Xiaomi said to be preparing a Mi 5 with Windows 10 Mobile

Chinese smartphone maker Xiaomi may be preparing to launch its first smartphone to run Windows 10 Mobile out of the box. The company will reportedly be producing a variant of its upcoming Mi5 handset that runs Microsoft's phone operating system.

From GizmoChina:

Moreover, it is worth noting that Xiaomi is expected to release the Windows 10 variant for Mi 5 without altering the hardware which is somewhat exciting. Everything remains same as that of the regular Mi 5 only thing that is going to change is the software or operating system.

While this would be Xiaomi's first phone to run Windows 10 Mobile at launch, the company offers a tablet, the Mi Pad 2, that comes with Windows 10. There is also a Windows 10 Mobile ROM available for the Xiaomi Mi 4.

We'll know more when the Mi 5 is unveiled on Feb. 24.
