We’ve been seeing a ton of leaked Xiaomi material lately, mostly the alleged designs of Xiaomi Mi5 which have been leaking like crazy over the last couple of weeks, and especially since Xiaomi’s CEO announced that the company will launch their new flagship on January 15. We’re still not certain whether Xiaomi will launch the Mi5 or not, they have been teasing the Redmi Note 2, and that handset even got listed on Oppomart. Xiaomi will definitely launch the Redmi Note 2 and has even described it as a flagship handset in one of their teasers, so the question remains, will they launch the Mi5 as well? It remains to be seen, but we’ve seen a ton of Mi5 material lately, as I said, and they might actually launch both of these devices.
Talking about the Mi5 leaks, we have a new one to share with you. Four new alleged Xiaomi Mi4S / Mi5 images popped up in China, you can check all of them in the gallery below this article, and in one of them you can even see the benchmark result of the device. The phone in this pictures actually resembles the one that leaked several times now, although this one seems to have a somewhat bigger bezels on the sides. I could be wrong, but it seems like it, don’t get me wrong though, the bezels are still very thin. The device itself looks more like a Mi4S than Mi5 to be quite honest, judging by its design, but your opinion might be different, of course. Either way, we’re getting way too many leaks of the Mi4S / Mi5 and I do expect Xiaomi to pull the trigger sometime soon, it will be interesting to see if it will launch next to the Redmi Note 2 on January 15.
According to previous leaks, the Mi5 is expected to feature a 5.2-6″ 1080p or quadHD display along with 3 or 4GB of RAM and a 13-megapixel OIS camera on the back. Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 805 or 810 processor will power on this handset according to reports, and the device is rumored to cost 2,299 Yuan ($371) in China, which would be a great price for this thing considering its specs and design. Do you think Xiaomi will launch the Mi4’s successor on January 15 or not?
