Mere hours before the official launch, alleged pictures of the Xiaomi Mi5 have appeared online. In the latest in a long run of Xiaomi leaks, the purported Mi5 is seen running a benchmark app, thought to be AnTuTu 4.
Based on the previously leaked reports, the Xiaomi Mi5 will likely sport a QHD display, a Snapdragon 810 processor, 3 GB of RAM and a 20.7MP rear-facing camera. But the latest sighting on the benchmark site shows the handset carrying a Snapdragon 801 processor and 2GB of RAM.
In the meanwhile, the device seen in alleged images scoring an impressive 46,866 score, which appears to be pretty decent, given a dated chipset under the hood.
It would appear that the company could be thinking to launch two variants of the Mi5. The upcoming handset can be seen sporting very basic design, and it seems to be made out of plastic shell.
Xiaomi Mi5 - What to expect?
Aside from a 5-inch display, the Mi5 is rumored to come with a 64-bit Snapdragon 810 CPU, which would make it the second high-end Android smartphone with a 64-bit processor.
Other rumored specs included a healthy 3GB of RAM and 16GB/32GB of on-board storage. The smartphone is expected to launch with Android 5.0 Lollipop, presumably coated by Xiaomi's MIUI skin on top.
Xiaomi is rumoured to launch the much-awaited Mi5 on January 15 in China. Stay tuned to GizBot for more updates!
