Xiaomi has yet to release the anticipated Redmi Note 2, but there’s already leaked pictures on the internet of a completely new Xiaomi device complete with a dual rear camera setup. Whether this picture is legitimate or not is up for debate, but we’ll give it the benefit of the doubt.
The device has a jet black glossy finish on its rear which looks to be plastic or glass. There’s a pair of flush rear cameras and a dual LED flash as well as the instantly familiar Mi logo. The device also seems to have some sort of metal frame around it, with a USB port at the bottom. There appears to be no speakers on the bottom or rear of the device, possibly meaning that it’ll have front facing speakers which would be a refreshing change from the norm.

As previously stated, we still have no idea about the legitimacy of this photo, nor do we have any idea where it would fit into Xiaomi’s device portfolio. We could potentially see this materializing as the Mi5, but the choice of a glossy black finish strikes us as an odd choice for a flagship product, unless it’s actually glass and it’s just tough to see in the photo. What do you think about this device? Does it seem legitimate? Where would it fit? Tell us in the comments.
