Xiaomi Mi 5C has been popping in and out of the news for quite some time now and it is still not been launched. The Mi 5C has once again appeared on another certification portal, the time on the website of China Quality Certification centre (CCC or 3C).
According to the source, five different Xiaomi new models were said to have gone through the certification. The models were listed with the following model numbers; 2105212, 2016089, 2016101, MAE136 and MBE6A5. Of the five models, the one listed as MAE136 is said to be the Mi 5C, also code-named Meri.
The listing for the Mi 5C aka Xiaomi Meri shows that the device will use a 5V/2A power adapter and thus does not support the current high voltage fast charge technology. 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 and it did post a score on AnTuTu similar to the Snapdragon 625 capabilities. 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. The Mi 5C is said to have gotten a February release date, we just hope it turns out to be true.
