Xiaomi is the one of the fastest growing smartphone manufacturers in the world. This China-based company has released a ton of devices this year, and as they’re preparing to launch the Xiaomi Mi 4C which leaked recently, we’re here to take a look at yet another Xiaomi-branded handset which just leaked. I don’t know if you recall, but we talked about Xiaomi ‘Arch’ / ‘Edge’ quite recently. This was first rumored back in December last year, and its specs leaked at the end of last month, along with its probable naming.
We’ll talk about the Xiaomi Mi Edge specs in a bit, but let’s first tackle this newly leaked image which surfaced in China. If you take a look at the provided image, you’ll notice that the pictured device sports curved glass on the back, and that its frame is made out of metal. The device seems to sport a Type-C USB 3.0 port on the bottom, which is flanked by bottom-facing loudspeakers. Both the camera and the LED flash are located in the upper left corner of the phone’s back, and Xiaomi’s logo is also present on the device’s back side. Now, we’ve seen a leaked render of this device’s front side, but that image looked heavily photoshopped. This handset, however, looks rather sleek and seems like a possibly legit leak, though take it with a grain of salt, as it usually goes with leaks and rumors.
That being said, let’s talk about this device’s reported specs, shall we. According to a rumor which surfaced quite recently, the Xiaomi Mi Edge will sport a 5.2-inch QHD (2560 x 1440) display by Sharp, 3 or 4GB of RAM and will be powered by the Snapdragon 808 64-bit hexa-core SoC. The 16-megapixel camera will be located on the back of this phone, and you can also expect the device to sport a fingerprint scanner. Android Lollipop will come pre-installed here, and Xiaomi’s MIUI 7 skin will be available on top of Google’s operating system. That’s more or less it, keep in mind that Xiaomi is also expected to release their Mi 5 Plus flagship before the end of this year. Either way, stay tuned for more info, we’ll report back soon.
