It has been reported that Xiaomi is working on an upgraded version of the Mi5, dubbed as the Mi5s. The biggest upgrade that this device will feature is a pressure sensitive display which will bring Apple 3D-esque features to their customers. In case you are not aware, a pressure sensitive display allows users to light-press or hard-press the display to bring up various menus, depending on the content.
An ultrasonic fingerprint scanner (Qualcomm made) and dual camera sensors on the back may also be found on the upcoming device. After the LeEco Le Max 2 and the OnePlus 3 was launched a while earlier with 6GB of RAM, it looks like Xiaomi is now ready with a response of their own as 6GB RAM is supposedly an assured feature of the Mi5s. What would be interesting to see is if the Chinese OEM would use the Snapdragon 823 SoC that will supposedly power the Galaxy Note 7 as well, when it comes out in August. If this news got your attention, then you should be happy to know that the Mi5s will apparently be released this year only, along with the rumored Mi Note 2.
