Almost a year has passed since the Galaxy S6 has been released and it’s still one of the most popular flagships. However, Xiaomi Mi 5 has not been released yet hit the stores, but according to rumors, it will arrive sometime in February-March 2016 with some amazing specs.
The Galaxy S6 measures 143.4×70.5×6.8mm and weights 138 grams. It’s Samsung’s first device with a major design change, as the plastic back has been replaced with glass and the frame is now made of metal. However, the device is no longer water resistant and it lacks two important changes: a microSD card slot and the battery is fixed. There are not much rumors regarding the measurements of the Xiaomi Mi 5, but it will most likely be thinner than the Galaxy S5, as some rumors say that it will be only 5.1mm thick.
