Under the hood ticks a real performance beast - the Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 MSM8996 Pro chipset with 2x 2.15GHz Kryo cores and another pair of Kryo cores, but clocked at 2GHz.

In addition there is support for dual-band Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac, 802.11n 5GHz, Wi-Fi Hotspot, Wi-Fi Direct, Wi-Fi Display, and Bluetooth 4.2. Xiaomi Mi 5s Plus is virtually the same device, but with three differences - a larger display - 5.7-inch one that retains the FHD IPS panel, logically the model is larger in size, too. The display has a contrast ratio of 1300:1 and peak brightness of 500 cd/sq.m. The primary camera is the second main difference and packs two separate modules on the back. The first is with a 13MP Sony IMX258 sensor, while the second is monochrome and has a 13MP sensor, too. The third difference is the larger battery with a 3800 mAh capacity. Both models runs MIUI 8 based on Android 6.0 Marshmallow and are available in light grey, grey, rose-gold and gold colors. The 4/64GB version of Xiaomi Mi 5s costs CNY 1999 (USD 300), while the 6/128GB one is priced at CNY 2299 (USD 345). The same is the price for the 4/64GB version of Xiaomi Mi 5s Plus.Source
