At its first ever MWC press event, Xiaomi showed off its Mi 5, an affordable and elegant 5.15-inch smartphone that's sadly available only in China and India.

Affordable pricing

The device's 128GB variant will sell for 2,699 yuan (which converts to about $415, £295 or AU$575). But the base model will have 32GB of storage and cost just 1,999 yuan ($305, £220 and AU$425).

Smooth ceramic design

Instead of a metal or glass body, the Mi 5 has a ceramic backing, which feels like marble.

Good luck getting it

As I mentioned, the Mi 5 is only available in China and India, so those in the US, UK and Australia will be hard pressed to find it in shops, but it should be on sale online. For more on CNET's MWC 2016 coverage, click here.
