Xiaomi Mi5S: Ultrasonic Fingerprint Scanner, Force Touch And High-Res Camera Leaked
The battle of specs is much more fun outside mainstream devices. This is proven by how worthy of praises and by how much heftier most phones outside Apple and Samsung are. One example of these is the upcoming Xiaomi Mi 5S.
Xiaomi Mi 5S Rumors
The most recent news about the Mi 5S is that it will come with Snapdragon Sense ID, an ultrasonic fingerprint reader placed underneath the display. This kind of scanning technology is also rumored to come to the next generation of iPhones, probably the iPhone 8, as well as the rumored Microsoft Surface Phone.
Aside from the display-embedded fingerprint scanner, the Xiaomi Mi 5S is also rumored to have another iPhone-like feature - Force Touch. This feature is similar to the iPhone's 3D Touch. It allows the phone to distinguish the amount of force the user is using, giving out varying options depending on the force applied to the screen. This means that the phone knows whether your tap is a soft tap, a regular tap, or a hard press. This is typically applicable to most parts of the phone.
The Xiaomi Mi 5S' camera samples were also 'leaked'. According to a source, Xiaomi's CEO was actually the one who posted the samples on Weibo. Needless to say, the captures are great and overall unsurprising. The device is expected to come with a dual camera system, as most flagship phones do this year. Furthermore, as described by the source, the Xiaomi Mi 5S will come with a 16 MP rear camera with 4 axis OIS and 6P lens with PDAF.
Xiaomi Mi 5S Specs
According to accumulated rumors, the Xiaomi Mi 5S will also come with 6 GB RAM, 256 GB storage, and Android Marshmallow/MIUI 8 OS. The processor will be Snapdragon 821 SoC and the battery would be in the 3,400 mAh to 3,500 mAh bracket. The Xiaomi Mi 5S would be 5.15-inch in display size and it will come with 1080x1920 pixel resolution. It could also come with Mi Pay mobile payment support through the device's NFC.
Xiaomi Mi 5S Availability
According to Phone Arena, Xiaomi is expected to announce the Mi 5S on September 27. For the price, two variants are expected. One could be priced at $300 and the more premium variant could go as high as $450.
