigh just 147 g which is just a tiny bit more than the Mi 5 which weighs 139 g.
There is still no news on price and official release date, but we presume the launch date is not too far off. Xiaomi has slashed the Mi 5 already, so if you are planning to get a new device without breaking the bank, you should consider it. [source]
