It is customary for Xiaomi to release a cheaper version of its flagship smartphone during the latter’s one-year anniversary. Last year, the company released the Xiaomi Mi 4c, which is a cheaper variant of the Mi 4, along with the Mi 5 and the Mi 5 Pro. Now, Xiaomi is readying a new device that will be sold as the Mi 5c. Xiaomi Mi 5c specifications and images have been revealed.
Xiaomi Mi 5c Specifications & Images
According to a new report, the Xiaomi Mi 5c will feature a metal body. However, we’re not sure whether this is the final version of the device’s design. It could be one of the many prototypes that Xiaomi makes. It will feature a 5-inch 1080p display with 2.5D curved glass protection. The Mi 5c will also be equipped with a 2.2GHz octa-core processor, 3GB RAM, and 64GB internal storage. However, there should be a 16GB or 32GB storage variant of the device.
It will feature a front-facing home button with an embedded fingerprint sensor. The fingerprint sensor is said to be similar that the “no-gap” Sense ID ultrasonic fingerprint sensor used in the Mi 5 Plus. It runs MIUI 8 based on Android 6.0 Marshmallow. There’s currently no information about the resolution or other features of its front-facing and rear-facing cameras. The rear-facing camera is accompanied by a dual-tone flash though.
