Xiaomi may already be working on a successor to its flagship smartphone, the Mi 5. According to a report by MyDrivers, the device will be called the Mi 5s, and sport a pressure-sensitive display similar to the one used on the Apple iPhone 6s and 6s Plus. Further, the smartphone may sport Qualcomm's ultrasonic fingerprint setup and a dual-camera setup at the back. The device is also tipped to house 6GB of RAM, which should make it more competitive against devices such as the LeEco Le Max 2 and the OnePlus 3. However, those hoping for a larger screen or a higher resolution display may be disappointed, as the device is expected to retain the 5.15-inch Full HD display found on the Mi 5. It is also possible that Xiaomi will upgrade the chipset to the rumoured Snapdragon 823 (or SD821), which is speculated to be a higher-clocked variant of the SD820 currently used in the Mi 5. The phone is tipped to be launched later this year.

Reports of Xiaomi planning to use a pressure sensitive display on its flagship phone aren't new. Back in October 2015, it was rumoured that Xiaomi had filed patents for a pressure-sensing screen technology, similar to Apple’s 3D Touch. It was also speculated that the company may partner with Synaptics to utilise the latter’s ClearForce technology on the Mi 5. This did not occur, and Xiaomi launched its flagship with a standard touchscreen display.
