Rumours: Xiaomi Mi 5 unofficial image and tech specs appear?


A new unofficial image of Xiaomi Mi 5 has appeared on Weibo recently and it actually looks quite convincing. It also seems that the device will feature a physical home button on the front which is a first for Xiaomi and in terms of design, it looks similar to the Mi Note series. 

The render shows a device that looks like it’s made of the traditional Xiaomi plastic cover, but rumours state otherwise as it’s said that it will come in a full metal body. There’s no image of the back to support this, but according to rumours we expect the device’s tech specs to be:-

  • Snapdragon 820 processor
  • 3GB/4GB RAM
  • 32GB/64GB storage (expandable memory unknown)
  • 5.2-inch with 2K resolution
  • 21MP rear camera + 8MP front camera 
  • Force Touch/ 3D Touch pressure sensitive technology
  • MIUI 7

Furthermore, the Mi 5 might make an appearance officially on 21 January 2016, and will go on retail sale in February 2016. As usual, we will keep you Xiaomi fans in the loop.
