It has only been a week since Xiaomi Mi 5s has been launched here and next week we will be getting its sibling, the Mi 5s Plus officially here in Nepal. Vatsal Implex, the authorized distributor of Xiaomi phones is launching the Xiaomi Mi 5s Plus in Nepal next week and the customers will be able to buy the phone by the end of January.
Xiaomi Mi 5s Plus is larger and more powerful than its little brother, the Xiaomi Mi 5s. In addition to that, it gets a bigger battery and has a dual camera at the back. In Nepal, the authorized distributor will be bringing the 4GB/64GB variant of the Xiaomi Mi 5s Plus. The specs of the Xiaomi Mi 5s Plus is as follows:
- 5.7″ 1080p IPS Display
- Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 SoC
- 4GB RAM
- 64GB Internal Storage
- `Dual 13MP Rear camera with f/2.0
- 4MP Ultra Pixel Camera
- 3800mAh battery with Quick Charge 3.0
- USB C Charging
- Rear Finger print scanner
- Dual SIM 4G LTE connectivity
Since the Xiaomi Mi 5s is priced at Rs.50,000, we can expect the phone to launch at a higher price. We can expect the Xiaomi Mi 5s Plus to launch at around Rs.60,000 in Nepal.
I have used the Xiaomi Mi 5s Plus personally and it feels really food in the hand. However, you may or may not like the texture at the back. It looks a lot like the Xiaomi Redmi Pro which is a mid range phone. Also, the camera isn’t as impressive as it sounds on paper. Apart from that, there are very few things to not like about the Mi 5s Plus. Even though the screen has resolution of just 1920×1080, all the text and videos look really crisp. Unless you don’t put the phone side by side against Samsung flagship phones, you are unlikely to call it a bad IPS panel.
