Xiaomi is quite embarrassed in USA in the recent days, because Blue Spike sues Xiaomi due to patents. What makes Xiaomi more embarrassed is Blue Spike sues Xiaomi for Xiaomi Mi4, Xiaomi Mi5 & Xiaomi Mi5 Plus. Guess what? Xiaomi hasn’t launched Xiaomi Mi5 nor Xiaomi Mi5 Plus yet. So, we can guess how embarrassed Xiaomi is. Xiaomi Mi 5 and Xiaomi Mi5 Plus leaks as Blue Spike sues Xiaomi.
In addition, there is a photo that is suspicious to be Xiaomi Mi5, showing up on PhoneArena website.
The photo shows Xiaomi Mi5 looks super gorgeous, and uses short gap design (meaning small gap between screen and the edge), imprints Xiaomi logo. And Xiaomi Mi5 is used to control the bulb. This matches Xiaomi’s home style.
Back on the press conference of Xiaomi Redmi Note 3, Lei Jun said in the interview,”he is using Xiaomi Mi5 already, it feels super good and is amazing.”
It is guessed that Xiaomi Mi5 will use a force technology like Synaptics ClearForce of 3D Touch on iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus. Xiaomi Mi5 probably will power Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 CPU, have 4GB Ram, feature 5.2 inches display screen, build in 3000mAh battery, own 8MP front camera and 21MP rear camera.
It is estimated Xiaomi Mi5 will be launched in January of 2016. Xiaomi Mi5 Plus may be a 5.5 inches smartphone, but it is unclear if it will be launched as Xiaomi Mi5 at the same time.
