Xiaomi Mi 5s and Mi 5s Plus leaks galore; image of phone, box and promotional poster are here
We told you to expect more leaks pertaining to the Xiaomi Mi 5s and Xiaomi Mi 5s Plus with the unveiling of both phones reportedly coming on September 27th. We have just taken a look at a multitude of new images and leaks including a promotional poster for the Mi 5s. The poster reveals that the phone will launch on September 29th through Chinese online retailer JD.com. Additionally, a shrink wrapped retail box for the Mi 5s Plus has surfaced.

Perhaps the most exciting leak to date is an image of the back of the Mi 5s in Black. The photo reveals the dual-camera set up that we told you about yesterday, along with the tapered back design used on the Xiaomi Mi 5.

The Xiaomi Mi 5s is expected to be priced at the equivalent of $300 USD with a $450 USD cost for the Xiaomi Mi 5s Plus. Besides the rear facing dual-camera setup, Xiaomi has teased the Snapdragon Sense ID ultrasonic fingerprint scanner that will be embedded under the hood of both phones, and we've seen screenshots showing that Force Touch will be employed on the new models.

Check out the new images by clicking on the slideshow below.

In Spain I can get an S7 with supreme screen and camera for that kind of chips, this guy's should never cross the 300$ barrier.

I try to be lenient with these Chinese companies and their design cues but this is too closely related to the iPhone 7. Even the boxing of the device.

It's probably going to have a great English ROM like all other Xiaomi phones. But hey, keep spouting your lies, maybe someone will listen.

Lol... They aren't even hiding it anymore. Yet people bash the Iphone's design? Apple are really trail blazers tbh anything they do, everyone wants to copy. Iphones have the most iconic designs tbh and this is even without any fancy physical features.. Infact the iphone 6 series are probably the most copied designs of all time even after envious bashing by rival fan boys

Quote: "Infact the iphone 6 series are probably the most copied designes of all time" Really? The iPhone 6's design was copied off the HTC M7/M8.

Lol no. The iphone only used the htc antenna bands design pattern. Otherwise the iphone and htc look completely different to each other, I mean, have you even seeing both of them even? Lol, Or you're so filled with apple hate? One is curved, the other is flat. One is fat, the other is thin. One has no home button, the other has one. One has dual ff speakers, the other has one. One has a centered camera, the other has a side mounted camera. So what's the similarity here Mr trojan? Except they're both metal (that the iphone had 2 years before) and have almost thesame antenna bands? (Not thesame actually) Btw have you ever seeing any chinese oem copying the htc m7/8 design? Even once? Well, No! But you see almost all chinese oems copying exact iphone designs to the latter, to the point that even the htc A9 had to make a copy for themselves. You see, don't always allow hate consume you.

Thank God it's going for sale on JD.com. Their usual lottery of releasing a few thousand on their website just didn't work. You could never grab one, and all the ones that were taken ended up on taobao.com with an insane mark-up for the next 6 months. My money is ready on Sep 29th. :))
