Seems bendable smartphones are the future, considering the rate at which leaked renders of concept phones with flexible displays are being unveiled. Just recently, we got wind that LG had filed a patent for a foldable smartphone after Samsung, not forgetting that Lenovo had teased a flexible smartphone just before the IFA Berlin 2016. I was even looking forward to the launch of the Lenovo flexible phone at IFA but that didn’t happen. OPPO had also in the past got into the fray of concept phones with flexible display. Now, what is likely a concept phone said to be developed by Xiaomi has leaked, showing the flexible display that bends in all direction.
The Xiaomi Mi5 was only released a couple of months ago, but the Chinese company is already refreshing it with some improved specifications. Xiaomi has also announced a larger version of the Mi5s, the aptly-named Mi5s Plus and with a dual lens camera. (Why does this sound like something we heard on September 7th before?)
It should be no surprise that this dual-SIM device — which has ditched the glass body to become fully metallic on the back — packs Qualcomm’s latest and greatest Snapdragon 821 chipset, meaning it offers not only improved computational performance but also super speedy tri-band 4G carrier aggregation.
After teasing high benchmark scores in the first teaser yesterday, Xiaomi has released a second teaser for the Mi 5S that confirms dual rear cameras for the smartphone. Earlier rumors said that it will feature a 16-megapixel cameras, so the secondary camera could have a smaller sensor like the Redmi Pro that was unveiled back in July has a 13-megapixel camera along with a 5-megapixel camera for achieving depth of field and real-time background blur.
The Xiaomi Mi 5s one of many beastly smartphones likely to drop this side of the new year. The first time the Mi 5S showed up on Antutu we didn’t get a score, just a bunch of details like the android version, the type of processor, GPU, and screen resolution. The reason might be because the phone wasn’t well optimised yet or Xiaomi was just bidding its time.
Today, the Xiaomi Mi 5S’ Antutu score was released online. The Mi 5S scored a whooping 164002 points, overtaking LeEco’s Le Pro 3 which used to be the former champion with a score of 163594. That is a very high score that was slightly topped at 164,119 when the handset made another AnTuTu test run.
Xiaomi seems to be gearing to launch a beefed-up version of the Mi 5 flagship smartphone. Dubbed Mi 5s, the handset has been leaked tipping the complete innards. The biggest improvement touted in the new alleged Xiaomi Mi 5s specs wise is that it packs a Snapdragon 821 processor clocked at 2.4GHz. To recall, the Mi 5 was powered by the Snapdragon 820 processor but SenseID is what makes the Xiaomi Mi5s something to look forward to.
Microsoft’s Lumia 640 may not be the most powerful or feature-packed smartphone, but a study has found it’s the best performer under a weak network signal. Nokia has always been famous for their technical proficiency when it comes to phone hardware, and it is nice to see that this holds true even in Microsoft Mobile’s latest handsets.
Until a few years ago, before Motorola launched the aggressively priced Moto E and the Moto G 2nd generation, if you were in the market looking for a decent budget smartphone there were plenty of options but each one of those smartphones almost yelled “I am cheap” at any one who looked. The internals weren’t so great either. Fast forward 2016, the two Moto phones brought a drastic change in the budget segment with many Chinese competitors jumping in.
