It will have a 16 Megapixel camera at the back  and a 13 Megapixel front facing camera as well. The Mi 5 will be powered by a 3000 mAH battery that supports quick charging, allowing users to charge 30% of the phone’s battery in 40 minutes. Running Android 5.1 Lollipop, the phone will come with MIUI 7 on top.


Last month, the phone got featured on AnTuTu benchmark listing last month where it posted a 73,000 plus score. The device is also rumored to cost less than $400 in China. Newer rumors have also hinted a possibility of a microUSB Type-C port on the Mi 5.
