Both the new Mi 5s and Mi 5s Plus smartphone, successors to this year's Mi 5. The devices offer mostly expected updates, including an improved camera and faster processor, but there is one particularly interesting touch — a new ultrasonic fingerprint reader built under the glass at the bottom of the phones.
The unique ultrasonic sensor means a more precise fingerprint scanning for the Mi 5s. According to Xiaomi, the sensor is based on Qualcomm's ultrasonic technology, which, it's claimed, makes it easy to scan your fingers even when they're dirty or wet. If you've ever tried to unlock an iPhone with wet hands, you'll know how irritating this issue can be.
In terms of other specs, the main change for the phones is a new Snapdragon 821 SoC (a step up from the Mi 5's Snapdragon 820) and a metallic rear case (the back on the Mi 5 is glass).
It is equippied with the Sony Exmor IMX 378 ISP, which is 12-megapixel camera , with dual-tone LED flash and 4K video recording.
Mi 5s offer up to 128GB of storage, while the RAM is up to 4GB of RAM.
