For the past one month, Xiaomi, in its bid to build buzz around the upcoming Mi5 launch, has been systematically dropping hints on key specifications of the device. Now, the company has released photo samples taken from the flagship phone revealing its camera features.

Xiaomi president Lin Bin, on Weibo, has shared two photo samples taken through Xiaomi Mi5. In both the photos (courtesy, Gizmo China), we can see a Grey Heron flying and the interesting part is it's not blurry despite the bird being in mid-flight mode, hinting that Xiaomi Mi5 will boast superfast autofocus probably supported by laser guided autofocus technology like LG G4 and Asus Zenfone Zoom.

The background featuring the white sand and green-hued mangrove bush and coconut trees in the image are sharp with no hint of blur, we believe the camera might also boast OIS (Optical Image Stabilisation).
