These smartphones will be available in Gold, Rose Gold, Silver, and White color options. Both the smartphones have been crafted with metal.

The new Xiaomi Mi 5s sports a 5.15-inch full-HD (1080 x 1920 pixels) display. The screen packs 16 ultra-brilliant LED lights, which will help in providing more brightness. The Mi 5s Plus highlights a 5.7-inch display with the same resolution.

The Mi 5s Plus rocks dual rear cameras, with two 12-megapixel sensors – one will capture the image, and the other camera will provide depth to it. The Mi 5s rocks a 12-megapixel rear camera, with LED flash, Sony IMX378 sensor and a f/2.0 aperture lens. Both the smartphones Mi 5s and Mi 5s Plus features PDAF autofocus, and both come with a 4-megapixel front camera with 2-micron pixels and a f/2.0 aperture for selfies and video calling. Different contrasts between the devices are their clock rate of the processor. While the Mi 5s has a 2.15GHz Snapdragon 821 SoC, the Mi 5s Plus comes with a 2.35GHz Snapdragon 821 SoC, which looks little more powerful when compared to the Mi 5s.

As expected both the smartphones come with an ultrasonic fingerprint scanner embedded into its home button, which is placed under the glass. Xiaomi claims it offers the same level of performance and accuracy as general finger print scanners.

Network choices on board has 4G LTE, 3G HSPA+, NFC, Wi-Fi 802.11ac, Bluetooth v4.2, and GPS/A-GPS. It also includes some major sensors like accelerometer, gyroscope, proximity sensor, ambient light sensor, barometer, and magnetometer. For more news stay tuned to Tekz24.
