Xiaomi apparently has big plans for Windows 10 Mobile market in 2016. After releasing a Windows 10 Mobile ROM for its previous flagship device, Xiaomi Mi 4, the Chinese giant will now do the same thing with its upcoming flagship model, Xiaomi Mi 5.
Xiaomi Mi 5 is originally an Android device, but various rumors around the internet say that it will also have a Windows 10 Mobile variant. However, this is still just a rumor, as the company didn’t release any official statements yet, but considering Xiaomi’s actions from the recent past, it is very likely to happen.
Xiaomi Mi 4 isn’t the only company’s device powered by Microsoft’s latest operating system, as the company also recently announced its first Windows 10 tablet, Xiaomi MiPad 2. But the Xiaomi MiPad 2 comes with the full desktop OS, instead of the mobile one, which is completely normal, since most of the Windows 10 tablets come with this version of the system.
Xiaomi Mi 5 arrives later this month
We expect the Xiaomi Mi 5 to be available by the end of February, more precisely, on February 24. It is also believed that the Mi 5 will be unveiled at this year’s Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, which takes place February 22-25.
As for the specifications of the Xiaomi Mi 5, most of the specs are still in rumors. However, the company confirmed that the device will be powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 820 processor, and will offer a dual-SIM support.
It is still not clear if the company will release the ‘full’ Windows 10 Mobile device, or just a ROM, like it was the case with the Mi 4.
Windows Report will be at this year’s Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, so if Xiaomi reveals any details about Windows 10 Mobile operating system on its upcoming Mi 5 model, we’re going to inform you with the latest news.
