More ‘real’ photos of the Xiaomi Mi5, plus specs leaked


xiaomi mi5 leaked

Chinese media have managed to get their hands on 2 new photos that reportedly show the Xiaomi Mi5 with new physical home button design, plus are these the final specifications?

Xiaomi won’t be launching the Xiaomi Mi5 flagship this side of 2016, but they might have the device up on the market in time for the Chinese New Year (around Feb), this might explain why more details and purported images of the new phone have been showing up more frequently.

Xiaomi Mi5 Photos and specs

Two new Xiaomi Mi5 photos give us another view of the flagship phone. The title image (above) clearly shows the front of the phone, and also an oval physical home button where a fingerprint scanner might be held. This would be interesting as Xiaomi already have the Redmi Note 3 with rear fingerprint scanner, perhaps suggesting this is the only good solution for a budget fingerprint scanner, where as flagship phones will get physical buttons.

The second image seems to show the interior of the phone and the metal internal chassis that will keep the next flagship nice and solid. Again there is a space at the bottom of the phone for an oval home button.

Attached to the chassis Chinese media believe the final Xiaomi Mi5 spec will include a Snapdragon 820 chipset, 4GB  RAM, 5-inch 1920 x 1080 display, options for 16-64GB internal memory, dual SIM LTE, and a rose gold colour option.

What do you make of these latest Xiaomi Mi5 leaks? Are we finally looking at the real phone?

    Superb if it’s going to be 5″ FullHD.

    I hope they fit a 5.2in screen on something a bit larger than a redmi 2

    No 4k screen?

      4k will be “like, SO last year!!1” when this phone comes out (2016), that’s why they decided to include an 8k screen.

        1920 x 1080 display is not a 8k and for sure not a 4k. 4k I have in my Mi note pro and looks super, have to admit…

          Oh.. you were serious.

          In that case you do not have a 4K screen, only a 2K one, and you have a 5.7″ screen, and not a 5″ one, They’re not the same category. this is a small phone and it doesn’t really need a resolution larger than FHD.
          Also, all of these are just rumors for now.

            2k I have, you are correct. 4k shoots, my mistake. I know that all these are rumors, but for a so new mobile, the screen should be better, my beleive…

              Well, sure, but there’s a point where it’s just not practical to increase resolution, making it a pointless waste of battery life & performance, and for 5″ phones that’s 1080p.

              …but then again, the pixel fetishists (as yourself, perhaps) will probably disagree 😛

      Thanks! I checked and totally is! Every sensor and all are in place…
      After the “render” with the mx4 pro button, now this with the mtouch is just too much!

    I believe that the 2nd picture is actually the back panel of the screen module. If not, then we’ll be looking at a very deep fingerprint button.

    too meizish, I hope it’s not the real mi5.

    Just a gut feeling but what if Xiaomi launches two versions of the Mi5; a cheaper version to fill their infamous 1999 RMB price slot and a more expensive pro or plus version to be sold for around 2699-2999?

    A snapdragon 820 with only 1080p? Seems like a bad move…Frankly, Xiaomi had better move to 2K if they want this to compete with the avalanche of middle and high 2K phones coming out next year from companies such as Meizu, One Plus, LeTv e.t.c

    Hoping they do a 5.5 inch version with 2K, 4GB RAM and the 820 as well as a 5.2 inch 1080p, 3GB ram with the Helio X20…
