No physical home button
The live photos those have hit the web show that the Xiaomi Mi 5X slated to go official in a few days will have a rear-facing fingerprint sensor at the top center.

Three color variants are seen
As seen in the previously leaked renders, the Xiaomi Mi 5X photos show that the smartphone might be launched in three color variants - Gold, Rose Gold, and Black.
3.5mm audio jack remains intact
The upcoming Xiaomi smartphone appears to feature well-chamfered edges as well as cute speaker grills at the bottom. Also, the antenna band seems to have a u-shaped design. Unlike the flagship Xiaomi Mi 6, this one appears to have the 3.5mm audio jack intact.
As mentioned above, the Xiaomi Mi 5X will have a dual camera setup at its rear. This camera unit is said to arrive with two rear cameras - a Sony IMX386 sensor and a Samsung S5K3M3 sensor for the wide angle and telephoto combination. Up front, there appears to be a 16MP selfie camera on board.
Hardware specs we expect
The upcoming Mi 5X is believed to feature a 5.5-inch display and make use of a Snapdragon 625 SoC that could be coupled with 4GB RAM. There are talks that we can expect a high-end model of the handset with the Snapdragon 660 SoC, 6GB RAM and 64GB storage space. It is likely to arrive with a USB Type-C port and get the power from a 3000mAh battery with 5V/2A fast charging support.
