Alleged Xiaomi Mi 5 design leaks out, side bezels begone
posted by Daniel P. / Nov 14, 2014, 2:35 AM
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.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,

Looks strikingly similar to HTC One (M7). The designs of both Mi 4 and Mi 5 are appealing to me unlike Mi 3.

Missing the front facing speakers More like the BlackBerry Z10 or Oppo Find 3, which were also released before the M7

Except the 6 mm side bezels on the M7 (got a M7, this pisses me off a lot)... I keep for the audio output and awesome build, M8 too fat, need a 5,2 in the body of the M7.

This specific one is more like a HTC M series copy. I havent seen a single phone from Xiaomi with their own unique design.

I guess with company like xiaomi, it doesn't need to care much about sticking to a design parameters, therfore can do whatever they like, no bezel on the sides, qHD screen and what not...there bound to be a lot of consumer who like to have a cheaper phone with great specs.

All design languages were pretty much used by current phone manufacturers so it is not surprising that another phone will have a resemblance with any of the existing ones. With the number of phones available today, any design that Xiaomi will come up to will just look similar to any of the phones today. I don't want a phone which sacrifices comfort just to look original. (maybe triangle-shaped? thick bezel? camera under? power button in front?)

All Android devices are the same now. No bezels and huge screen. 3 year old Qualcomm trash powering them sluggishly. Lollipop is locked down and GApps are closed source. Android is toast. Opens Source has been tamed and Android has been monetized fully by Google. Next OS please.

Well people here are quite annoyed with Xiaomi without even using it!! I hv been using mi3 since last 3 months and i am quite sure, it is not a copy of Samsung/apple/htc etc etc!! If it would have been a copy, it could have hanged bt it didn't! I am satisfied ( happy) with its performance, display, build, camera, sound, touch, call quality, NOISE CANCELLATION, UI, regular updates, In built security features, heavy customisation, Themes and wallpapers update... and other countless features! I AM SURE, I"LL BE BUYING MI4, MI5, MI6 as soon as it comes and not only me but other Xiaomi users will also do the same! Very rare samsung/htc/sony user says this bt I AM SURE ABOUT WHAT I SAID!! so please, if ur company is not giving u everything u want, stop criticising OTHER BRANDS!! XIAOMI IS GIVING ME EVERYTHING AND I AM SURE, ITS NOT A COPY!!!
