Xiaomi’s Hugo Barra talks about the new Mi 5 flagship

Hugo Barra sat down with Vlad Savov from The Verge to talk about Mi5.


  • Xiaomi is great in China, India, Singapore and other already presence-covered markets.
  • Mi5 is not launching in other markets apparently anytime soon. “One day”.
  • Mi Note was the first phone to introduce this kind of build/design with curved glass.
  • Ceramic on the Mi 5 Pro feels a lot better than glass.
  • Price is still insanely low and mindblowing, but you still can’t buy it in the US/EU/Outside of the core Mi markets. Time to plan a trip to China!
