Xiaomi has had a few opportunities to launch its next flagship smartphone, the Mi 5, this year, but the handset has remained elusive so far. The latest rumor is now pointing to a possible December 3rd announcement, while a new Mi Band could be unveiled next week.

According to the tipster, the Xiaomi Mi 5 will be powered by Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon 820 processor. The chip isn’t expected to appear in devices until 2016 but there’s nothing to stop companies announcing phones before then. The rumor also states that Qualcomm may officially launch its latest mobile chip on November 20th. Qualcomm has gradually been dripping out little pieces of information about its chip over the past couple of months.

Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 AASee also: Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 said to be 50% stronger than the Samsung Exynos 742071

Other rumored specifications for the Xiaomi Mi 5 include a 5.3-inch QHD (2560×1440) display, 4GB of RAM, a 16 megapixel rear camera, 3,030mAh battery, and either 16GB or 64GB of internal storage, but without a microSD card slot. A different report also suggests that Xiaomi may opt for MediaTek’s Helio X20 chip, as the Snapdragon 820 may not be available for a while yet.

Moving on, a separate source has suggested that Xiaomi may launch a successor to its Mi Band next week. The new device is said to incorporate a heart sensor this time around and could cost CNY 99 (approximately Rs. 1,050 or USD$16).

We’ll be sure to keep our eyes peeled for additional Mi 5 rumors and details in the coming weeks.

    Hmmm… a source told me that the Xiaomi Mi 5 will get a ClusterVision 33.86 petaFLOPS processor, 10.6-inch Quad-foldable OctaHD IMAX VR screen with 1 TB VRAM, 10 TB of SRAM, THX surround speakers, 16x 1 Gigapixel sphere cameras with night vision sensors, kinetic everlasting battery, unlimited internal storage and adaptable helidrone-mode with integrated scuba-transformer. And it has full AI capabilities, but that only works with the language settings set on Mandarin-Chinese.

      Oh, can’t wait for it to be launched!
