A Variant of Xiaomi MI5 May Have Sapphire Display

Xiaomi MI5Apparently, Xiaomi has been preparing its new smartphone model, which would be known commercially as the MI5 or MI4. We are now getting unconfirmed details about the device and according sources in the industry, it is possible that the MI5 will be protected by sapphire display. DigiTimes reported recently that Xiaomi may go ahead with the plan, although there are difficulties in securing sufficient quantity of sapphire displays. The existing manufacturing technology is inadequate to meet the high demand.

According to previous rumors, the Xiaomi MI5 will be equipped with 5.7-inch Quad HD display. Other details are Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 quad-core processor with 64-bit support, 20.7Mp rear-facing camera and 3GB of RAM. We also heard in August that the company is planning to release a limited edition smartphone, about 50,000 units and it will use sapphire protection on the display. So, there’s a possibility that there are a couple variants of MI5, one with sapphire display and a standard model with regular screen protector. Xiaomi won’t be the first, because some device makers already have models with sapphire layers.

Apple failed to provide us with sapphire display on the iPhone 6 and Kyocera has beaten the competitors with its first sapphire smartphone.
