Leaked Xiaomi Mi 5s renders show dual rear cameras
Talk of a Mi 5s smartphone with two rear cameras emerged just a few days ago and new unconfirmed renders of the device are supporting these rumors. The Mi 5s should be a mid-cycle refresh of the current Mi 5 and the renders appear to be promoting its high quality chassis and thin design.
While there is no evidence that these leaks are authentic, it supports the recent announcement from Xiaomi CEO Hugo Barra about a flagship-only future for the company where budget smartphones would be a thing of the past. The Mi 5s appears to be part of the transition from a mainstream smartphone series to a high-end one with standout features.
Based on existing rumors and what we know so far, the Xiaomi Mi 5s is expected to have an ultrasonic fingerprint sensor, pressure-sensitive 3D Touch display similar to the latest iPhone from Apple, a Snapdragon 820 SoC or higher, and 6 GB of RAM. Screen size should be either 5.2-inches or 5.5-inches like the recent offerings from OnePlus, ZTE, and Lenovo.
