The Xiaomi Mi 5 is bound to become official in a couple of weeks, and as befitting a Xiaomi flagship (or any flagship, for that matter) it has been the star of numerous leaks. The company's president posted a shot captured with the Mi 5's camera a few days ago and now VP Hugo Barra has taken it to Facebook to share a sample of his own.
The single shot of what looks like a Cycas Revoluta (we know our plants, also have access to the internet) presents plenty of detail even in its undoubtedly altered for social media state. Colors are nice, and the Mi 5 has done well with exposing the scene.
Naturally, Facebook posts aren't the best place to evaluate a camera, but they do the job to give us a hint at what to expect from Xiaomi's future smartphone. And is that the Mi 5 itself in the bottom right corner casting its shadow?
This mobile will be killer flagship mobile in 2016#.good luck XIAOMI
Xiaomi killed it this year with camera.
Does HDR mean you don't get the full size image? This image is just about 15 MP, not 26MP. And of course this shot is taken in direct sunlight. Show me what it looks like at night, like maybe a full moon.
