Rumour: Xiaomi Mi 5 to come in a Windows 10 Mobile variant for MWC 2016

Xiaomi Mi 5

Microsoft has an unusually cosy relationship with Chinese OEM Xiaomi .  Microsoft has crafted a Windows 10 Mobile ROM to run specifically on their Mi 4 handset, and in turn the company has released a  number of Windows 10 tablets.

Now the latest rumour from China is that Xiaomi is planning to release a Windows 10 Mobile version of their upcoming flagship Mi 5 handset.

The device would apparently be identical, including running the powerful Snapdragon 820 processor and is expected to be launched at a simultaneous event in China and Mobile World Congress 2016 on February 24th, suggesting we may also see an international release outside China of the handset.

Other specs include 4 GB RAM and 16, 64 and 128 GB storage, NFC and dual-SIM.
