Xiaomi has scheduled an event at the China National Convention Centre in Beijing on September 27. Running up to the launch, Xiaomi has released a teaser with a big 'S' taking the spotlight, hinting that the much rumoured Xiaomi Mi 5s is finally set for a launch.

The Xiaomi Mi 5s smartphone is expected to be the beefed-up version of the Xiaomi Mi 5 flagship smartphone. It has been leaked on various occasions revealing key features and specification details. The smartphone will feature upgraded specifications over the Mi 5, but the big talking point will be the Snapdragon 821 processor clocked at 2.4GHz. Just to compare, the Xiaomi Mi 5 is powered by a Snapdragon 820 chipset.

Collating past leaks, the Xiaomi Mi 5s is expected to sport a 5.5-inch full-HD (1080x1920 pixels) display with 95 percent NTSC colour gamut, and 650 nits of brightness. As mentioned, it is powered by a 64-bit Snapdragon 821 quad-core processor with Adreno 530 GPU paired with 6GB of RAM. The storage option is expected to be at 256GB (however other RAM/storage bundles are also rumoured). It is pegged to run on Android 6.0 Marshmallow-based MIUI 8, and support dual-SIM (Nano+Nano) slots.

While earlier leaks tipped at a dual-camera setup at the back, latest leaks point at a 16-megapixel rear camera and a 4-megapixel front camera. The Xiaomi 5s may support a fingerprint scanner, and is expected to sport an iPhone 7-like tactile home button. Connectivity options include 4G LTE, Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac, Bluetooth 4.2, GPS, USB Type-C and NFC support. The smartphone is said to measure 144.5x69.2x7.2mm and weigh 147 grams.

We recommend you take all the above mentioned details with a grain of salt, and wait till Xiaomi announces official details on September 27.
