Xiaomi Mi5 to possibly have a black edition
It’s been reported that Xiaomi, the world’s third largest smartphone manufacturer, is set to release its newest flagship device at the upcoming Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2015. There have already been possible Mi5 white edition photos leaked, but today brings us a photo of a possible black edition.
The Xiaomi Mi5 is rumored to be sporting a screen somewhere between 5.5 to 5.7 inches with a 2K HD display. Anything beyond that, like what Snapdragon processor it will be using, is still debated among various sources. Some sources claim it will be the Snapdragon 805, others are saying the 810.
Xiaomi has been featured fairly heavily in the news lately. Yesterday, Talk Android reported that Xiaomi reached $45 billion USD valuation, making it the number tech start-up in the world and surpassing Uber, who is sitting at $40 billion USD. The valuation offers a bit of respite for Xiaomi after just reporting to their shareholders that their net profit for 2014 had only been $56 million USD.
Additionally, Xiaomi has been crushing its competition in emerging markets. It bested Samsung in China for 2014, and just today, it sold out its 40,000 units of Redmi Note 4G smartphones in India in just six seconds.
