What are the specifications of Xiaomi Mi5? Is it considered a high end phone? Will it replace expensive phones?

Before listing the specifications and features of Xiaomi MI5 smartphone, we will introduce Xiaomi Company.
The Chinese company Xiaomi is the fourth biggest company for smartphones worldwide. Even though it was established 5 years ago, it managed to become a competitor to the biggest companies in the smartphone industry. It even is described as “China’s Apple” because of the growth it made and their phones qualities.
The first smartphone Xiaomi launched was in August 2011, and ever since, the company started manufacturing and improving innovative smartphones. They are now ranked fourth worldwide and are now competing in the European and Middle Eastern markets. Even though Apple and Samsung are still the best two, Xiaomi managed to prove itself in the market.
They follow a strategy of manufacturing high end phones with excellent specifications that matches Apple and Samsung phones, with somewhat affordable prices. They rely on minimal profit to get a bigger market share.
