Fricking hell, has Xiaomi signed a contract with Qualcomm to buy ALL of their SD 625/626 chipsets?
YET ANOTHER mid range phone with a bog standard SOC, being passed off as "near flagship". I would take a decent SOC over gimmicky BS like dual cameras any day.
From innovation to stagnation, Xiaomi has come a long way indeed. NOT.
MG7, 28 Aug 2017Needed Mi6 not poor mi5x.Exactly....mi 5x is not up to the standard
Needed Mi6 not poor mi5x.
Why not mi6....???
I just wish if they launch Mi5x with stock Android under Google's Android One Program.
I am being too much optimistic though.
Mi 5X global launch? Why this phone even deserve an event for launch? Why is it even called flagship just because of dual camera? Are they forgetting it have SD625 inside that phone. Yes, a midrange. Wow, a midrange phone get a global launch event. Xiaomi must be rich. Ok. Do whatever you want Xiaomi. The price better be cheap.
The Mi 5X with its puny 3000 mAh battery will hardly be a hit in India, its twin cameras notwithstanding. India's poor quality networks mandate minimum 4000 mAh battery for a 5.5 inch phone. And battery life is one reason Redmi Note 4 is No 1 phone in India. Xiaomi had better consider this factor befpre an expensive introro.
Anonymous, 28 Aug 2017Isn't mi5 X out already? How can you have a already launched phone in a new phone launch event... moreDude read again carefully. It's the global launch in India. Mi5x is currently exclusive to China only.
Yea, this phone is a good phone considering the price so you must send this phone to everywhere around the world and you will make it big. Please try hard to promote this phone.
Escape? Interesting choice of word.
OmniVision sensors are not good. Not sure if they have improved now. Waiting for reviews.
Anonymous, 28 Aug 2017atleast far better than Nokia's SD430 mobileIndeed
They are selling their sd430 phones as upper midrange and everyone is applauding them
At least this is 625 and doesn't have the issues of the 430
The only thing going for this is the dual camera
Max 2 is good and cheap

Flagship camera lol
Flagship Cam H/w
Mid range S/w
Isn't mi5 X out already? How can you have a already launched phone in a new phone launch event. Centainly a $250 phone can't be that much a big deal.
Given the recent leak video, I would say 99% is a Mi MIX ii
Who needs more than 625?
