Xiaomi took to the stage today to announce the brand new Mi 5X, the newest mid-range phone in its lineup. The affordably priced Mi 5X delivers on features that normally are reserved for phones much more expensive than it, like dual cameras and 64GB of RAM. Let’s take a look at the full specs.


  • Display: 5.5-inch 1920 x 1080p
  • Processor: Qualcomm Snapdragon 625, octa-core clocked at 2.0GHz
  • GPU: Adreno 506
  • Battery: 3080mAh embedded
  • RAM: 4GB
  • Storage: 64GB; microSD card support (128GB max)
  • Camera: dual-12MP main; 5MP front-facing
  • Operating system: Android 7.1 with MIUI 9
  • Connectivity:
    • 2G: GSM 2/3/5/8; CDMA BC0
    • 3G: WCDMA 1/2/5/8; TDS-CDMA 34/39; CDMA EVDO BC0
    • 4G: FDD-LTE 1/3/5/7/8; TD-LTE 34/38/39/40/41

That’s an incredibly solid phone and matches something like the Moto Z Play which is priced at almost $500. But, that’s not what you’ll be paying for the Xiaomi Mi 5X. The base price of the Mi 5X on GeekBuying right now is $305.99 but as a preorder bonus, you can pick it up for only $259.99.
