More leaked images have hit the web of the Xiaomi Meri, AKA the Xiaomi Mi5C!
After releasing the Xiaomi Mi5S and Mi5S Plus, Xiaomi are now rumoured to be working on a new budget Mi5C to replace the Mi4C from last year. The Xiaomi Mi4C hasn’t managed to grab much attention, but it was basically the ‘bread and butter’ version of Xiaomi’s flagship range of phones, the Mi5C looks set to build on that with new design and features.
Where as the previous phone was quite boxy the new Mi5C is a more attractive phone and dare we say it, more iPhone-esque. A 2.5D curved display dominates the front of the phone while the rear features an anodised alloy chassis.
We can see from these spy photos that the Xiaomi Mi5C has a similar fingerprint button as the Mi5S and that the overall design is a more classy one which better materials, thinner bezels and a slimmer overall size.
