Alleged Xiaomi Mi 5 leaks in a short hands-on video

xiaomi mi5

xiaomi-mi5-leak_1Xiaomi Mi 5 leaks and rumours have been coming thick and fast of late. A fresh one happens to give a peek at the device in not a render, not a picture but a full video!

We have our apprehensions about the genuinity of the video… more about which we’ll discuss after watching it again right below.

Now that you’re done watching the hands on video, let’s jump right back to the apprehension that we have about it being real. If you notice, the phone is nice and steady on the wooden stand, which makes you wonder if its only the screen and hands that are moving with a still (read: photoshopped) picture of a Xiaomi Mi 5… while in reality, the phone could be an Mi Note instead.

Just a theory.

On the other hand, if it is indeed a Xiaomi Mi 5, the ‘leakster’ got to be lauded for he has some good contacts and a very photogenic backdrop for a leaked video.

What do you think? Could be real?

    “If you notice, the phone is nice and steady on the wooden stand”

    It moves a little bit at 0:04, but never mind, this video really looks strange, probably it is a fake.

    This is FAKE! Button isn’t centered. Just a Mi Note PRO with a badly layered button. And who ever unlocks phone with sensor with the swipe?)))

    Nice to see other people who thinks that’s fake. Yeah, it suspiciously similar to Mi Note.

    Glad to see Gizchina didn’t fall to that very elaborate fake. On the other hand you have missed other *leaks* which looks like real deal.

    Very ugly if it s true, as ugly as the ZUK. But with the sucess of the ZUK maybe the design isn t important…
