Xiaomi has unveiled its newest flagship smartphones – Xiaomi Mi 5s and Mi 5s Plus.

Now, that sounds a little familiar, right? Well, it reminds us of the naming scheme of Apple with their iPhones. We’re not saying that Xiaomi copied Apple, but they probably did. Nothing wrong with that though.

Moving on, the Xiaomi Mi 5s is the successor to the Mi 5, which was launched earlier in February this year. It seems really odd to follow up on a relatively new phone, but Xiaomi did it anyway.
