These Xiaomi Mi 5 leaked images don’t look too convincing


There’s been a lot of info coming over from China regarding the Xiaomi Mi 5. However, this is also the time when notorious trolls take to the internet to spread hoaxes… and we might just be looking at an example.

We managed to gather the best spec bits of the Mi 5 sometime back, and today we’re being treated to what are being called Xiaomi Mi 5 pictures.

Take a look for yourself.

The pictures depict a phone with the new-age under-digitiser black bezels, made famous by Elephone and a few Letv (LeEco now) phones.

Speaking of LeEco, the pictures in question bear an uncanny resemblance to the LeEco Le 1 X600 which came out last year. It could well be possible that what we’re seeing is the result of a bored photoshopper’s free time.

The Xiaomi Mi 5 itself is expected to be a phone worth spending your time on leaks and rumours for. Besides these leaks, we also heard rumours of Xiaomi working on an Apple Pay rival.

The phone will be unveiled at MWC 2016 on the 24th. We’ll be there, so stay tuned!

      2800mAh with a SD820 and Quad HD?? Your going to need about 3 spare batteries to make it through an entire day with the G5.

        +1
        Innovation would be to make it through a normal to heavy usage day with that battery!

          There are plenty including the LG G3 and G4 both of those were 3000.

            depending on the thickness still average

              February 19, 2016

              Rumors suggest the G5 will be around 8.2mm thick. There is no excuse for a 2800mAh battery in a phone that thick. The Gionee Marathon M5 is 8.6mm and has a 6020mAh.

              Has all the same components of any other phone, a SoC (MT6753), RAM (3GB), camera (13mp) etc. Doesn’t matter how good or bad the phone is the point is it’s a thin phone with a huge battery. Just because the G5 is a better phone doesn’t mean it’s components are larger in size.

        Now we have LG fans here on gizchina.
        These kids are so delusional.

        They should try this new GizChina:

          Lol. I almost clicked on it! My boss would have had a field day with me for that one.

          Anytime there is Xiaomi news we get the “Xiomai doesn’t innovate” and “X company is so much better” comments.
