Xiaomi Mi 5 Package Leaks Showing Colors

We know a bit about the Xiaomi Mi 5 smartphone already. The Mi 5 will be the new flagship device from Xiaomi and it was confirmed to be launching February 24 by a former Google exec Hugo Barra. With that confirmation also came more leaked photos and today even more photos have leaked.

The leaked images this time out show the packaging of the Mi 5 smartphone. Seeing a box isn't that exciting, but the box does show that there will be multiple colors offered for the device. Shown on the box are pink, gold, white, and black options.

What we know about hardware inside the smartphone from previous leaks includes a Snapdragon 820 processor and 3GB of RAM. The screen size is still a mystery, but it is thought to be a 5.2-nch 1080p unit. Rumors continue to suggest that it will sell for 3,000 RMB.

If that price is accurate, it would be nearly twice as expensive as the Mi 4 that it replaces. Other rumors suggest the smartphone will have laser assisted auto focus. An IR blaster is also tipped that would allow the smartphone to be used as a remote control for TVs and other devices.
