Xiaomi could be dropping a bomb on the mid-range smartphone market on 22nd September with the launch of the new Xiaomi Mi4c.
The Xiaomi Mi4c will be the 3rd Mi4 model to launch since last year. From what we have learned from leaks and TENAA documents the new phone will sit between the Xiaomi Mi4i and Mi4 and come in at a very competition price.
Design and sizing of the new Xiaomi phone should be very similar to the Mi4i with a 5-inch 1920 x 1080 display, a 6 core Snapdragon 808 chipset, and options for either 2GB RAM 16GB storage, or 3GB RAM 32GB storage. We doubt the phone will feature room for a micro SD card, but dual SIM 4G LTE support is highly likely.

Cameras will be a 5 mega-pixel front, 13 mega-pixel rear and we should see the Mi4c ship with the latest MIUI 7 system based on Android 5.1.1.
Like most Xiaomi phones the Mi4c will first be launched in China during the Beijing launch event and then rolled out across Xiaomi global launch areas. Those of us not in an official area will need to use a reseller.
