Two Xiaomi handsets leak, one with duel rear cameras

Two Xiaomi handsets leak, one with duel rear cameras
Images of two different Xiaomi handsets have apparently been leaked, including one model with a pair of cameras on the back along with dual flash. There is speculation that the image is that of the Xiaomi Mi 5. For what it's worth, earlier this week we passed along rumored specs for the Mi 5 and they did not include two rear cameras. Nonetheless, the image could still be that of Xiaomi's next flagship model. It also could be a different phone altogether, or it could be a fake.

Another leaked Xiaomi device comes from China's Weibo site. There, a picture was discovered that allegedly reveals the back of the Xiaomi Redmi Note 2. Last month, another picture claimed to show the back of the same model. While the two images do look similar, the speaker grill that appears on today's leak is not seen in the older picture. Both snapshots do show a similar layout for the camera, flash and fingerprint scanner.

Time to grab two grains of salt here and take one for each image. The Xiaomi Mi 5 isn't expected until November and this is probably the fourth back cover for the Redmi Note 2 that we've seen. The first two appeared back in October and in December.

Thanks for the tips!

#1 Pic. There are minor scratches. What about durability? #2 one looks good.

There's a typo in the title. Its dual not 'duel'.

EXACTLY what I was thinking. Wouldn't have come up in auto spell check because duel is also a valid word, meaning fight (I think). Dual meanwhile, means two, which is what the intended meanning is here.

maybe the cameras fight each other every time you take a shot.

Fingerprint sensor needs to be on the front.

Both seems fake to me. First one looks good and fresh, second one seems like photoshopped MX5, badly. First one lacks of antenna rifts on metal(?) rim. Except HTC One, dual camera modules of Linximaging, Toshiba and Corephotonics came as one module. So flash shouldn't be between two camera. Both possible but not likely IMO.
