Xiaomi has made the Mi 5X official today at an event in Beijing, China. The new mid-range smartphone from Xiaomi highlights a dual rear camera setup, an octa-core Snapdragon 625 SoC, and improved audio quality, among other things.

As far as design is concerned, the Mi 5X looks eerily similar to the Apple iPhone 7 Plus. The rounded edges, and the dual-camera module at the back seem inspired by Apple’s flagship smartphone.

Specifications

As far as the specifications, the Mi 5X flaunts a 5.5-inch full HD (1080p) display, and is powered  powered by a 64-bit octa-core Snapdragon 625 SoC clocked at up to 2GHz coupled with 4GB of RAM.

In terms of optics, the Mi 5X draws similar camera configuration to the Mi 6. It houses a dual rear camera setup (12-megapixel wide-angle with 1.25-micron pixel sensor and f/2.2 aperture, and a 12-megapixel telephoto with 1-micron pixel sensor and f/2.6 aperture).

And comes with a Portrait Mode for bokeh effects, similar to the iPhone 7 Plus and the OnePlus 5. It bears a 5-megapixel front camera with real-time beautification.

The Xiaomi Mi 5X also comes with a high-quality audio output with DHS Audio Calibration Algorithm and a standalone audio amplifier for improved quality via headphones.

Xiaomi’s latest smartphone packs a 3080mAh battery, measures 155.4×75.8×7.3mm, and weighs 165grams.
