The upcoming Xiaomi Mi 5, which is expected to be released on Sept. 24, is said to feature a curved glass rear, similar to that of the Samsung Galaxy Note 5.
Based on the leaked photo, the Xiaomi Mi 5 has a slightly curved back panel towards the sides -- a design that is very much similar to the recently released Samsung phablet. In addition to the glassy back, the handset will apparently feature a metal frame encircling the sides. A data port, along with placeholders for two loudspeakers, can also be seen at the tail end of the smartphone.
As the launch of the device has been delayed repeatedly, rumors have it that Xiaomi could be waiting for the new Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor for its flagship Mi 5. However, as Qualcomm is yet to launch the new chipset, there is a good chance that the Sept. 24 release date might not pan out as expected, Phone Arena reported, adding that the Xiaomi Mi 5 smartphone might come powered by last year’s Snapdragon 810 chipset.
Moving on to other Xiaomi Mi 5 specifications, the handset will reportedly flaunt a 5.2-inch display, bundled with a Quad HD screen resolution. The under the hood configurations will apparently be backed by a good 3 GB of RAM.
Moreover, earlier reports pointed to a possible fingerprint scanner on the Xiaomi Mi 5. It’s not surprising because many OEMs are now featuring the fingerprint scanner as a standard option in high-end devices.
When it comes to camera capacity, the Xiaomi Mi 5 is expected to sport a 16-megapixel rear-facing sensor. However, there is no information available to confirm the secondary shooter configuration.
