Xiaomi is on a roll. After securing a prime spot as one of the world’s Top Three Smartphone makers for 2015, Xiaomi makes waves once again by being poised to roll out the Xiaomi Mi4c, which will be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 808.
The phone model was first leaked by Weibo user @JetaimeTech, who posted a picture of the phone’s box. The photo was since reposted by GizmoChina. Later, the phone’s imminent release was confirmed when its TENAA listing and approval surfaced.
The Xiaomi Mi4c is limited only to the Chinese market. In fact, additional details of the rumor state that the unit will be released in limited quantities.
That detail aside, here are the specs for the Xiaomi Mi4c, which is expected to retail at only 1,299 Yuan, or around $200:
Processor/Chipset: 1.8GHz Hexa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 MSM8992
GPU: Adreno 418
OS: Android 5.1.1 Lollipop, with MIUI 7 OS
Internal Storage: 16GB
Display: 5-inch full HD IPS screen with a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels
Cameras: Primary: 13MP; Secondary: 5MP
Battery: 3,080 mAh
Goodies: USB Type-C port
The Mi4c is more powerful than its international counterpart, the Mi4i, as the Mi4i is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 MSM8939, clocking at 1.7 GHz. The rest of the Mi4c might be just as the Mi4i, including Corning scratch-resistant glass protection, dual SIM cards, GSM/HSPA/LTE connectivity, and autofocus plus dual-LED/dual tone flash for its primary camera.
Xiaomi reserved the best of the Mi4 series for the Chinese market, and with good reason. The company has always been keen on catering to its home base, so it is no surprise that the local Mi4 release is more powerful than the international version.
Xiaomi is excelling at keeping its prime value proposition: Its fresh, stylish, but affordable take on Android. It is the best weapon in its arsenal, and it will be what will keep the company among the top smartphone makers. With this latest release, Xiaomi seems to be doing well at playing up its unique value proposition.
