Under the hood, the Michigan 5 is likely to be powered by a Snapdragon 810 processor with no word on the RAM value. It boasts a spacious 5.7-inch IPS display with a resolution of 2560 x 1440 pixels and Gorilla Glass 4 protection.
Unfortunately for camera phone enthusiasts, the Mi5 Plus will only get a 13MP primary camera with dual-tone flash, while a 4MP selfie camera is placed in front.
As stated by a report by GSM Arena, Xiaomi may be approaching the final stage of its development in introducing a new Michigan device, the Mi5 Plus to the Chinese market.
We still don’t know the Xiaomi Michigan 5 Plus price, but at least we’re getting a good look at the smartphone and another dose of specs. The operating system of the phone is expected to have an Android Lollipop 5.1 firmware though it will be upgradable to Android M on its launch. The Plus version, however, will not only upgrade on the chipset, but also in the camera department, as it is listed with a gigantic 23 MP shooter, as well as a 12 MP selfie cam. Mobipicker’s leak back in May appeared to show Xiaomi’s roadmap, which said that the Mi5 would be released in November.
The Xiaomi Mi5 Plus will also have different cameras as compared to Mi5.
All of the above will be powered by a 3,500 mAh battery. Are Xiaomi Mi5 and Mi5 Plus worth spending money on?
The Xiaomi Mi5 Plus will be just 6.95mm thin, as stated by these TENAA images. However, the Xiaomi Mi5 is expected to cost 2,399 yuan ($386) upon release, so it seems realistic that the Mi5 Plus will be around $100 more, on account of its size and next-gen chipset.
The Michigan 4i, one of the current flagship products of Xiaomi.
Xiaomi tends to go for off-center rear cameras, as you can see above with the Xiaomi Michigan Note Pro tablet. Again, majority line up with the previous rumors, and we expect to hear something official soon now that the device has passed through TENAA.
