Leaks prior to the phone’s announcement recommended the company is using Qualcomm’s ultrasonic technology, which it claimed makes it easy to scan your fingers even when they’re dirty or wet. If you’ve ever tried to unlock an iPhone with wet hands, you’ll know how annoying this issue can be.

The main alteration for the phones is a new Snapdragon 821 chipset and a metallic rear case. There’s also new Sony CMOS image sensor running the 12-megapixel camera on the Mi 5s, with dual-tone LED flash and 4K video recording. Whereas the Plus model has a dual-camera system.

The dual 13 megapixel cameras of Mi 5s Plus works similarly to those on the Huawei P9. One camera takes color images and the other captures only black and white images. The black and white sensor lacks the Bayer filter.  While capturing color images, the camera combines the output of both the sensors to enrich the final result.

Both models offer up to 128GB of storage. Whereas the 5s has up to 4GB of RAM and the Plus goes up to 6GB of RAM.
