Check out this video of the Xiaomi Mi 5 in action
Earlier this morning, we showed you what appears to be genuine press renders of the Xiaomi Mi 5 dressed in Black, White, Pink and Gold. The images happened to match the previous leak of the Mi 5 that we passed along to you. This morning, a Weibo poster shared a video of what is claimed to be the White version of the Mi 5.

Placed in a nice looking wooden dock, we get to see the flagship phone in action, including the browser. The latter is tested by opening what appears to be a Weibo page.

We will run through the specs again. The Xiaomi Mi 5 is expected to feature a 5.2-inch screen, carrying either a 1440 x 2560 QHD, or 1080 x 1920 FHD resolution. Under the hood is the Snapdragon 820 chipset, containing a quad-core CPU and the Adreno 530 GPU. 4GB of RAM is inside, along with 16GB/64GB of expandable storage. The rear-facing camera weighs in at 16MP and the front-facing selfie snapper is 8MP. A 3030mAh battery keeps the lights on, and a fingerprint scanner is embedded in the home button. The Xiaomi Mi 5 is expected to be priced at 1999 Chinese Yuan, which is roughly $309 USD at today's exchange rates.

Thanks for the tip!

One ugly smartphone. Xiaomi f**ked it up with those Samsung like buttons. Capacitive buttons are far better.

It's a knockoff of iOS.

So, is this the real look of Xiaomi Mi 5 ? It's a video....there is no way it's fake, right ? If it is.....I'M SOLD. Does the video release mean it will launch very soon , perhaps Jan 2016 ?

When the person tried to scroll up, it lagged for a fraction of second. don't expect that from Snap 820.

It's probably not due to the 820. It's more likely because of their heavy iOS rip-off skin on Android.

miui is heavy but very responsive if the phone has the specs. It's probably unfinished software or this is faked

I notice that too. Actually when he swiped left to show the next screen, it is not as smooth and fluid as my old there is a tiny lag to redraw the screen. I don't know if it's just my feeling or what. Or perhaps it's just a pre-production sample which still needs some polishing

Hold up. Why in the living heck fingerprint scanner is so microscopic in size. I'm just confused - won't the size affect the accuracy/performance of the scanner? Not that I know, asking out of curiosity. To be honest, that ridicously tiny button looks retarded. But overall, for the price, I shouldn't be judging it so harshly. It's a goddamn 300 dollar phone with top-notch specs, that is, "on-paper''. Pretty awesome. Impatiently waiting for a review. *ahem* not from PA though, lol

Well, duh. I can barely afford new clothes, let alone a high end device like Z5 lol.

Xiaomi should've delayed the release further so they could get Qualcomms Ultrasonic scanner working properly, instead of that hideous scanner they got now.

don't worry you will find them on the next iteration....

It's a fake. Clickbait. Photoshopped Mi Note. Don't click any links.

I was looking at the Mi4c and now this. They seem like such a great value for the hardware, what's the catch? Near-stock Android would be the only other thing I would ask for.
