Xiaomi Mi 5 is Likely to be Announced on December 3, Here is All That you Need to Know

Xiaomi has been doing a lot of things lately but the plans to launch its next flagship – the Mi 5 – seems to have been unusually delayed. The company had announced the Mi 4 in July 2014, but this year around they seemed to be more focussed on the mid-range phones like the Mi 4i and the Mi 4c. However, the good news is that Xiaomi will most probably be treating us with an early Christmas gift in the form of Mi 5. The Mi 5 is expected to uphold the Xiaomi family tradition of packing the flagships to the brim with beefed up hardware, at a price point which give the people the run for their money.


It’s not that we are completely oblivious to the Mi 5 specs and what new features it might bring to the table, a series of leaks have helped us construct an image of how Xiaomi’s next flagship would be.

Leaksfly, a Chinese tipster had posted on Weibo that Xiaomi will be conducting an event on December 3 in which it will be unraveling the Mi 5. The flagship is most likely to be powered by the Snapdragon 820 SoC which will be succeeding this year’s not so famous Snapdragon 810, although Qualcomm says the chipset is expected to power the devices from the first half of 2016.

On the contrary, Xiaomi might very well opt for the Snapdragon 810 V2.1 SoC, which is currently powering the Nexus 6P and this might be due to the alleged delay in Snapdragon 820 chipsets. Apart from the processing unit, the Mi 5 will be fitted with 4GB of RAM and the Graphic processing department will be piloted by Adreno 530 GPU.

The flagship is expected to come with a 5.3-inch QHD display resulting in a pixel density of 554 ppi. On the storage front, the device might offer 16GB and 64GB, and this might be the Achilles heel for the Mi 5 as it is not expected to offer the microSD card slot, a major complaint with the Mi 4 as well. For Shutterbugs delight, Xiaomi should be opting for a 16-Megapixel primary sensor with dual LED flash. It still remains unknown if the Mi 5 will come with Optical Image Stabilisation feature, if so than it can boast of a great imaging experience.

The display is expected to feature a pressurized touch panel similar to the Apple Force touch and in all likelihood Xiaomi might spruce up the phone with a fingerprint scanner and a Type-C USB port.

The rumor mills are also pointing towards a large screened Xiaomi Mi 5 Plus which makes sense considering the fact that everyone in the industry are doing the same, but again it is just a rumor and needs to be admitted with the proverbial pinches of salt.

How to Get SMS Alerts for Gmail via Twitter

How do you get SMS notifications on your mobile phone for important emails in your Gmail? Google doesn’t support text notifications for their email service but Twitter does. If we can figure out a way to connect our Twitter and Gmail accounts, the Gmail notifications can arrive as text on our mobile via Twitter. Let me explain:Twitter allows you to follow any @user via a simple SMS. They provide short codes for all countries (see list) and if you text FOLLOW to this shortcode following by the  username, any tweets from that user will arrive in your phone as text notifications. For instance, if you are in the US, you can tweet FOLLOW labnol to 40404 to get my tweets as text messages. Similarly, users in India can text FOLLOW labnol to 9248948837 to get the tweets via SMS.The short code service of Twitter can act as a Gmail SMS notifier. You create a new Twitter account, set the privacy to private and this account will send a tweet when you get a new email in Gmail. Follow this account …

Another SEO tool drops the word “SEO”

Majestic, the link intelligence database that many SEOs have come to use on a daily basis, has dropped the “SEO” from it’s brand and from its domain name, to become Since most people won’t have used Google’s site migration tool before, here’s what it looks like once you press the “go” button:

In actual fact – there’s a minor bug in the tool. The address change is to the https version of (which GWT makes us register as a separate site) but that message incorrectly omits that. Fortunately, elsewhere in GWT its clear the omission is on Google’s side, not a typo from the SEO. It is most likely that the migration tool was developed before the need for Google to have separate verification codes for http and https versions of the site.
