More images and details leak on Xiaomi Mi 5
Just days after an online retailer leaked the Mi 5 specifications, a new source from Zaeke.com now claims almost identical specifications and even leaked images. Accordingly, the Mi 5 is expected to be a 5.2-inch smartphone with a resolution of either 1080p or a 1440p (2560 x 1440), a Snapdragon 820 SoC, 3 to 4 GB RAM, and 32 GB or 64 GB eMMC depending on the SKU.
Other features include 16 MP rear and 13 MP front cameras, an integrated fingerprint sensor on the Home button, a non-removable 3600 mAh battery, USB Type-C with Quick Charge 3, and Android 6.0 Marshmallow with the MIUI 7 UI.
The retail price of the smartphone is expected to be in the 300 to 400 Euro range. It was previously listed to be as much as $600 USD, but this may simply be the inflated import price and could be different for buyers in Europe. Xiaomi is expected to make official announcements on the Mi 5 this coming January 5th at CES.
The manufacturer recently shrugged off the fact that it missed its lofty sales target of 100 million units for all of 2015.
