UPDATE: Xiaomi teases a dual-cam setup for the new phone

Xiaomi's Mi 5s just had its purported spec sheet leaked on Weibo and it looks like quite the upgrade from the Mi 5.


Lots of storage

From the specs, it looks like the Xiaomi Mi 5s is poised to be the company's latest flagship, what with its Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 processor, clocked at 2.4GHz.

With a 5.15in display that will apparently support 3D touch, the Mi 5s will also have an Adreno 530 GPU clocked at 650MHz and a generous 6GB of LPDDR4 RAM. Storage-wise, this particular variant will have 256GB of UFS 2.0 storage.

As for the camera, it will have a 16MP rear camera with PDAF and 4-axis OIS, it supports 4K videos at 30fps.

Other specifications including the standard GPS, A-GPS, GLONASS sensors, Bluetooth 4.2, NFC and nano SIM slots with a USB Type-C port.

With a 3490mAh battery, the Mi 5s also supports Qualcomm's Quick Charge 3.0. As for dimensions, it weighs 147g with a thickness of 7.25mm, only slightly bigger than the 139g Mi 5.

No pricing as yet has been revealed and it is said that this is just one variant, as per usual with Xiaomi flagships. We'll let you know once the pricing is finalised as well as global availability.

UPDATE: Xiaomi has just put up a teaser showing a dual-cam setup, which is most likely for the Mi 5s. There are rumours though that the Xiaomi 27 Sept event happening soon will not showcase the Mi 5s but instead be about the Mi Note S.

What is certain is that Xiaomi is on-trend with the dual-cam setup which will probably be standard on flagships by next year, judging how often it is showing up.
