Xiaomi may have unveiled the high-discontinue Mi Note and Mi Note Pro this January, but those are both phablets. When it comes to a 'normal size' flagship offering, the Chinese company still relies on the Mi 4, which was announced in July 2014.

So a recent top of the line device from Xiaomi (in a more pocketable form factor) is clearly going to arrive in the next few weeks or months. In fact, according to some recent rumors out of China, we may see two Mi 5 flagships instead of one - the Mi 5 and the Mi 5 Plus.

Both of these are to be outed sometime in July, so around twelve months after their predecessor. As for specs, the Mi 5 is assumed to sport a 5.2-inch touchscreen, 3GB or 4GB of RAM, a 16 MegaPixel (MP) rear camera, a 3,000 mAh battery, and the elegant Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 chipset at the helm.

As we trecent you a few days ago, the Mi 5 might acquire a fingerprint sensor too. On the other hand, the Mi 5 Plus will be a 6-inch phablet coming with QHD (2,560x1,440) classy screen resolution, 4GB of RAM, 32GB of storage, and a 16 MegaPixel (MP) rear capturing camera with optical image stabilization. It will sport a 'bezelless' display design.

It's odd that the Mi 5 Plus will be even bigger than the two Mi Notes, but stranger things have happened in the mobile world. As for SoC choice, the Chinese sources haven't assumed anything, but since it's going to be a high-discontinue offering it should also come with the Snapdragon 810.

Other details, such as pricing, haven't been revealed yet. Obviously you need to hold all of this with a healthy dose of salt, since at this point it's nothing but unconfirmed information. As we acquire closer to July we should hear more.
