Mysterious Mi dual camera smartphone (Mi 5x?) coming to India

Xiaomi is all set to launch its first dual camera smartphone In India. The device will feature OIS, 4K video recording and 2X zoom.

Xiaomi has launched three dual camera smartphones in China (Redmi Pro, Mi 6 and Mi 5X). However, India hasn’t got the chance to experience any of these devices. A Recent tweet from Xiaomi India’s managing director Manu Kumar Jain indeed confirms that the company is getting ready to launch first dual camera smartphone in India.

The question here is, which one of these devices coming or the company is working on a new device altogether for the Indian market?

As Xiaomi Mi 5 did not surpass the company’s expectation, it’s for sure that Mi 6 is not going to land in India. Redmi Pro is already a year old device so, one can untick it from the list as well. The only left option (99%) is Xiaomi Mi 5X. Let’s have glaze at its features.

In terms of looks and built quality, the device nearly resembles the iPhone 7 Plus as well as OnePlus 5. The all metal unibody and the dual camera placements are a clear copy from the market leader (iPhone 7Plus). The distinguishable feature that makes this device potato in the tomato tray is the implementation of finger print sensor. Unlike other smartphones, the finger print scanner is located on the posterior of the device.

The Mi 5X runs on MiUi V9 (first device) powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 SoC, paired with 4 GB RAM and 64 GB onboard storage. The dual camera implementation is similar to its predecessor Mi 6. With 12 MP wide angle camera and 12 MP telephoto lens with 4 axial image stabilisation, this device offer 2X lossless zoom, 4K video recording and real time bokeh effect.

Considering the Chinese pricing (CNY 1,499 (roughly Rs. 14,200)), the device is expected to be priced at ~INR 15,000.
