Only recently we published a blog about a rumor that Xiaomi, the Chinese tech giant will be launching a new Flagship phone, Mi 5, which is supposed to be a game changer. The rumours suggested that Mi 5 will be equipped with finger print technology. Adding spark to the news, new rumors are coming flying in, which suggest that the phone will be launched later this year in July. The news of the same first surfaced on the internet via Weibo, which is the Chinese equivalent of Twitter.
What is more interesting and surprising is the news that along with the launch of Xiomi Mi 5, the company will be revealing yet another phone, which is supposedly a bigger variant of the Mi 5. The rumors also claim that the new phone will be called as Xiaomi Mi 5 Plus and it will be launched in July alongside Mi 5.
Gizmochina also leaked news through Weibo about the specifications of both the models, Mi 5 and Mi 5 Plus. If the leaks are to be believed, the Mi 5 will feature a 5.2 inch display, Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 processor, 16 megapixel primary (rear) camera, 3,000 mAh battery and 4GB RAM. Another interesting thing about the recent new leak is that it contradicts the previous rumors claiming that the Mi 5 will not feature any fingerprint scanning technology. Also, preliminary leaks suggest that the Mi 5 will have a QHD screen with 1440 x 2560 pixel resolution.
On the other hand, the Xiaomi Mi 5 Plus, if the rumors are to be believed will feature a 6 inch screen with 2K display. On the design front, the phone will have a bezel less display. As far as hardware and other specifications are concerned, the leaks suggest that Mi 5 Plus will have 4 GB RAM, 16 MP rear camera, and 32 GB built-in storage space. Some of the other expected specifications that were revealed in the previous leaks were that the Mi 5 will come in two variations based on their storage capacity; a 16 GB and 64 GB model.
While all these rumors have stirred a great deal of interest among the users around the world, especially on the social media platforms, we suggest that it would be wise not to take these leaks too seriously. The legitimacy of the news remains questionable as there is no official word yet from Xiaomi. Just as any other rumor, we suggest you take this with a pinch of salt and don’t hatch any plans to buy the phone until the news becomes a reality.
