The Xiaomi Mi 5X is now official. The handset has been unveiled at the company's event in China and it brings the dual rear camera setup seen on the company's flagship Mi 6 down to mid-range segment. Xiaomi Mi 5X is priced at 1,499 Yuan (approximately Rs 15,000) and will be available in gold, black and rose gold colour options.
