At the Beijing event today, Xiaomi announced Mi 5X smartphone alongside MIUI 9 and Mi AI Speaker. Priced at RMB 1,499 (approximately Rs 15,000), the Mi 5X is also touted as a scaled-down variant of the company’s flagship Mi 6 smartphone. But both smartphones share similar camera configuration, and to show off its capabilities, Xiaomi has released a few camera samples.

Xiaomi has equipped the Mi 5X with a dual-camera setup on the rear featuring the same sensors as the Mi 6. So, the dual rear camera on Mi 5X comprises of a 12-megapixel wide-angle lens and a 12-megapixel telephoto lens to capture the depth-of-field details in the image. The primary camera has also been paired with a dual-LED flash to maintain the color tone of the images, and keep it as natural as it can. The dual-LED flash is placed on the extreme left side of the camera ring, making it appear slightly different from the Apple iPhone 7 Plus, but not completely.
In first impressions, the images do look vivid and aptly deliver the depth-of-field effect in portrait shots. The color balance appears to be neutral, and no such burst of colors is noticed in the photos. ALSO READ: MIUI 9 announced with refined UI, split-screen mode and smart assistant
We couldn’t help but notice the watermark on the photos, which look very similar to what is on offer on the OnePlus 5 and the Honor 8 Pro.
