Today we know Xiaomi has released Xiaomi MI 5X which aims at photographing with dual rear camera to compete with OPPO and VIVO in offline shops. So the design of Xiaomi MI5X will be a little different from previous modes, especially its thickness, up to 7.3mm. Right now a reliable e-shop, Geekbuying has started to sell it at $259.99 for Xiaomi MI 5X, besides, you can also check other Xiaomi gadgets.
Xiaomi MI5X has 155.4mm*75.8mm*7.3mm dimensions, only 165g weight, quite light, in the box, it comes with a phone, a battery, a pin, a USB type cable, a user manual and a power adapter.

About its hardware, we guess it will use Snapdragon 660 SoC, but instead, it adopts Snapdragon 625 Octa core processor, RAM 4GB ROM 64GB internal storage, which belongs to mid-range level, after all its high-end phone uses RAM 6GB, but for those offline users, it is quite powerful to play large games. Believe it or not, try first.
It uses the same solution on its dual 12MP back camera as that of iPhone 7 Plus and Xiaomi MI6, one for wide-viewing angle, the other one for long focus, therefore you can enjoy very good quality photographing effect, especially blurring the background, and it has a 5MP front camera, which can support Beauty 3.0 for taking selfies very clearly and beautifully.
It becomes thinner, so the battery capacity will be also less, it is built in 3000mAh battery, which can support about 2 or 3 days standby time, you can use quick charge to charge very fast. We will make detailed review later.
Xiaomi MI5X can run MIUI 9 OS based on Android7.1, it supports Dual SIM card, dual standby, 4G LTE network, fingerprint scanner on back design, it can also support multi-language, Bluetooth, GPS, USB Type C, etc.
In general, Xiaomi Mi 5X is a new breakthrough for Xiaomi aiming at offline market, we believe there will more users who take taking photos by this phone at more competitive price.
