Xiaomi Mi 5 press renders surface; Could be announced on Jan 21

While we have been continuously hearing rumours about the upcoming flagship Xiaomi Mi 5, the press renders of the handset have now surfaced.


The alleged press renders of the upcoming flagship Xiaomi Mi 5 have been leaked online. The render, which shows only the front side of the handset, reveals a physical home button on the bottom edge, making it the first Xiaomi handset with a physical button. However, it does seem legitimate considering the fingerprint scanner is expected to be embedded in the home button.

While the source could not provide any details about the hardware, rumours suggest that the flagship Xiaomi Mi 5 would flaunt a 5.2 inch Quad HD display with the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor and 4 GB of RAM. The source however did mention that the handset could be announced on January 21, 2016, followed by the launch somewhere in February.
