New Delhi: There is good news for all the Xaomi enthusiasts! The company is planning to launch Xiaomi Mi 5 in China on February 24.

The most anticipated smartphone will be launched around 1.5 years after the launch of Mi4. 

The confirmation of the launch came in the form of a Weibo post from the Chinese company's co-founder and Senior VP Liwan Jiang.

It is not clear when the smartphone will be launched in India. Xiaomi launched Mi 4 in India only six months after the global launch.

Based on the initial leaks, the Mi 5 is likely to feature a 5.2-inch display with either full-HD or QHD resolution.

The handset may have two memory and storage versions - 3GB of RAM with 32GB inbuilt storage, and 4GB of RAM with 64GB storage.

On the camera front, the Mi 5 is rumoured to pack a 16-megapixel rear camera and a 13-megapixel front-facing camera.

It could feature a 3600mAh battery with Quick Charge 3.0 tech.

The handset is said to run MIUI 7 based on Android 6.0 Marshmallow.
