Next week, Xiaomi will officially unveil the much anticipated Xiaomi Mi 5 flagship. Given the immense fan following of the company, it’s no surprise that there are multiple rumors and leaks about the device every single day.And today is no exception, as a couple of live images of the Xiaomi Mi 5 in action were leaked. We have already seen some of the renders of the device, but this will be the first time that we are seeing pictures of the device all booted up.
The device in the leaked image has a very striking resemblance to the one showed off in the earlier renders. Hence, it’s quite likely that the phone in today’s leaked images is the real deal. Like the one in the renders, even this phone comes with an oblong home button, which most probably harbors a fingerprint sensor.
In the first image, we can see that the phone is running on MIUI OS, and thanks to the dark wallpaper, we don’t notice any bezels. It looks like the company has done a good job with the design. However, in the second image, which shows off some of the specs of the phone in a white background, we can see some bezels on all the four corners of the device. They look pretty thin, and I am sure these borders won’t stand out as much in the black colored model.
We still don’t have a real life image of the back panel, but from the renders, the camera should be located on the top left corner. The second image also reveals some of the specs of the Xiaomi Mi 5, like 3GB RAM, and 64GB storage. The phone was running on MIUI 7 developer edition based on Android 6.0 Marshmallow OS.
From the specs point of view, the Xiaomi Mi 5 leaked today is probably the low-end variant. There should be at least another variant with 4GB of RAM. And if rumors are to be believed, then there’s the possibility of a 6GB RAM variant as well.
But for now, this seems to be our first glimpse of the Mi 5 in action. Let’s hope there are more images coming our way in the next few days.
UPDATE: Thanks to one of our reader @Der_Tweet_Baer on twitter, we now have another image of the Mi 5 with a silicon case. Check that out from down below.
