An alleged live photo of Xiaomi Mi 5s, which is believed to be the successor to the Mi 5 has leaked online in China. A China based person, identified as Kjuma, has shared the image of Xiaomi Mi 5s on Weibo.
In the photo, the device is seen with a circular home button at the bottom of display which is quite similar to iPhones. There are also two capacitive keys next to it. The circular button is expected to double up as a fingerprint scanner. Recently, reports claimed that the Xiaomi Mi 5S will have a Qualcomm’s Sense ID ultrasonic fingerprint technology. The Ultrasonic Fingerprint Sensor technology can be used to works through materials like glass, plastic, steel, and aluminium as they use ultrasonic sound to recognize fingerprints. The fingerprints will reportedly work even when your hands are wet.
In the pic, the Mi logo is clearly visible at the upper left corner of the device. Interestingly, earlier reports claimed that the upcoming Xiaomi device will not have physical home button.
Xiaomi Mi 5S was recently spotted on Antutu benchmarking website as well as on the website of CCC (China Compulsory Certificate).
As per earlier reports, the Xiaomi Mi 5S has a 5.15-inch full HD (1920Ã—1080 pixels) display, 6GB RAM and 256GB internal storage, 16 megapixel rear camera, and a 3,490 mAh battery.
