Design of Xiaomi Mi 5
While nothing is revealed about design of Xiaomi Mi 5. But unsurprisingly we could expect that it will look as similar as Mi 4. Basically, design wise I have no complaint with this device as it might come with a decent mirror finishing at back.
This device might be a slim one. Power buttons and volume rocker keys will be on the right side of the phone.
Design of this smartphone will be a premium because Xiaomi wants to compete with Apple. On the front there will be a home button, which also works as a fingerprint scanner.
Again as Mi 4, Xiaomi will not provide any card slot for expanding space. Definitely, this comes out as its main cons. This Xiaomi Mi5 will not support card slot, thus Xiaomi might provide OTG USB support by which you will be able to expand you memory and can transfer files instantly.

Price of Xiaomi Mi 5
As design of this phone will be slim and simple and on the other hand Xiaomi improves many of its cons of their smartphones, which create problems while operating it in Mi 4 and Mi 4i. In spite of this they will provide new Octa core CPU of Snapdragon 820 SoC.
There will no water proof casing and no Li-ion battery in Mi 5, which could make the smartphone much better.
Thus, Xiaomi would make this phone to keep in mind for the mid-range users. So, it is expected that this phone comes near about INR Rs. 21,999 for pro version and Rs. 17,000, Rs. 18,000 for 32 GB and 64 GB variant, respectively.
