Xiaomi Mi 5 to get a Windows 10 variant as well

We already know that Xiaomi's upcoming Mi 5 flagship smartphone will be officially unveiled later this month. We also know that the device will be available for media preview at this year's MWC. But, in what could come as a surprise for many, we're now hearing that the handset could have a Windows 10 variant, too.

Aside from the OS, the Win 10 variant is said to be identical to its Android cousin. The rumor also suggests that the device will be made official at a simultaneous event in China and Barcelona (during this year's MWC), alongside the Android model.
While the news definitely comes as a surprise, this would not be the first time Xiaomi and Microsoft are partnering - last year they signed an agreement to provide Windows 10 Technical Preview support on the Mi 4, following which the ROM was released in December. The Mi Pad 2 64GB also comes in a Win 10 variant, although that's the full desktop OS, rather than the mobile one.

As for the Mi 5, while most of its specs is in rumors currently, what's been confirmed so far is that the handset is powered by Qualcomm's latest Snapdragon 820 chipset, and offers support for dual-SIM functionality and NFC. The company's Senior Vice President, Liwan Jiang, has reportedly also confirmed that the phone will sport a 1080p display, instead of the rumored QHD one.

Xiaomi Mi 5 is said to arrive in two different versions

Chinese smartphone makers sometimes like to launch their flagships in two different iterations, differently priced based on how much RAM and internal storage they pack. And now Xiaomi seems determined to take this to a new level, if a new rumor out of China is to be believed.

An alleged mobile industry insider is claiming that there will be two hardware versions for the Mi 5. One of them is pictured below, and is the one we've seen leaking a lot lately. This comes with 2.5D curved glass both on the front as well as on the back, and with a metal frame. This iteration will apparently come with 1080p screen resolution.

However, there will be a more premium model too, which will have a full metal body and a display with QHD resolution. Interestingly, the screen's size is said to be the same in both cases.

While this isn't mentioned, we assume that if Xiaomi will in fact create such differentiation, then the cheaper, glass model will also sport less RAM and storage than the metal one - perhaps 3GB and 32GB compared to 4GB and 64GB.

The Mi 5 should come with a 5.2-inch touchscreen, Qualcomm's Snapdragon 820 SoC at the helm, a fingerprint scanner embedded in the physical Home button on the front, a 16 MP rear camera, a 13 MP selfie snapper, and a 3,600 mAh battery. It will become official on January 21, with sales expected to start on February 8.

The Honor X3 tablet might be Huawei's big announcement at CES this year

As you may have heard, Huawei has scheduled its CES press conference for 10:00 AM local time in Las Vegas today, which we will be sure to cover, but a few leaks have been unearthed that might already give us some insight on what the Chinese giant has in store. Allegedly, Huawei won't be launching any new "D", "M" or "P" series devices at the venue, but might instead focus on a brand new tablet offer.

The device, dubbed the Honor X3 tablet, comes as a somewhat logical successor to last year's Huawei MediaPad X2, although as part of the Honor line and with a confusingly similar moniker to the Honor X5 smartphone.
Judging from the newly leaked specs and consequent renders, the Honor X3 tablet is shaping up as sizable 10.0-inch tablet with a slick and clean design and quite thin profile. Its body is said to measure 240 x 173 x 7.4mm, while still leaving room for a few physical buttons on the sides, what appear to be four speakers, as well as a front-mounted fingerprint reader.

Powering the DR-A01L tablet should be the OEM's own Kirin 935 octa-core chip, instead of the highly praised new Kirin 950 model, as previously suggested. We would have definitely preferred to see another Kirin 950 powerhouse device join the ranks of the Huawei Mate 8, which the OEM has promised to showcase during the event, but lower-end specs should also mean a more competitive price point. And with recent formidable competitors, like the Xiaomi Mi Pad 2, the Huawei Honor X3 has a tough road ahead of it and can use any help it can get.

Android 6.0 update for Xiaomi Mi 4, Mi Note, and Mi 3 in final testing stages

Earlier this month, it was revealed that the Marshmallow update for the Mi 4 and Mi Note smartphones would be arriving soon. And now, it has been announced that the update is in the final stages of testing.

The announcement, which also revealed that the Mi 3 will also be getting the update, was made by the Chinese company's MIUI operations manager on Weibo. He also posted a screenshot of the update (shown below), revealing that it will weigh in at 518MB, but won't bring a new iteration of the MIUI interface, which means the version would stay at 7.

It's worth mentioning that the update in question is a beta update, meaning it might have some bugs. The final version of the update is expected to roll out a few months from now.
