We all know that Xiaomi usually lose control with publishing new smartphone models. Naming can be confusing for new customers, but we are here to help!
Ladies and gentlemen behold a brand new Xiaomi Mi 5X. Yes they did it again first was Xiaomi Mi5 with “upgrade” Mi5s and now we have downgrade Mi5x (let’s ignore Mi 5c)

Major specification related hit is chipset which is now from middle segment (snapdragon 625). This shouldn’t be a huge problem for people who aren’t obsessed with games.
Still everything other looks promising, starting with 4GB of ram and dual camera setup. 4GB will be enough for smooth OS performance, and this is right call for smartphone like this. Design is also interesting and looks appealing.
MIUI 9 with Android 7 is onboard implementing huge amount of features from Android 7 and MIUI 9, this setup will hopefully be hit at right spot delivering best performance with vast amount of features for user. I can’t wait to grab Xiaomi Mi 5X for review!
