Xiaomi has made official of the Mi 5S Plus variant alongside the announcement of Mi 5S smartphone at an event in China. Here are the details you need to know.
The latest smartphone flagship Mi 5S Plus features a 5.7-inch full HD (1920x1080p) 2.5D curved glass display from Sharp technologies, is powered by the sane Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 821 chipset but clocked faster 2.35GHz instead of 2.12GHz found on Mi 5S. It also has a bigger 3,800mAh battery, and a different metallic body design and contains no plastic antenna lines and the conventional fingerprint reader is on the back portion. There you get a 13-megapixel dual-lens camera system, similar to what you can experience from the Huawei’s implementation of its Leica-enhanced P9 and P9 Plus. The Mi 5S Plus uses a combination of an RGB sensor and a BW sensor – both Sony IMX258 – to produce more detailed and cleaner images, though, each of them can also be used independently as well, particularly if you really want to dabble with artistic black and white options. As mentioned already, has dual image processor for providing the captured image using two sensors for the best quality shots.
A little about the Mi 5S Plus’s dual camera system, has dual-tone LED flash, phase detection autofocus (PDAF), resulting in a quick focus, capable to record videos in 4K resolution, and this too has a 4-megapixel front camera with a pixel size of 2 microns topped for selfies.
On the software front, the Mi 5S Plus runs on MIUI 8 on top of Android 6.0 Marshmallow out-of-the-box. Connectivity options includes USB Type-C port, Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0, measures 7.95mm thick and only embedded with a standard fingerprint sensor on the back. Rest of specs in short and brief:
