Despite its smartphones not being widely available in Europe or the U.S., Xiaomi decided to unveil its new flagship at Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2016 in Barcelona, Spain on Wednesday.

Another important difference between the three versions is that the 32GB and 64GB models have 3GB of RAM, while the Pro 128GB version has 4GB.

The 32 and 64GB versions have a 3D glass back cover, while the Pro 128GB version has a 3D ceramic back cover.

All three feature an attractive, almost bezel-free, 5.15-inch 1080p display, weigh just 129g, and will ship with a 3,000mAh battery that supports Qualcomm's Quick Charge 3.0 fast-charging technology.

The 16MP rear camera on the three versions of the Xiaomi Mi5 is not only flush with the back cover, but also uses a Sony IMX298 sensor featuring 4-axis OIS, PDAF, DTI tech and can take 4K videos. At the front is a 2um 4MP camera.

The Xiaomi Mi5, which is expected to be released in select markets mainly within Asia Pacific next month, will be available in black, white and gold.

The RRP of the 32GB version is RMB1,999, the 64GB RMB 2,299 and the Pro 128GB version is RMB 2,999.
