Numerous reports had indicated that Xiaomi's upcoming Mi 5S, an advanced version of Mi 5 would have same design language, but would come with major upgrade in terms on hardware. Now, the newly released teaser of Mi 5S says otherwise.

Xiaomi Mi 5S' latest promotional image shows the device featuring dual-cameras on the back, thus confirming that the device will boast bokeh effect feature.

Earlier this month, Apple too launched iPhone 7 Plus with dual-camera having similar feature. That said, Xiaomi is not a copy cat, it had actually introduced it in mid-range Redmi Pro, which was launched in July.

What is bokeh effect?

The bokeh effect is a SLR (Single Lens Reflex) camera feature derived from a Japanese word "boke-aji", which means blur (or haze).

How it works?

For instance, when a user takes a shot using Xiaomi device, the device's primary camera takes high-quality sharp image of the subject, while secondary snapper captures in-depth information of the subject's surrounding and de-focuses the background, to make it look blurry.
