I only want to unlock the bootloader after the release of Cyanogenmod' 14 :)
I believe there might be a slight mistake here: "with bands 38 / 39 / 40 / 41 left with uncertainty".
IF one copy-pastes the table from "Q: What networks and LTE bands are supported?" (http://en.miui.com/thread-231030-1-1.html) it becomes visible that the "uncertain" band is actually FDD-LTE 29 only.
vegas racer, 26 Feb 2016I live in Thailand and they use 2100 for their 4G LTE service. I do not see the 21 band listed... moreNo one knows right now except some people at Xiaomi's, there are no specs available for Mi5 bands so far.
I live in Thailand and they use 2100 for their 4G LTE service. I do not see the 21 band listed. Are you sure 2100 is NOT supported by the Mi5?
It would be great if this is true, would be very interested in this phone. Hopefully it can be used to it full potential in the us in the future.
I hope this turns out to be true. I would buy one of these for Verizon and then unlock the boot loader.
it will work every where in the world
because the LTE modem were integrated with SoC snapdragon 820

Copying the text from the source, the "(Uncertain)" is at the end of the first FDD line (and not referring to the TDD line) - too bad ;(
This makes it a LOT more sensible that it is not launched globally....
Hey people from GSM Arena, you used to be a very serious website for phones and these kind of stuff but you are getting bad and bad with rumors etc...can't you read? it is written "uncertain", it means that now nobody knows about the bands! even the guy who have posted the news first just claimed that the phone has 1/3/7, now he has updated but still, it is "uncertain" so far.
The bands are great news, previous rumours claimed that not all std European bands were included.
I wonder why they would NOT launch it in the EU/US. It seems like they could get a lot of buyers - even if they gave it English UI only. (I set any device to English anyway, as translations to Danish for any brand usually are so horrible that it is useless) All that is needed is a national keyboard and vocabulary - but that is easy to find, e.g. Swype,.
