Xiaomi is getting ready to launch the Mi 5 in India. The Chinese vendor has sent out invites to the media for a press event on March 31, where it will announce the Snapdragon 820-toting handset for the Indian market.

The Mi 5 features a 5.15-inch Full HD IPS LCD display backed by Gorilla Glass 4, with a quad-core Snapdragon 820 SoC powering the device. It looks like we'll see the 32GB version with 3GB of RAM and 1.8GHz Kryo cores initially, with the Pro 128GB model with 4GB of RAM and 2.15GHz CPU made available at a later date. Other specs of the Mi 5 include a 16MP camera with 4-axis image stabilization, 4MP front shooter, Wi-Fi ac, LTE, Bluetooth 4.2, and a 3000mAh battery.

On the software front, the phone runs the latest version of MIUI 7, which is now based on Marshmallow. The Chinese pricing for the 32GB variant is ¥1,999, which comes out to ₹20,500. We don't know the exact price of the phone in the Indian market, but Xiaomi has a history of being very competitive when it comes to the pricing of its handsets.

We'll be bringing you all the details live from the event, so stay tuned to Android Central for more later this week. Indian readers, what do you think will be the pricing of the Mi 5 in the country?
