Xiaomi is not releasing the Xiaomi Mi5 right now, but they’re definitely not sitting on their behinds. The company has announced that an entirely new handset would be arriving to the Xiaomi Mi4 family. The Xiaomi Mi4c release date has been confirmed for September 22 and Xiaomi plans to take after Apple a bit and release various handsets in the same family to cater to different smartphone preferences across the planet. The Xiaomi Mi4c is the newest in the family and comes as probably the last device of the line-up, with the Xiaomi Mi5 following suit soon enough.
The Xiaomi Mi4c stands as the most budget-friendly option of the Mi4 family, which is comprised of the Xiaomi Mi4 and the Xiaomi Mi4i. This handset has been leaked repeatedly, especially on TENAA, the Chinese certification agency. From these leaked spec sheet, we could pinpoint that the Xiaomi Mi4c specs sit in-between the Xiaomi Mi4 and Xiaomi Mi4i, making this a mid-ranger in the budget-friendly category.
Xiaomi is already a budget-friendly company, especially compared to companies like Apple, Samsung and others. With the Xiaomi Mi4c, the Chinese giant wants to give every type of smartphone user the option to choose a phone that best suits them and invest just as much as necessary for their own preferences. The Xiaomi Mi4c price will most likely be between $250 and $350, which puts in comfortably in the middle of its price range.
When it comes to specs and features, the Xiaomi Mi4c will get a 5-inch FHD display with a 1920*1080 resolution, a Snapdragon 808 CPU, 2 GB RAM and 16 GB internal storage OR 3 GB RAM and 32 GB internal storage, dual SIM, 4G LTE, 5 MP front camera, 13 MP rear camera, Android 5.1 Lollipop with MIUI 7.0 on board and a pretty big battery about which we don’t know much.
With these specifications, the Xiaomi Mi4c can be an excellent replacement for the OnePlus One or even the OnePlus 2, with its price being right up that alley. Although the design is not yet officially confirmed, the handset is supposed to come in with the same design as the Xiaomi Mi4, which is ultimately a good choice, as many people enjoy that design.
We’re looking forward to the September 22 Xiaomi Mi4c release date, when we will surely find out more about the handset and more about the next big thing, supposedly the Xiaomi Mi5 and its release date, specs, price and features. Xiaomi has a lot of things ahead, we just have to wait and see what they are.
