Alleged Xiaomi Mi 5 GFXBench listing and glass back panel spotted online

Xiaomi’s own Wanqiang Li and Hugo Barra have both already confirmed that the MI 5 flagship is on its way, most likely scheduled for February 24 and it is definitely shaping up as an exciting offer.

We have already seen the phone depicted in renders and even a couple of live shots, but we are yet to catch a glimpse of its glass back, until today, that is. A new photo claims to depict the panel and a few things instantly stand out. For one, the material has a pattern, which rumors failed to reveal. Also, the part is Gold in color, which makes us wonder if other variants will be available as well to go better with the Black, Pink and White, cited for the Mi 5. We can’t also fail to mention that the leaked panel is obviously flat, which doesn’t fit well with the current info that the back will be curved. Still, the two things aren’t necessarily incompatible. The back panel of the Samsung Galaxy Note5 is relatively flat as well when detached from the frame.
