While we have come across numerous references that Xiaomi s smartphone will feature a fingerprint scanner integrated into the home button at the front, the new photo shows the fingerprint scanner placed at the back. The photo (via PhoneArena), also confirms the presence of a laser autofocus alongside the camera, and an IR blaster at the top. Also visible at the bottom is the speaker grille and what looks like an USB Type-C port. Also Read - Top 5 OnePlus 9RT alternatives: OnePlus Nord 2 5G, Samsung Galaxy A52s 5G, more
Another interesting thing to note is the build of the Mi 5. As per the leaked photo, the smartphone will have a metal body with a plastic strip at the top with brushed metal finish. The antenna bands are likely to be placed underneath the strip. Reports coming out of China have suggested Xiaomi could launch two variants of the Mi 5 – one with a glass back while the other with a metal back. There are, however, way too many deviations in the latest photo, which raises doubts about its legitimacy.
Xiaomi Mi 5 specifications and features: From what we know so far, the Mi 5 could feature a 5.2-inch QHD display, Snapdragon 820 chipset, 4GB of RAM, and 32GB and 64GB internal storage options.
It is also expected to feature a 16-megapixel rear camera, 13-megapixel selfie camera, 3,600mAh battery with Qualcomm s Quick Charge 3.0 support, and connectivity options like 4G LTE support, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and NFC chip. On the software front, Mi 5 could run on Android 6.0 Marshmallow based MIUI 7.
Xiaomi has hinted that the Mi 5 will be launched after China s Spring Festival, and recent reports claim that it is set to host a pre-MWC event on February 20 ahead of the likes of Samsung and LG.
