Is this the black version of the Xiaomi Mi5?
Earlier today, we told you that Xiaomi president Lei Jun had confirmed that his company would be introducing its new flagship phone at CES next month. There is speculation that the new model will be called either the Xiaomi Mi5 or the Xiaomi Mi4s. A photo published on Monday reveals what is alleged to be a black version of the Xiaomi Mi5.

The screen in the picture is said to be in the range of 5.5-inches to 5.7-inches. That would make it much larger than the 5-inch glass on the Xiaomi Mi4, which the phone in the photo resembles otherwise. A photo of the Xiaomi Mi5 in white had earlier been leaked, revealing the front-facing camera, the light sensor, razor thin side bezels and the Mi logo that we can't see on the leaked image of the black model.

The Xiaomi Mi5 is expected to feature the aforementioned 5.5-inch to 5.7-inch glass with resolution of 1440 x 2560. A 64-bit Snapdragon 810 CPU will be under the hood with 3GB of RAM on board. A 20.7MP rear snapper is rumored to be adorning the back of the phone. And there could be a limited edition model with a sapphire screen. Earlier reports suggested that Xiaomi will produce 50,000 units of this limited model.

Next week, CES will open and we could learn all about the next flagship model coming from one of mobile's hottest names at the moment. In the meantime you can view a pair of leaked Xiaomi Mi5 photos by clicking on the slideshow below.


Thanks for the tip!

Looks like a 4.5" to me and rendered. Camera is more to the side than to the center in the second picture. Both fake?

Mark my words, all these pictures are fake Photoshop of Mi4, and real Mi5 will be totally different from all these. Its just a typical pre-release false hype done by Chinese companies.

If this is the new direction they are going after color me impressed. China phone fanboys (you know who you are) justifying copycats was starting to get real tiring at the PA comment section. It's time for these companies to truly compete.

OMG xiaomi copyed the black color from iphone 4 and they put the screen in the front like all iphone have! Apple should drag them to the courts since its a serius threat to them. ;)
