The Xiaomi Mi 5 has been extensively leaked over the past few months, but it’s been quite difficult to pin down anything definite about the phone due to conflicting reports. A fresh leak could be the end to that confusion since it appears to be from an official presentation about the handset.
The images give the impression of being sourced from the Chinese launch event of the Xiaomi Mi 5. Based on the photos, there will be 2 versions of the flagship phone. One will carry 32GB of ROM and 3GB of RAM, while the other sports 64GB of ROM and 4GB of RAM. All other specs look to be the same between the two.
Interestingly, one of the slides shows off the Xiaomi device’s 26MP rear camera. This is quite a huge leap from previous hints at a 16MP primary snapper. The 26MP unit is set to be accompanied by an aperture of f/1.6, dual-LED flash and phase detection autofocus. These features seem to line up with the impressive samples which were released last week.
Other notable specs include the new Wi-Fi ad standard, NFC, USB 3.0 and USB Type-C connectivity. While the battery’s capacity has not been revealed, the photos mention 80% of the powerhouse can be charged within 34 minutes thanks to fast charging technology. The leak also confirms a 5.2-inch 1080p screen and a Snapdragon 820 processor.
According to Times News, there may also be a bigger Mi 5 Plus. However, the new images don’t verify its existence. Speculation so far has suggested that the smartphone will carry a 5.7-inch 2K screen, Snapdragon 820 SoC, 32GB of internal storage, 4GB of RAM, a 16MP main lens, and an 8MP front-facing shooter.
Stay tuned for more on the Xiaomi Mi 5 till its official launch on February 24.
