Alleged Xiaomi Mi 5 design leaks out, side bezels begone
Just three years after its first phone, Xiaomi is now the third most profitable handset maker, after Apple and Samsung, and the fourth-largest, that's why when it starts prepping a new flagship, we are all ears. Building on the success of the Mi 4, the company is on the verge of releasing its successor, the Mi 5, and the alleged design just leaked out.
Done in the trendy bezel-less side style, the Xiaomi Mi 5 looks like a very thin and comparatively elongated handset, which bodes well for its one-handed operation. As for the rest of the specs, the only rumors circulating right now are for a Quad HD panel, Snapdragon 805 chipset and 3 GB of RAM, but, given that the Mi 5 will likely be announced next year, these could already be expected. In any case, it is shaping up to be a blockbuster handset again, especially if Xiaomi outs it around cost again, and earn margins after the component prices start going down, as is habitual for the company already.
