February 23, 2016 - Written By Kristijan Lucic

The Xiaomi Mi 5 has been one of the most leaked devices this year. This China-based company will finally unveil this smartphone during their press conference tomorrow which will be held in both Beijing and Barcelona. XIaomi has already confirmed various aspects of this handset, we know that it will sport a fullHD display, and that it will be fueled by the Snapdragon 820. On top of all that, the company’s co-founder confirmed that the phone will ship with two SIM card slots, and that it will offer NFC functionality as well.

That being said, we’ve also seen some rumors saying that the company might introduce some additional hardware during the event, and everything points to Xiaomi’s very own drone which has been leaking recently. Well, a well-known Chinese analyst, Pan Jiutang, has actually shared a rather interesting post via his official Weibo account. He said that he’s looking forward to ‘one more thing’ tomorrow, which suggests that the Mi 5 won’t be the only device launched at the event, though the event will be based on that launch. of course. The analyst didn’t say anything specific regarding the upcoming products, though it seems like we’re looking at a Mi Drone launch, even though the Mi 5 Plus is also a possibility, even though we haven’t seen any details about that phone for quite some time now. Xiaomi tends to manufacture various products, even though most of them are China-centric for the time being. Xiaomi might even opt to throw various smart gadgets our way during their event, who knows, we’ll just have to wait and see what happens.

The Xiaomi Mi 5 will probably sport a 5.1-inch 1080p (1920 x 1080) display, along with 3GB / 4GB of RAM, and more than one internal storage variant will be available. The device will be fueled by the Snapdragon 820 64-bit quad-core processor, and Android 6.0 Marshmallow will come pre-installed here with Xiaomi’s MIUI 7 OS available on top of it. You can expect this smartphone to be made out of metal, though the metal + glass variant has also been mentioned more than once in the last couple of weeks. The 16-megapixel snapper will quite probably going to be located on the back of this phone, and you can expect a physical home button to be located below the display with a fingerprint scanner built into it.
