Dear Mi 5 fans!

I'm very sure everyone is just as excited as me, as we are counting down patiently to 1-Mar-2016. The new 'insanely' fast Mi 5 is secretly and patiently R&D for at least 18months, which made more than 10 technologies breakthroughs and 21 patents awarded for display technology. All these new breakthroughs are all made possible just because of you, Mi Fans! Let me share more on one of the awesome technology, 4-axis OIS!

But first, let us do a quick re-cap of it specifications;
Snapdragon 820, up to *4GB RAM + 128GB UFS 2.0 (*For Mi 5 PRO ONLY)
600Mbps 4G+ download speeds, VoLTE
3D *ceramic/glass body, weighs 129g (*Ceramic body for Mi 5 PRO ONLY)
5.15” 16 LED light display, 3D ceramic/glass body
Front fingerprint sensor
16MP 4-axis OIS + 2µm-pixel 4MP camera
3000mAh battery, Quick Charge 3.0
Full feature NFC
MIUI based on Android M
Available in Gold, White, Black (*Mi 5 PRO only in BLACK)


The new Mi 5 camera is a technology breakthroughs which features a 16MP camera, with 4-axis OIS (Optical Imaging Stablisier), with PDAF (Phase Detection Auto-focus, commonly found in DSLR cameras) and Deep Trench technology (DTI) which gives u better pixel-to-pixel isolation.

It is all-new state of the art technology which was developed and patiented, which not presence currently in competitor's devices. Even so available in one of the competitor's device, feature only a 2-axis OIS, the Mi 5 feature even MORE AXIS OIS; 4-axis OIS! (latitudinal + longditudinal, and transveral image stabilitzation)

A 2-axis OIS, which is not as effective as 4-axis, which compensates for movement across all possible directions—rotational and lateral movement—during photography. This means that your photos will remain clear, sharp and in focus whether you're taking a shot in candlelight or trying to snap a photo of your hyperactive puppy.

This technology is complicated and difficult to integrate into a smartphone, especially one that is as light (129g) and thin as Mi 5, and yet we were able to achieve it.

See how Mi 5 remains unshakeable in this wiggly video demonstrating 4-axis OIS steadiness. smile emoticon Share this video with smartphone photography enthusiasts and tell them about Mi 5!

This made it practically 'UNSHAKEABLE'! With 'INSANELY FAST' SD820 processor, couple with an 'UNSHAKEABLE' 4-axis OIS, there is no deniable the new flagship is a "BEAST" device! To help you better understanding what all that means, let take a look at the following official media release!

What do you think of this 4-axis OIS?!?!?
