It features an unusual 5.15 inch FHD screen that has the latest and beastly Snapdragon 820 quad core processor with 1.8 to 2.15 GHz clock speed! You'll also get either 3 GB or 4G GB LPDDR RAM, up to 128 GB internal storage and 3,000 mAh of battery with quick charge 3.0 support.

It also boast a 16 MP Sony IMX298 rear camera with PDAF and 4 axis optical image stabilization without the camera hump. In front you'll have a pretty large 8 MP shooter. This phone is also complete with connectivity options like the LTE Cat 12 w/ VoLTE support, WiFi ac, NFC, IR Blaster and USB Type C.

The Mi5 also has a fingerprint sensor and runs on Android 6.0 Marshmallow with MIUI 7 on top.

A true beast!

Xiaomi claims that the new Mi5 can reach a benchmark score of over 142K via Antutu. If that's true, this is arguably the most powerful Android phone in the world. That inclusion of just an FHD screen instead of a QHD one help a lot in that sense.
