Alleged render shows physical home button on Xiaomi Mi 5

An new alleged render of Xiaomi’s upcoming Mi 5 flagship smartphone has leaked online, revealing the front of the device. The leak reveals that the handset will feature a physical home button, making it the first Xiaomi device to offer such a design.

While we can’t confirm the authenticity of the leak at this moment, having a physical home button actually makes sense given that some recent reports are pointing towards a front fingerprint scanner on the smartphone.

The Mi 5 is expected to be made official in 2016, with reports suggesting a January 21 unveiling and a February release. A Plus variant of the device is also expected to be announced at the same time.
