It was clear that the surname Plus was going to mean the arrival of a smartphone with a large-format screen, and more specifically with a 5.7-inch display, thus surpassing the Xiaomi Mi 5s in size, and also the iPhone 7 Plus, although not for long. However, its screen has a Full HD resolution of 1,920 x 1,080 pixels. Being a flagship, with Android, perhaps it is a bit low, not quite being Quad HD, but it is the same as that of the Apple mobile, so in reality there is not much problem when comparing it with the iPhone 7 Plus.
A powerful mobile
However, we did not find any deficiencies in terms of its processing capacity. Both its memory options, and the processor it has, are difficult to improve. Basically, it comes with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 821, the latest version of the company’s highest-level processor. Also, its RAM memory comes in two versions. The most basic is 4 GB, while the advanced version is no less than 6 GB. Its internal memory also comes in two versions, one of 64 GB that will go along with the 4 GB RAM and one of 128 GB that will go along with the 6 GB RAM.
However, although the rest of the technical characteristics of this smartphone are of a high level, if there is something that stands out from the rest, it is the dual camera it has. A dual camera that, in addition, is not embossed on the rear casing of the smartphone, leaving a perfect design. This dual camera has two 13-megapixel Sony sensors, and its technology is similar to what we have seen in the Huawei P9 camera, being an RGB camera and the other monochrome, so that the latter captures more light than the first. and when combining the two photographs, very good results are achieved in the final image. This technology has probably also been integrated thanks to the improvements that come in the Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 processor and of which the company already spoke a few months ago.
In this case, the front camera is 4 megapixels. It is a camera that does not go very there, but that will be useful enough for video calls. After all, with this rear camera, it is not interesting to use the front camera to take quality photographs, not even selfies.
A very complete mobile
Of course, we also find the same characteristics of the Xiaomi Mi 5s in terms of the design of the smartphone, which comes in metal, as well as other technical aspects, such as the fingerprint reader, compatibility with technology. Qualcomm fast charging, Quick Charge 3.0, or the integration of wireless technologies such as 4G + or NFC, a novelty among Xiaomi mobiles, as this way we can make payments with the smartphone.
The Xiaomi Mi 5s Plus will arrive in four colors: silver, dark gray, gold and pink. And it will be available in the two versions already mentioned. One of them with a RAM of 4 GB and an internal memory of 64 GB, whose price at the current exchange rate will be 306 euros, and a version with a RAM of 6 GB and an internal memory of 128 GB, whose price is to change. current will be about 350 euros. It must be said that getting mobile phones in Spain will probably be somewhat more expensive, because we will have to buy them through international distributors, and at the level this smartphone is at, we will probably have to pay much more now at launch. However, over time they will be a good option since their price will be cheaper and it will continue to be one of the highest level smartphones of all that have been launched this year 2016.
