Meanwhile, the Mi 5 4MP front camera may be a bit of a disappointment for selfie enthusiasts but the primary snapper does manage to impress quite a bit. The rear camera is a 16 Megapixel shooter with 4-axis OIS system that guarantees clearer pictures for experienced photographers and newbies alike. The main camera also has a Sony IMX 298 sensor along with f/2.0 aperture.
In other news, the Redmi Note 3 was launched in India few days back and Hugo Barra, Vice President of Xiaomi further announced that the Xiaomi Mi 5 will be launching in India in a month.
It will come in three different variants: The Mi 5 (32 GB storage and 3 GB RAM) is priced at RMB 1999 (roughly translates to INR 21,000), the Mi 5 64 GB variant is priced at RMB 2299 (approximately INR 24,000) and the Mi 5 Pro (the top-of-the-line SKU with 128 GB storage and 4 GB RAM) carries a price tag of RMB 2699 (roughly translates to INR 28,500).
Meanwhile, things are looking really great for Xiaomi, maybe a little overwhelming as well since Mi 5 ran out of stock within five minutes of its first flash sale in China on 1st March. The company has asked Foxconn and Inventec to increase its production capacity in order to meet the increasing demand.
