Latest leaked image of the Xiaomi Mi 5 surfaces with home button and thin bezels?
While there is a resemblance to the previous leaked render, the picture did not come from an official source, meaning that we should take this with a grain of salt. Having said that, the home button is an important clue because it would seem to confirm some information that was passed along with the previous render. While earlier rumors suggested that the Mi 5 would be equipped with Qualcomm's ultrasound fingerprint scanner, analyst Pan Jiutang has recently stated that Xiaomi will use a more traditional biometric scanner on the Mi 5, which could be embedded in the home button.
The bottom of the phone carries two stereo speaker grilles with a USB port (Type-C?) between them. And MIUI is running on the phone. The timeline we last heard had the Xiaomi Mi 5 becoming officially announced on January 21st, with the launch coming during the next month.
