Never-seen-before closeup shot of the Xiaomi Mi5 has surfaced online revealing the device's design features.

Fantasia News has got hold of the raw image of the Xiaomi device, alleged to be of Mi5, which gives a close look at the device's front display panel. Xiaomi Mi5 is shown with curved panel which tends to taper at the edge.

Though it was earlier reported that Xiaomi Mi5 will flaunt dual-edge screen similar to Galaxy S6 Edge, the new picture tells a completely different story. From the image it looks like only the non-display part has been molded to curve towards the edge, while the screen remains flat. [Check-out the new Xiaomi Mi5 image, HERE]
