Leaks around the upcoming Xiaomi Mi 5 and Mi 5 Plus just don't seem to end. Now, a new image has surfaced on Weibo revealing the complete specs for the Mi 5 and Mi 5 Plus.

The Xiaomi Mi 5 is said to feature a 5.2-inch display, Gorilla Glass 4 protection and 2.5D edges. It will be powered by a Snapdragon 810 chipset, but there is no word on the RAM yet.

The Mi 5 is expected to run Android 5.1-based user interface, 16MP rear snapper and a 13MP front-facing camera. A 3000mAh battery is likely to fuel the device.

Xiaomi seems to follow the latest fad of launching two flagship variants. The Mi 5 is likely to be accompanied by the Mi 5 Plus. It will sport a 5.7-inch QHD display and come powered by the latest Snapdragon 820.

On the camera front, one can expect a 23MP rear camera with OIS and laser autofocus, and a 12MP front-facing camera. users can also expect an all-metal finish, but it is still unclear if the Mi 5 will also sport the same finish. It will be fuelled by a 3500mAh battery.

The specs seem to be in line with what we've been hearing.

Last month, a Gizmochina report revealed some details of the Mi 5 and the larger variant Mi 5 Plus. The Mi 5 specs sheet revealed 5.2-inch display, Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 processor, 3GB or 4GB of RAM, 16MP snapper and a 3000mAh battery.

The larger variant, the Xiaomi Mi 5 Plus, is expected to sport a 6-inch 2K display and a nearly bezel-less display. There was no mention of the processor then, but 4GB of RAM, 32GB onboard storage and 16-megapixel rear camera were expected as some of the other specs.

The company is also known to be working on Lollipop-based MIUI 7 user interface along with Android Open Kang Project (popularly known as AOKP) for the upcoming Mi 5. In a blog post, AOKP had revealed that team Kang members are working with Xiaomi for a new refreshed MIUI 7 that will be based on Lollipop 5.1 and come equipped in the Mi 5. For those not in the know how, AOKP builds custom Android ROMs for devices, just like Cyanogen.
