Xiaomi Mi5 gets listed online, outing new specs and pictures

The Mi5 won’t launch until next month, but Xiaomi’s flagship phone just popped up on one online retailer’s website. The long-rumored handset was briefly spotted at Chinese site GearBest, revealing a few new images and a full list of hardware.

According to AndroidHeadlines, which caught the leaked product page before it was removed, the Xiaomi Mi5 will offer flagship-level specs. That includes a 5.2-inch Quad HD display, a Snapdragon 820 processor, 4GB of RAM, a 16-megapixel rear camera, an 8-megapixel front-facing shooter and a 3600mAh battery.

It’s not all good news though. The Mi5 will apparently start at just 16GB of storage, presumably with a 64GB option as well. It may also run outdated Android 5.1 software, along with Xiaomi’s own MiUI 7 skin.

For the most part this lines up with previous leaks. These new images aren’t much of a surprise either, though the Mi5 looks great with a glass-and-metal design in gold, black or white. It’s also the first Xiaomi phone to sport a physical home button, which is where the company is expected to put its new fingerprint reader.

We’re still a little blurry when it comes to how much the Mi5 will cost. Conflicting reports suggest the company could stay as low as $320 off-contract or raise the price so it’s closer to $400. Either way it’s still a great deal considering what you’ll get in return.
