The President of the company Lin Bin uncovered information about the smartphone, which gave us an idea about how powerful the camera of the smartphone would be.

Bin posted two sample camera shots of a beach on his Weibo account. The first image, which might have faced compression during the process of uploading to the social network, shows the beach and other elements in the background in detail. The camera appears to have impressive autofocus and shutter speeds, with the sample's subject a flying bird. The second image shows the same subject and the scene slightly zoomed in.


Recalling from the abundant leaks and rumours from before, the Xiaomi Mi 5 is tipped to include a 16-megapixel rear camera with Optical Image Stabilisation and a 13-megapixel front-facing camera.

Some of the other rumoured specifications are a 5.2-inch display with either full-HD or QHD resolution and 3600mAh battery with Quick Charge 3.0 tech. The handset is said to come in two memory and storage versions - 3GB of RAM with 32GB inbuilt storage, and 4GB of RAM with 64GB storage.

The Mi 5 has been leaked in several images showing the handset featuring a 2.5D curved glass display and 3D glass covering the back panel. The slim oval-shaped home button was also seen in the new press renders and has been said to double up as the fingerprint sensor, which is claimed to be the smallest and faster sensor in the market.
