Xiaomi Mi5 is due and the phone has already featured in several leaks and certifications. Now a seemingly genuine picture of the Xiaomi Mi 5 has cropped up and it shows off the thin bezels and the physical home button. Just recently a bunch of other Xiaomi Mi 5 pictures were doing the rounds on the Internet only to be quickly dismissed as photoshopped images.


The phone in the feature comes with a thinned out bezel and an actual physical home key which is very much unlike of Xiaomi but still can be admissible as a distant possibility. It is worth noting that the physical key looks pretty much similar to the ones found on the Samsung phones and so does the speaker holes at the bottom.

Xiaomi Mi 5 is expected to come with a Fingerprint sensor which seems to be embedded in the home key but the leaked pictures are also accompanied with patent drawings which speak about a fingerprint reader mostly embedded in the display. Apart from the above mentioned points, the pictures don’t reveal much but rest assured that Xiaomi will be launching the Mi 5 with top of the line hardware at an affordable price point, something it manages to do with all its products.


In all likelihood, the Mi 5 will also feature a Type-C USB port and comes equipped with the pressure sensitive touch, similar to the Apple’s 3D Touch. So the earlier leaked pictures from Zaeke seems to be in line with the freshly leaked pictures, although they don’t match up exactly. The latest rumors also reveals the pricing of the phone; 3GBRAM/32GB Storage variant would retail for $309 (apprx. Rs 20,085) and the 4GB/64GB variant for $355 (apprx. Rs 23,075). The Xiaomi Mi 5 is expected to be unveiled in January 2016 and if it does herald with the rumoured specs and the price we were speaking about the Mi 5 will surely prove to be a bang for the bucks.
