We first reported the existence of a Mi 5s Plus last week. We still don’t have any new details about the device but last night Xiaomi’s co-founder, Lin Bin, sort of confirmed the device does exist.

A post on his Weibo account at an event yesterday revealed that the device used to ¬†make the post is no other than the Xiaomi Mi 5s Plus. This is the first genuine proof of the phone’s existence.

Following last week’s first mention of the Mi 5s Plus, an image of what is presumed to be that of the phone was posted by a Xiaomi engineer, Zhu Dan. The phone has its camera and sensor positioned in the middle instead of the top left corner like we have it on the Mi 5. Mr. Dan has however deleted the post.
