Looking at the leaked image though, it is important to be noted that it could be meant only for China. The Redmi Note smartphones in this image are written as Hongmi Note, which is a China specific name. That said, it would also mean that the products would quite certainly follow through to India soon enough.
Also, going by Xiaomi’s history of selling high-end features at very low prices, it wouldn’t be a long shot to expect a fingerprint sensor in the Xiaomi Mi 5. In fact, such rumours have been floating on the Internet also. With the Snapdragon 820 SoC, Qualcomm has showcased an impressive fingerprint sensor, which could be put to use in the Mi5.
