Xiaomi Mi5 maybe coming soon? It took less than a year for the Xiaomi, which could probably be the world’s hottest handset maker at the moment, to follow-up on the best-selling Mi3 with the very iPhone-like Xiaomi Mi4.
Both flagships have been noted as in-demand and the Mi3 has sold millions since its availability.
And the “Apple of China” seems like its far from over in unveiling new handsets.
Alleged leak photos that have surfaced reveal that Xiaomi may already be designing and engineering a handset with extremely thin bezels.
Could it be a sign of a very skinny Xiaomi flagship, which could well be dubbed as Xiaomi Mi5? Referring to the leaked photos, GSM Arena noted that, “The bezels are extremely thin, but we can’t really tell how thick is the phone itself.
Unfortunately, there are no suggested specifications available at this point either.” The phone, which claims to come from the manufacturing line, reveal huge screens.
Business Insider said that it has a “slim and premium look.” “It appears to be significantly bigger than the Mi4, which received positive reviews from critics upon launch,” the news site added.
The three-year old Xiaomi corporation began selling in China but have been receiving a lot of buzz because of its fast-growth.
It has since expanded to other countries outside of its key markets and has hired former Google executive Hugo Barra to lead the company’s international expansion.
Xiaomi is now the no.
1 smartphone maker in China and is reportedly the third largest smartphone manufacturer in the world in terms of global shipments.
According to Ryan Mac from Forbes , the company is looking into raising new money that may give it a valuation of $40 billion.
If it succeeds in raising its new capital, the company could become the world’s most valuable private tech firm.
