The next addition to the Xiaomi Mi4 series has appeared at TENAA showing off a 1.8Ghz Snapdragon 808 chipset.
Imagine the Xiaomi Mi4i with more powerful hardware and you already have a very good idea what the Xiaomi Mi4C is going to look like. TENAA documents show a phone with the same white polycarbonate body as the Mi4i and includes the same camera, flash and main speaker location areas.
Physically I like the Xiaomi Mi4i, but that Snapdragon 615 really does hinder the performance of an otherwise great phone. For the Mi4C, Xiaomi have ditched the 615 in favour of a Snapdragon 808.
The TENAA details also mention 2GB RAM, 16GB memory, Android 5.1.1, while packaging from the phone also states a 3080Ah battery and USB Type C. Pricing in China is thought to be around 1559 Yuan ($251), but expect the price to rise once resellers get their hands on them.
After using the Mi4i and enjoying the body, feel and camera, I really hope that Xiaomi have managed to get the performance right in the latest rendition.
