What do you think of these purported Xiaomi Mi5 specifications?

If rumours are correct, Xiaomi will continue to keep their flagship Mi phones smaller than the norm with Xiaomi Mi5 details pointing at a 2K, 5.2-inch display.

Xiaomi recently received a patent for its own fingerprint scanning technology, a feature found in many high-end devices, and one which is now tipped for inclusion in the Mi5.

Not only a fingerprint scanner though, new rumours also tell us that Xiaomi will continue to offer their top of the range phone with a smaller display. The current Mi4 has a 5-inch panel, where as the Mi5 is believed to get a 5.2-inch screen with 2560 x 1440 resolution. The norm for his level of phone is current 5.5-inch.

Qualcomm seems to be on board still providing a Snapdragon 810 SoC, there will be 4GB RAM too and a 3000mAh battery. The final detail we hear today is that the main camera will be a 16 mega-pixel model with OIS.

This year Xiaomi already launched the Mi Note at a higher price tag, but we believe the Mi5 will retain the trademark 1999 Yuan price tag for China.

What do you make of these Mi5 specs? Do you think a 2K resolution on a 5.2-inch display is a little overkill?
