With the Xiaomi Mi5 expected to be launching very soon, we’re learning something new about the device almost every day. And according to a new leak, the smartphone will feature a very slim form factor.
So how slim will it be? Well, if this blurry leaked document is anything to go by, the metal chassis of the upcoming Xiaomi flagship could be a measly 5.1mm thick. And when a battery, camera sensor and other hardware components are added, the thickness could maybe increase up to 6mm, which is still pretty slim by modern standards.
With manufacturers rallying for the thinnest smartphone crown, it was only a matter of time before Xiaomi jumped on board as well. The Mi5 is expected to break cover in a week or two from now sporting a 5.2 or 5.5 inch QHD display, a Snapdragon 805 SoC, a 16-megapixel camera, 3GB of RAM, 32GB of storage and probably with Android 5.0 Lollipop.
