Xiaomi CEO shares camera samples of Mi 5s (or whatever it shall be called)
The upcoming release of the Xiaomi Mi 5s has turned into a bit of a guessing game, largely thanks to a company official suggesting on Weibo that there would be no Mi 5s. While some rumors indicate that Xiaomi may instead go with the Mi Note S moniker, the Mi 5s rumors keep coming through, and Xiaomi CEO Lei Jun has posted a photo on social media purportedly taken with that very handset.
The EXIF date of the photo above suggests the upcoming handset was used to capture that particular sunset. With a resolution of 3264 x 2448 -- you can see the full-res shot by clicking the image above -- it has been taken on a 13-megapixel+ camera with f/2.0 aperture, og 1/750 sec shutter speed and ISO 100.

Whatever the case, we're expecting the Xiaomi Mi 5s / Mi Note S to appear in an official sense on September 27th. The entry-level model -- such as it is -- will likely pack the Snapdragon 821, 6 GB of RAM and 64 GB of native storage for the equivalent of $300. There will probably be several other configurations on offer as well.
