The elusive Xiaomi Mi 5 is among the most hotly anticipated smartphones at this point. Now, its full specs and pricing details are out in the open.

The general belief was that Xiaomi would launch its latest Mi 5 flagship smartphone in 2015, but it later came to light that it would delay the release so it could equip the handset with Qualcomm's powerful Snapdragon 820 chip.

The rumor mill has been busy churning in anticipation of the Xiaomi Mi 5 release and various details have slipped through the cracks, painting a pretty clear picture of what to expect.

We just heard of Xiaomi Mi 5's Feb. 20 unveiling, and a retailer listing now seems to bolster that claim, while also revealing the complete list of specifications and the price point of the smartphone.

More specifically, retailer GearBest has listed a product page for the Xiaomi Mi 5, revealing that the smartphone's release will be on Feb. 21, i.e. one day after the unveiling.

When it comes to hardware specifications, the GearBest product page confirms most of what has already been rumored about the Xiaomi Mi 5. The next-generation flagship smartphone will boast a 5.2-inch QHD display (2,560 x 1,440 pixels), a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor just as expected, 4 GB of RAM, and a 3,600 mAh battery (non-removable).

In terms of internal storage capacity, GearBest lists models with either 16 GB or 64 GB of locker space. Other specs include a 16-megapixel rear camera, an 8-megapixel selfie snapper, a fingerprint reader, dual-SIM support, and Android 5.1 (MIUI 7) on the software side. Color options include white, black, and gold.

GearBest lists the various Xiaomi Mi 5 models with two different prices: $625 for the 16 GB variants and $728 for the higher-capacity 64 GB models.

Keep in mind, however, that Xiaomi has yet to officially introduce its new Mi 5 flagship smartphone, which means that this GearBest early listing may or may not turn out to be accurate. Premature retail listings can sometimes get some details wrong, and it's always best to take everything with a grain of salt until the formal announcement.
