We asked last night what company you think will be the first one to launch a Snapdragon 820 phone. It is almost as though Xiaomi bosses read the open thread and sent a message via a leak!
News is that the Xiaomi Mi 5 has leaked yet again, and this time there’s also a launch date that’s tagging along with the render.
Yesterday, we saw an image of an alleged Mi 5 depicting a slim size bezel; today’s leak depicts a more front-on Mi 5.
As for the launch date, we’re hearing that January 21st is when the Mi 5 will be finally shown off to the world, more than a year and a half after the launch of the Xiaomi Mi 4.

Worth noting is that the render shows a physical home button for the Mi 5. If that does turn out to be true, it’ll mark the first usage of a physical home button for a Xiaomi phone.
Now that even the mid-range Redmi Note 3 has a fingerprint sensor, you can safely assume that the Mi 5 will have one too. And if the physical home button is indeed a thing, there are chances that it’ll also be home to the fingerprint scanner.
How’s the Mi 5 shaping up for ya’ll?
