Xiaomi is one of the best-known Chinese smartphone manufacturers in the world. This company is actually China’s number one smartphone OEM at the moment. THis company has already released a number of devices this year, including quite a few smartphones, various smart gadgets, and the new version of their Android-based UI, MIUI 7. That being said, Xiaomi is still expected to release their 2015 flagship, the Mi 5, before the end of the year, but that’s not the only Xiaomi-branded smartphone to have been rumored lately. A while back we shared some info regarding a Xiaomi-branded device with a curved display, while the image that leaked was quite probably photoshoped, the rumor lives on to this day, read on.
New info surfaced regarding this device. According to a report from China, the handset might be called Xiaomi Mi Edge, and even its specs surfaced in China. According to the available info, the phone might sport a 5.2-inch QHD (2560 x 1440) display by SHarp, 3 or 4GB of RAM and it will reportedly going to be fueled by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 808 64-bit hexa-core processor. This handset will also sport a fingerprint scanner, and a 16-megapixel camera has also been mentioned in this leak. These are not exactly full specs of the device, but it’s enough to get us started, and wonder is Xiaomi really developing such a device. Based on what we’ve seen thus far, it’s quite possible. Xiaomi Mi 5 will definitely launch before the end of the year, and Xiaomi has also been rumored to be working on the Mi 5 Plus handset, which would essentially be a bigger variant of the Mi 5. The Mi Edge might be a Mi 5 alternative for those who want to differentiate, something similar to what Samsung did with the S6 Edge and S6 Edge Plus.
Another thing worth mentioning here, is the fact that this handset will almost certainly include some metal in its build, at least its frame will be made out of metal, if not the whole device. There you have it, another Mi Edge rumor. If anything else pops up, we’ll make sure to let you know. We haven’t exactly heard much about this device by now, but if it really exists, we ought to see some leaked images or something of the sort shortly, so stay tuned.
