For those looking forward to buying Mi 5s, pre-booking the phone at the introductory price of NRs. 45999 seems like a good deal. That way, you can save NRs. 4000 since once the phone goes on sale starting from Jan. 7, it’ll be priced at NRs. 49,999. The Xiaomi Mi 5s launching in Nepal will be of 3GB RAM+64GB ROM variant. The phone will come in Gold color option only.
Xiomi Mi 5s, the full-metal unibody phone launched back in October, is one of the specs-heavy phones you can buy under NRs. 50,000. Talking about what the phone has to offer, it features a 5.15 inch IPS LCD display that has the resolution of 1920*1080 pixels. Under the hood, the phone packs the quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 processor clocked at 2.15 GHz along with Adreno 520 GPU. It comes with LPDDR4 3GB RAM and unexpandable built-in storage of 64GB.
The camera units used in Mi 5s are 12MP (Sony IMX378 CMOS image sensor with large 1.55μm pixels) primary shooter on the back and 4MP front shooter for the selfies. The phone looks more like a video camera phone as it can shoot 4k at 30fps and 1080p at 120fps. The full HD taken at 120fps will give some decent slo-mo outputs for sure. The front shooter can also take videos at the highest resolution of 1080p as well.
Mi 5s runs on Android 6.0 with MIUI 8.0 layered on top. It houses a non-removable 3200 mAh battery. Plus, it even supports Qualcomm’s Quick Charge 3.0. That means charging can be as fast as 83% in just 30 minutes of time. It comes with USB Type C version 1.0 that is reversible. It’ll be easier to plug in as opposed to traditional USB type B. But remember, there are very few phones with USB Type C so many of your friends’ data cables won’t be compatible with your phone.
The Xiaomi Mi 5s is among very rare phones to sport under the glass ultrasonic fingerprint sensor right on the front.
