Alleged picture of Mi5 Plus leaked on eve of Xiaomi's event
Xiaomi will launch a new flagship device tomorrow (January 15), and while the company has been sending out teasers about the device’s thinness, there are very few solid facts about what will be unveiled. Now, just one day before the launch @leaksfly, a Twitter user, has posted an alleged picture of a device called the Xiaomi Mi5 Plus. The striking thing about the depicted Mi5 Plus is its razor thin bezels. They do look almost too good to be true. What do you think? Fake or real?
As a recap this is what we know for certain, Xiaomi is holding a flagship product launch on the 15th. And that is it! In terms of rumors and assumptions, we know that the thinness of the device will be a key feature, and it will likely be called the Mi5. There has also been some leaked images of the devices uni-body construction, which is said to just 5.1mm thick.
Other rumors are that the device will have a Quad HD display (1440 x 2560) and will use a top of the line Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, either an 805 or an 810. Since the Mi 4 had 3GB of RAM, a 3000+ mAh battery and a 13MP camera, we can expect that the Mi 5 will offer at least those specs, but probably more.
Xiaomi has also hinted that it will actually be unveiling two devices tomorrow, some pundits are suggesting that these will be the Redmi Note 2 and the Mi5. However, there have been times when the rumors were that the Mi5 would feature a 5.2 inch display, and at other times it was a 5.7 inch display. If you combine these with the idea of a Mi5 Plus, then it could be that the two devices that Xiaomi will announce are in fact the Mi5 and the Mi5 Plus. One with a 5.2 inch display and one with a 5.7 inch display.
So stay tuned to find out what Xiaomi has planned for us tomorrow! In the meantime, What would you like to see from the Mi5?
