Live image of the Xiaomi Mi 5s appears
The Xiaomi Mi 5s is a more power packed version of the manufacturer's Mi 5 flagship phone. Just the other day, the device was listed on AnTuTu's verified Weibo site. The latter, combined with previous speculation, revealed that the handset will be powered by the Snapdragon 821 chipset. Along for the ride is a quad-core 2.15GHz CPU, and the Adreno 530 GPU. A 5.15-inch screen (with Force Touch) will feature 1080 x 1920 (FHD) resolution. Two or three variants are expected. One will come with 3GB of LPDDR4 RAM and 64GB of native storage. The other offers 4GB of LPDDR4 RAM and 128GB of internal memory. There has been some talk about a model equipped with 6GB of RAM and 256GB of storage.

The rear camera on the phone is said to be a 16MP snapper with a 4-axis OIS, PDAF for quick focusing, and an aperture of f/1.8. An 8MP front-facing camera handles selfies and video chats. Powering the device is a 3490mAh battery with Quick Charge 3.0, and Android 6.0.1 is pre-installed.

On Wednesday, a live image of the Xiaomi Mi 5s surfaced on Weibo. Of course, in a situation like this we need to take the image with a grain of salt. One possible red flag is the round home button, which is oblong on the Mi 5.

Hey, it still may not look like this. The only things I really want from this over the Mi 5 (as the original looks better so far) are the F1.8 aperture, the bigger battery, and the (hopefully) more efficient 821 so I can underclock it to the 820 speeds for better battery. If it does look like this and the price isn't right, I'll just scoop up a black ceramic Mi 5 for cheaper. PA also got some of the specs wrong...4MP "ultrapixel" up front, and the SD821 is 2.4GHz/2.0Ghz, not 2.15GHz

Assuming it's not fake that might be long awaited ultrasonic fingerprint scanner under glass.

Now this looks much better than the original MI5 which has a ugly home button.
