Update: Xiaomi reached out to us and explained that the slides are actually fake. Thus, while the below observatins might still bevalid, they are now merely speculations.
After analyzing yet another alleged specs leak merely hours ago, now we actually have the official slides of the launch event to source information.
We end up with a total of two models that will definitely be unveiled at the venue. Both will have a 5.2-inch Full HD display and a Snapdragon 820 SoC and will differ from one another in terms of memory: 3GB RAM plus 32GB of storage and 4GB of RAM plus 64GB of storage.
Other specs of the Xiaomi Mi 5 shown in the presentation include a USB Type-C plug with Quick Charge 3.0 feature, a 26MP shooter on the back, with a super bright F/1.6 lens and a Dual LED flash, from which we have already seen some impressive samples. Continuing down the leaked slides, we also find mentions of NFC, as well as the new Wi-Fi ad standard - a truly first in the smartphone world.
That about exhausts the list of almost certain facts. Other things we have come to expect from the Mi 5 include a 3,600 mAh non-removable battery, an 8MP front-facing camera, as well as a fingerprint reader in the home button.
