The video is accompanied by supposed press renders and claims of a Snapdragon 820 SoC.

The new press renders show the Xiaomi Mi 5 in Black, Gold, White, and Pink colors. A hands-on video embedded below claims to show the final retail model in action. With the recent trend of leaks and rumors on the Mi 5, it's only a matter of time before the Chinese manufacturer officially lifts the curtains off of their next flagship smartphone.

A second SKU is also rumored to be nearly identical expect for its 5.2-inch FHD display, 3 GB RAM, and 16 GB eMMC.

As for other sizes, the Mi 5 Plus is still rumored to be a 5.5-inch and/or 5.7-inch offering with a resolution of 2560 x 1440 pixels, a Snapdragon 820 SoC, 4 GB RAM, and 32 GB eMMC. More is expected to be revealed by CES 2016 or MWC 2016 at the latest.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
