Xiaomi Mi 5 leaks out: amazingly thin 5.1mm flagship to be unveiled in a week
The leaked Xiaomi Mi 5 body measures a mind-boggling 5.1mm (0.2”) thick, a lot thinner than the already slim, 6.9mm iPhone 6. In fact, the Mi 5 will be out there with the world’s slimmest phone.
The big question is whether the Xiaomi Mi 5 will run on the Snapdragon 805 or Snapdragon 810. As much as we like to think that Xiaomi will surprise us with a Snapdragon 810 system chip, sanity tells us that if the company wants to achieve those low prices it’s known for, the Snapdragon 805 seems like the more likely choice.
Camera-wise, rumors point to a 20- or 16-megapixel main shooter and an 8-megapixel selfie cam.
Finally, along with all the leaked images of the phone’s chassis, you’d also find a silicone case, allegedly made with the Xiaomi Mi 5 in mind.
