Xiaomi Mi5 to be unveiled at CES next month?
Just the other day, we told you some interesting gossip about Xiaomi's next flagship, rumored to be (drum roll, please) the Xiaomi Mi5. Hey, no one said that the company had earned its reputation for innovation because of its device naming capabilities. Back in November, a photo of the Mi5 was leaked, and the razor thin side bezels quickly caught the attention of everyone. A few days ago, the buzz around the water cooler was that Xiaomi would sell the Mi5 at the bargain price of $325 USD, off-contract.

According to mobile telecom analyst Sun Changxu, the Xiaomi Mi5 will be stuffed full of high-end specs. Sun expects the phone to feature a 5.7-inch screen with resolution of 1440 x 2560. He also expects it to be among the first smartphones powered by the 64-bit octa-core Snapdragon 810 CPU, with the Adreno 430 GPU crunching graphics. The analyst sees Xiaomi using the same 20.7MP Sony Exmor sensor for its rear-facing camera, that is employed on the Meizu MX4. And we can't forget the rumored fingerprint scanner.

And the cool part is that the phone just might see the light of day as soon as next month. The timing with Qualcomm's delivery of the Snapdragon 810 might be tight, but we could see the Xiaomi Mi5 unwrapped at CES 2015 in Las Vegas. If all of the rumors are true, from the razor thin side bezels, to the specs and pricing, Xiaomi might be coming to the U.S.with one sweet phone that might immediately capture the attention of smartphone buyers in the states.

Thanks for the tip!
