Mysterious Xiaomi smartphone with octa-core processor surfaces; Could be the Mi 5c

While we have already seen quite a few new smartphone offerings from Xiaomi, yet another smartphone has now surfaced.


A mysterious Xiaomi smartphone has surfaced online. Based on the design of the smartphone, it looks very much similar to the Mi 5 series. The specs listing of the smartphone reveal a 2.2 GHz octa processor, which we assume would be the MediaTek Helio P20 along with 3 GB of RAM and 64 GB of storage under the hood.

Interestingly, the upcoming Xiaomi smartphone also carries the pill shaped home button, which we suppose would have the fingerprint scanner embedded within. Based on the images and specs, we expect the handset to be the affordable variant of the Mi 5 and may even release as the Mi 5c. However, no details on the release and pricing as yet.
