    According to the latest rumors from China, Xiaomi is planning to reveal their latest flagship device, the Mi5, in November of this year. The intel revealed that the device will include some of the highest end specs yet seen on a smartphone.

    Here's a breakdown:
    • Qualcomm Snapdragon 820
    • 5.5-inch Quad-HD resolution display
    • 4GB of LPDDR4 RAM
    • 16 or 20MP main camera
    • A fingerprint reader with Qualcomm's ultrasonic fingerprint identification system
    • USB-C
    • Just 5.1mm thick
    Additionally, the source of this info indicated that the device will have no need of a capacitive sensor or a button present anywhere on the device in order to function. Here's a quote with a few additional details,

    Here at HQ, we are crossing our fingers that this device is real and actually comes to the US. What do you guys think?

    Ready to try something other than Moto. Love the idea of the fingerprint reader, punching in a code each time gets old. Also hoping for removable battery. Too much to ask?
