Some of Xiaomi Mi5’s rumored specs include a 5.7-inch QHD display with a screen resolution of 2560 x 1440, a 64-bit Qualcomm Snapdragon quad-core processor, and a fingerprint sensor for identification.


As for how much the new handset will cost, there’s a big possibility that they will maintain the same pricing for this new flagship as the Mi4 when it was launched in order to stay competitive against other Chinese brands. EDN tells us that the new device would make its official debut this January at CES Las Vegas.

In addition, the report also states that the LG G Flex 2 as well as the Xperia Z4 will join Mi5 in the announcement. Stay tuned as we wait for official announcements.

    TAIPEI – Taiwan has identified 12 smartphone brands that do not conform with its privacy standards, and the handsets makers could face fines or even an outright ban unless they address these breaches, an official at the telecoms regulator said on Friday.

    Taiwan’s government began to review privacy standards two months ago after media reports said smartphones made by Chinese firm Xiaomi Technology Co Ltd could be sending user data to its home servers in mainland China without users’ permission.

    Hsiao-Cheng Yu, vice chairman of Taiwan’s National Communications Commision (NCC), did not name any of the 12 brands, but said the investigation found that some of these smartphones could allow their manufacturers to collect users’ data without their permission.

    Mas aggressive maglabas ang Asus sa Pinas kesa Xiaomi. Pinaparaffle pa lang ang Mi4 this December kaya expect Mi5 to be released around November or December 2015. Siyempre as a raffle prize pa rin.
