Xiaomi Mi5 Plus image leaked on eve of Xiaomi's new product announcement
A tweet sent out by a tipster who goes by the Twitter handle of @leaksfly, allegedly reveals a leaked photograph of what is being called the Xiaomi Mi5 Plus. With Xiaomi's president announcing that the company's next flagship model would be introduced on January 15th, we have been treated to leaks allegedly showing images of the Xiaomi Mi4S, Xiaomi Mi5 and the Xiaomi Redmi Note 2. All three have been tipped as being named the next flagship phone from the fast growing manufacturer.

The new leaked photo tweeted by @leaksfly shows a device with razor thin side bezels. And while we have to take all of these rumors with a grain of salt (industrial strength, please), this is the fourth possible Xiaomi model to be rumored as being worthy of the flagship title.

Teasers from Xiaomi have hinted that more than one device will be introduced on Thursday. Most are expecting the two to be the Xiaomi Mi5 and the Xiaomi Redmi Note 2. But if the Xiaomi Mi5 Plus is legit, where would that phone fit in?

Thanks for the tip!

Why do you think it's a copy of an apple device?? it's not even a look-a-like... and don't say some stupid s**t like..."it's the same color" or "It's thin as an iphone" because that's just stupid to say that

It does look like iPhone 5S...the same color, iOS-like UI, both of them are thin just like what you said, and the metal frames on Mi4 (or maybe Mi4S or Mi5 as well) exactly looks like a enlarged model of iPhone's metal frame. Don't you still think Xiaomi copied apple? lol, dude, get real.

The leaked picture only showed the upper part of the phone, and how do you know it looks like the iPhone 5S? And who dafuq cares about same color? Also, if you ever have a chance to try a Mi 4, the Mi 4 looks nothing like an iPhone. Stop whining, and bend over it already!

shameless copy or whatever Apple called them, xiaomi do it better (look how slim the bezel). As a consumer i'm more than happy to get more option for my next phone since i'm not satisfied with my m8 camera.

THE design is so neutral that this conversation becomes pointless (though earpiece is samy-like)

It's pathetic to think that a phone copy another phone because it's the same color... Really you think xioami copy Apple because is thin? Then Sony should sue Apple because the Xperia Arc was the thinnest phone in 2011... Apple wasn't the first phone to use metal for there phones stupid. You need to get out of that box you live in

Copying doesn't matter in this era. And they doesn't have to feel shame about it. Everyone copy each other. Even Apple. So lets just drop the word copy and use "borrowed" or "borrowed without permission".

I think they're somewhat copying the ethos, sure, but I find the products a lot more compelling, functional, high-end, and beautiful than those of Apple's. Also the pricing is good compared to paying 700€ for a mid-ranger.

MIUI 6 may look a bit inspired from iOS but its way advanced in functionality and feels much better too.. In my opinion MIUI is way ahead from iOS hence there is no comparison at all...

You seriously are the biggest moron Ive seen on this site. My God, they are copying Apple because this device is thin, is white and they use a metal frame? LOL. Apple didn't even come up with all of them first so you really dont have a point. Freaking fanboys everywhere..

Do you seriously think this is the only reason I call Xiaomi 'copy company'? Your comment is undoubtedly pathetic :(

Plus, the new Xiaomi phone looks ridiculously cheap compared to iPhone 6 Plus, or even iPhone 5S.

Original always wins.

Well, one might point out the protruding lense, those plastic stripes and the bending problem when talking about the iPhone...

HTC copied iPhone 5 and sold HTC One M7 as the original. Plus M7 and M8 share the same looks... So......You know what I mean.

Whoa...quit a jump from the iPhone 5 to the M7. What is copied there? Aluminium?

You are a f**kin idiot, it's not even close to the design of Apple product

Oh, so the word "plus" is considered as copying? How pathetic are you. Apple didn't invent the word "plus". You wanna file a lawsuit on Maths?

Xiaomi >>>>>>>> Apple

Try saying : Iphone and some X phone had a child. This sounds appreciated alot.
MIUI has so many innovative features that you can't imagine. Try it first.
Thanks.

Fake IMO. Let the Mi5 come first, wait for tomorrow and then we'll see Mi5 Plus.

Finally a Xiaomi phone that isn't a major ripoff. See, was it that hard? +respect

Might I suggest a new years resolution for Xiaomi next year? Like thinking of an original name that does not copy Apple conventions?
