Xiaomi Officially Unveils Mi 4c Smartphone


Xiaomi just announced the new Mi 4c smartphone in China, and it packs quite a punch on the specs front. On the SoC side we’ve got the Snapdragon 808 running the show, a processor recently seen in the highly touted Moto X Pure edition. While the Moto X Pure is affordable at $399, the Mi 4c base model will check in at just 1,299 Chinese Yuan ($204)! In addition to the high-end processor we also get a 5-inch Full HD display, 13MP camera (Sony IMX258/Samsung S5K3M2) around back with phase detection autofocus and two-tone flash, 5MP front camera, dual-SIM 4G, and a 3,080mAh battery with USB Type-C and QuickCharge 2.0 capability. The Mi 4c even features an IR blaster, a very useful feature that Samsung took away on their high-end Note 5 for some unknown reason.

There will be two variants of the Mi 4c available at launch, both very reasonably priced. The 2 GB variant with 16 GB of on-board storage will retail for 1,299 Yuan ($204) while he 3 GB variant with 32 GB on-board storage will cost 1,499 Yuan ($235). Xiaomi has also brought over their display technologies, including Sunlight Display and Night Mode to the Mi 4c. Currently this phone is only slated for release in China, with black, white, blue, pink and orange color variants available at launch. The specs on this phone are very impressive for the price, so we’ll let you know if there is any chance of an international release. What do you think of Xiaomi’s latest offering?

I fell in love with Android with the Nexus One release and realized that it was superior to iOS in all the ways I care about. I still use a Mac (and an iPhone for the camera), but my Apple tech products pale in comparison to my number of Android devices (watches, tablets, and phones). When I’m not rooting/modding one of my many Android phones or doing math/programming, you can find me taking in Phoenix Suns/Arizona Diamondbacks games in downtown Phoenix, and drinking good beer!"
