Engineered for breakneck speed

Mi 5 offers only the highest in performance on Snapdragon 820. Its custom Kryo cores offer a new benchmark in single-core performance compared to its predecessors. Despite having a powerful performance, battery life is enhanced with sophisticated 14nm-processed cores which consume less power. A low power island also takes over always-on tasks and sensors for even more outstanding battery performance.
Other upgrades in Snapdragon 820 include a faster image processor, more powerful audio module, more advanced instruction set, amongst others. All of these create an ultra-fast, ultra-satisfying experience on Mi 5.

Keep a sharp lookout with 4-axis OIS

Breakthroughs in camera technology throughout the Mi 5 camera will leave you with sharper, clearer images in any situation. Outside, sapphire lens protects against scratches and damage. Inside, the latest Sony IMX298 16MP sensor provides cleaner color separation with deep trench isolation (DTI). Mi 5 also has a revolutionary 4-axis optical image stabilization (OIS) which counters movements and shakiness across all directions. By calibrating the camera module in real-time, photos and videos remain pin sharp and steady.
