New Xiaomi Mi 5s Leaks: Live Photo & Teaser of Ceramic Black Edition

by Habeeb Onawole 2

It’s a few days to the official launch of the Xiaomi Mi 5s and more details are emerging. A new poster released today hints at the launch of a ceramic black edition of the Xiaomi Mi 5S.


Xiaomi is not new to making ceramic editions of their flagship. The Mi 5 released early this year features a gorilla glass back by default, but later the company announced a ceramic version for the Mi 5 Pro which also comes with more RAM and storage than the original Mi 5.



Does this mean that the ceramic black edition of the Mi 5s might be called the Mi 5s Pro and possibly be the version with 6GB of RAM and 256GB of storage? We’ll have to wait till the 27th to find out.

The text on the poster loosely translates to ”What else apart from ceramic black?”. This also teases the possibility of other colours/versions other than ceramic black.

Another new leak that surfaced recently is a live image reported to be the white version of the Mi 5s. The image was posted by @KJuma. From the picture we can see that Xiaomi has indeed ditched the physical home button that houses the fingerprint scanner, confirming the use of Qualcomm’s Ultrasonic Fingerprint Scanner which is embedded under the glass. And that circular button that resembles that of the iPhone shown in an earlier leak? That is also absent. In its place, we have a glowing dot flanked on both sides by extra dots. Let’s hope it remains this way.
