Thanks to the numerous leaks and teasers, we know a lot about the upcoming Xiaomi flagship, the Xiaomi Mi 5. Now the latest leak gives us a look at the phone’s retail box. This is different than what we saw a couple of days back, which showed off the Mi 5 in a traditional recycled brown box. Given that the company has stopped using the brown box in its recent releases, it’s possible that the box leaked today is the real one.
While a box simply doesn’t tell much about the specs of device, what it does reveal is that the design will be like the renders that we have seen recently with a physical home button up front. Also, it shows us that there will be at least four different colors available for the device, including golden and pink apart from the usual black and white shades. This once again confirms the shades that we saw in the renders that were leaked a few days back.
While there are some specs of the Mi 5 that are yet to be confirmed, what we know for sure is that the phone will feature the powerful Snapdragon 820 quad-core chipset with support for dual SIM dual standby and NFC. Other features that are yet to be confirmed are its 5-inch QHD display, 3GB + 32GB and 4GB + 64GB memory options, 16MP rear camera with PDAF and Laser Autofocus, 8MP front-facing camera, front placed fingerprint sensor and a large 3600mAh battery.
Since the company is confirmed to be present at MWC 2016 in Barcelona, Spain, this year, we may see the smartphone launch in several new countries. However, for now, we cannot say much about the phone’s availability, so we better wait for some official details.
Also, we will be present at MWC 2016 to bring you live action from all the greatest launches in the tech world. So, stay tuned! [source]
