Xiaomi may not be selling its smartphones in Europe, but that hasn’t stopped it bringing its latest flagship to Mobile World Congress 2016 this week. The Xiaomi Mi 5 – and its upscale, upgraded Mi 5 Pro sibling – stick closely to the Chinese firm’s pattern of picking high-end components and oddly-affordable prices.
So, you get Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 820, up to 4GB of RAM, and up to 128GB of storage, only with a sticker roughly half what Apple or Samsung will charge you for one of their flagships. A brand-new 16-megapixel Sony camera promises great things, too.
Unfortunately, the bad news is that for the moment there’s no word on when – or if – the Mi 5 will make it to the US or Europe. It’ll arrive in China come March 1st.
