The Xiaomi Mi 5s is one of the upcoming high-end smartphones. This device has been rumored for a while now, and the phone got certified by AnTuTu quite recently as well. AnTuTu’s listing confirmed its partial specification, which is something we’ll talk about in a second, and the rumors are constantly rolling out. Some people think that the Mi 5s might launch alongside the Mi Note 2, a device which is expected to be announced soon, while others think that Xiaomi will host a separate event in order to unveil this smartphone. No matter what the case may be, another Xiaomi Mi 5s leak just surfaced, and is accompanied by a rumor, read on.

According to Wang Yang, a member of the IHS Technology team, the Xiaomi Mi 5s will sport Qualcomm’s ultrasonic fingerprint scanner (called ‘Sense ID’). The source claims that this fingerprint scanner will be placed underneath the glass on the Xiaomi Mi 5s, and that it will be the first of its kind on a smartphone. Now, in addition to this rumor, we also have a leak to share with you, though this does not come from the same source. The image you can see down below leaked in China recently, and it shows off this fingerprint scanner in action, and the Xiaomi Mi 5s is also mentioned in it, as you can see. So, if this rumor and leak are accurate, we can expect to see Qualcomm’s ultrasonic fingerprint scanner included in the Xiaomi Mi 5s, which essentially means that the phone might ship without a physical home key, as the fingerprint scanner is expected to be included under the glass (quite probably below the display).

As mentioned earlier, the Xiaomi Mi 5s got certified by AnTuTu quite recently. According to that info, the device will sport a fullHD display, and even though the listing does not mention it, you can expect to see a 5.15-inch panel here, as Xiaomi is expected to use Xiaomi Mi 5’s display here. Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 821 64-bit quad-core SoC is expected to fuel this smartphone, along with the Adreno 530 GPU. Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow was also mentioned by AnTuTu, and the company will include their MIUI 8 OS on top of Google’s Android OS. In addition to all this, the Mi 5s is rumored to sport a 3,490mAh battery and two nano SIM card slots, while it will be made out of metal and glass.
