Xiaomi 5X Could Be The First Phone Under Xiaomi’s New Sub-Brand

Xiaomi is said to be working on a new sub-brand after Redmi and Mi targeting the offline market. Lately, we have heard a lot about Xiaomi’s upcoming sub-brand, which is rumored to be called Lanmi.

Initially there were rumours that the X1 would be the first device from this sub brand. However, a new poster has revealed that the device would arrive with the name Xiaomi 5X, or may also be called as Xiaomi Lanmi 5X. The poster also revealed key specifications of the smartphone.

The new report claims that the phone will come in two variants and will indeed have dual camera setup at the back. The image also shows antenna lines and LED flash, which will be placed right next to the dual camera setup.

Chinese website MyDrivers claims, that the Xiaomi 5X will come in two variants. So, we assume that the poster is only speaking of the specs of the basic version of the Xiaomi 5X.

The Xiaomi 5X will feature a 5.5 inch display with a 1080p resolution. It will be powered by the Snapdragon 625 SoC, coupled with 4GB of RAM.  The high-end variant might be powered by the Snapdragon 660 SoC, clubbed with 6GB of RAM. Storage-wise, there will be 64GB of internal storage capacity in both the variants. This device will arrive with MIUI 9 based on Android 7.1.1 Nougat.

On the camera front, the image clearly shows the dual camera setup at the rear. There might be two 12MP sensors at the back – one might be Sony IMX386 and another one Samsung S5k3m3 sensor. Also, the Xiaomi 5X could be the first Xiaomi device to have a 16MP front camera.

Also, the price of the device is 1999 Yuan as per the poster which translates to approx. Rs. 19,000. However, the Xiaomi 5X may not come to the Indian market.

Xiaomi will also launch its next generation Redmi lineup of smartphones next month including the Xiaomi Redmi Note 5, Xiaomi Redmi 5, Xiaomi Redmi 5X, and Xiaomi Redmi 5A.

The same report claims that Xiaomi will announce the exact pricing on July 26, on the same day when Meizu is announcing its Meizu Pro 7. Also, with this new sub-brand, the company is said to compete with companies like Oppo and Vivo, which are major players in offline markets.
