Xiaomi Mi 5 had launched back in February 2016, and grabbed a lot of attention among other flagship devices. The smartphone had a 6GB RAM variant, also packed Snapdragon 820 at an affordable price tag (even a bit lesser than OnePlus 3 with similar specs). Now, the Mi5 is about to say goodbye to the market. But it’s not the end, other retail chains in international level will keep selling the device even if the company unlisted the device. The device also expected to get a great price cut, as the new players came to the mainstream area.
