Chinese version of Mi 4i, the Xiaomi Mi 4C Will Feature Snapdragon 808 Chip

by Joe 4

For the past few weeks, we have been hearing a few rumors that the Chinese variant of Mi4i will feature a better processor than Snapdragon 615 that currently powers the device. It was said that the phone will be called as the Xiaomi Mi 4C, where C stands for China. In Mi4i, the ‘i’ reportedly stood for “International”.

Now, things are somewhat clear, thanks to the TENAA listing of the device. The Xiaomi Mi 4C supports all the three network carries in the country, thanks to its TD-LTE/ TD-FDD/ TD-CDMA/ WCDMA/ CDMA2000/ CDMA 1X & GSM standard support.

Specs wise, there’s one major difference. Instead of the Snapdragon 615 octa-core chip that powers the Mi 4i, the Xiaomi Mi 4C will come with the six-core Snapdragon 808 clocked at 1.8GHz. There will be 2GB of RAM on board along with a 13MP rear camera. Up front, there will be a 5-inch 1080p display along with a 5MP camera on top. Another difference in this new model will be the Android version, which is going to be Android 5.1.1 with MIUI 7 on top, instead of Android 5.0.2 on Mi4i.

Since the Xiaomi Mi4C has already passed TENAA, we expect a launch pretty soon. The pricing should be similar to the international version, so expect it to be around the 1299 Yuan mark.

Xiaomi is really stepping up its game in recent times. Snapdragon 808 is considered as a flagship level chip. It even powers the LG G4 flagship! So, getting this SoC in a mid-range device will really boost the performance of the handset.

    Good news for Chinese, bad news for Indians and all the other people who gets Mi4i.

    Hopefully it will costs around 1499 yuan or less, then it would be great. People who has bought the Mi4i recently may be sad of course (especially people who don’t live in India or one of the countries where Xiaomi is active, thus have to pay a mark-up of 40-50USD to resellers)

      I hope that after resellers it will not exceed the level of $240 excluding shipping costs. Moreover for that reference price, I hope that they will include 32GB storage instead of only 16GB (~9GB left because of system). I am really lost I don’t know what to do, I am really tempted to buy the Redmi Note 2 which is slightly bigger than the Mi4i. Note 2 has amazing specs for the price, dual sim, micro SD card slot and Helio X10 (8 clocked at 2GHz). Maybe a 5.5″ would be better for my eyes in the future. I hope that the Mi4c will be available in coming days or I will get the Redmi Note 2.

    I hope it’s going to be available with more than 16GB of internal storage.
