Xiaomi Mi 5C has been fizzling in and out of the news radar for quite some time now. The device has now been listed on popular online mall Jingdong (JD.com) with a price tag of 9,999 Yuan which is very likely an error. This is a surprising one, though, and could only mean that the Mi 5C’s launch is perhaps imminent.
According to the source, this is a third party listing and could be just to elicit our enthusiasm for the long expected Xiaomi smartphone. But then we never can tell, the Xiaomi Mi 5C could be launched very soon but not for 9999 Yuan. The device has previously been spotted on Taoboa listed with a 999 Yuan price tag ($144), so it is possible the Jingdong-listed 9999 Yuan price tag is an error. The device is speculated to fall into the 999 Yuan price category when launched considering the specs.
Renders of the device has featured in several leaks earlier showing us the sleek design of the Mi 5C which is code-named Xiaomi Meri. The Mi 5C comes with ultra-narrow bezels around the display and a sleek design overall. The device is also tipped to launch with Xiaomi’s own Pinecone processor. Other likely specs of the Mi 5C includes a 5.5-inch display with 2.5D curved glass, 3GB of RAM, 64GB of internal storage, a 12MP rear camera and 8MP front-facing selfie shooter. The device will run on MIUI 8 based on Android Marshmallow.
