Finally we get good news from Xiaomi. It seems that Xiaomi is planning to launch their newest FlagShip the Xiaomi MI5 with Snapdragon 810, as early as CES 2015 in Las Vegas next month, January 2015.
The plans of Xiaomi to launch the Xiaomi MI5 already on the CES 2015 and to enter the US Market were first reported by the Chinese Economic Daily News and Digitime and later confirmed by Forbes. This entry in the US Market would mean a major step for the Chinese Manufacturer, which is already the third biggest smartphone manufacturer globally after Apple and Samsung.

If we judge by the specs of the current flagship, the Xiaomi Mi4, the Xiaomi MI5 will definitely set new industry standards. According to Industry Analyst Sun Changxu the Xiaomi Mi5 will be one of the first smartphones to sport the Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 Octa Core Processor with the extreme powerful Adreno 430GPU. Additionally the Xiaomi Mi5 will get a huge 5.7″ 2K Screen and Fingerprint Scanner on board. The Xiaomi MI5 will also get a 20.7MP Camera, most likely the same Sony Exmor in the Meizu MX4.
According to the reports Xiaomi will keep the pricing for the Xiaomi MI5 stable at 1999 Yuan or 326 USD off contract in the US, which would make the Xiaomi Mi5 with Snapdragon 810 definitely one of the best deals on the market. It is not unrealistic that Xiaomi will sport the Snapdragon 810 OctaCore Cpu. According to QualComm the Snapdragon 810, will start shipping officially early 2015. Earlier we saw the first development devices with Snapdragon 810 already on Sale for Manufacturers and developers, so its entirely possible that we will see the Xiaomi MI5 with Snapdragon 810 in January already.
According to Xiaomi’s CEO it was always the plan to dominate other markets, outside China “You can certainly call this an acceleration. It’s our mission and our belief that this model should be able to achieve some level of success outside of China.”
If Xiaomi really plans their market entry to the US in January 2015 with their newest Flagship Xiaomi MI5 this is a huge step in catching up with Apple and Samsung in the Smartphone Market. Moreover a Xiaomi 5.7″ 2K Smartphone with Snapdragon 810 for 326USD would set new standards and would be awesome for the customers.
