Xiaomi has always surprised us in the past with its pricing. The best example would be the Redmi Note 2 that comes with the powerful MT6795 octa-core chip, yet starts at 799 Yuan. The latest smartphone from the company is going to the Xiaomi Mi4C. We have been hearing a lot about this particular mid-range smartphone, both officially and unofficially, and we already know most of its specifications.
One thing that we were still unsure about the device was its pricing. Earlier rumors said that the phone would start at 1299 for the 2GB + 16GB version and go all the way up to 1499 for the 3GB + 32GB version. However, according to a new leak, the pricing will be a bit higher than expected. The leaked image shows that the Mi4C is priced at 1999 Yuan which is much higher than what previous rumors stated. However, since the launch is just a few hours away, its best to wait for the official announcement before making any conclusions.
As for the specs, the Xiaomi Mi4C will feature a 5-inch 1080p display powered by the Snapdragon 808 hexa-core chipset. As mentioned above, there will be two RAM variants, 2GB / 3GB with three different storage variants as well 16GB / 32GB / 64GB. At the back, you can expect to see a decent 13MP camera while up front there should be a 5MP front facing shooter. The battery should be the same as the Mi4i international version, i.e. 3120mAh. The phone is confirmed to support entire network in China, with 4G LTE dual SIM dual standby. Another interesting thing about the Mi4C is that its going to be the first Xiaomi smartphone with USB Type-C port. As for software, the phone will feature MIUI 7 based on Android 5.1.
These specs are quite impressive for a mid-range flagship. However, if the company does price it at 1999 Yuan, I am sure many fans will be disappointed. Anyways, since the launch is just a couple of hours away, lets wait for more details at the event.
