Xiaomi Mi 4c coming Tuesday, pricing leaks


xiaomi-mi4cThat the Xiaomi Mi 4c is supposed to come September 22nd is no secret. However, news is that Xiaomi boss Bin Lin has tweeted (weibo’d, to be precise) about the launch, thereby making it a lot more official.

Lin sent out the message via Weibo earlier today. That does confirm the launch date to be 22nd September, i.e., coming Tuesday, but the other thing which you should be more interested in — pricing — has leaked also.

Word is that the hexa-core Snapdragon 808 powered Xiaomi Mi 4c will come in a couple of different variants. These will have varying amounts of RAM and storage, it’s being said. The first, basic version of the Mi 4c will have 2GB of RAM and 16GB of storage, while the higher-end variant of the phone will ship with 3GB of RAM and 64GB of on-board storage.

Xiaomi drew a lot of flak for having only a 16GB version of the Mi 4i at launch, which is something the company will want to improve upon. As for the pricing, the 16GB Mi 4c should be around the 1299 Yuan (US$203) mark, while the higher-end 3GB RAM/64GB ROM Mi 4c is expected to cost 1499 Yuan (US$235).

If that does happen, it’ll make the Xiaomi Mi 4c one of the most affordable 64GB ROM phones around. Xiaomi certainly will want to do that, since the Mi 4i wasn’t particularly what the company hoped it’d be.

    Why are they so stubborn with refraining from 3GB32GB option? It’s just ideal size for me.

    They should give us 5 inch smart phone.

    64GB version is not coming anytime soon. Only 2GB/16GB ROM and 3GB/32GB ROM version will be released next week with the 3GB/32GB ROM version priced at 1499 yuan according to most rumours.

    They only have said there might be a 64GB version in the future, but time frame is not known yet.

      3/32 is all I need brother 🙂 If around 240 after resellers, it will be mine 🙂

          That’s huge if it is around that price, I mean with shipping costs it is almost the price of a flagship phone. Of course by adding $50+. Hope that gearbest will have it a competitive pricing. Is there a 2gb ram and 32 gb rom coming?

            Shipping costs are included in the price (of course not shipping by DHL or UPS, but more like China Post or HK Post or Singapore post).

            At this moment, no 2/32gb combo.

              Thanks, I am wondering if I should for the Mi4c or get the Redmi Note 2. I am scared about the size of the last one. Honestly, Note 2 is the best value for the money so I hope that resellers would practice good prices for the Mi4c. Moreover, at $300 for the 32GB version is too much when the Mi4 is available for $230 with a cpu which is still competitive (soc 801).

              Both phones are great given the price tag. Even the Mi4 looks good with a metal body, but I believe no 4G support.

          It will drop when something new comes out that`s competitive, although saying that the Mi4i is still selling for over 200$ which is criminal 😀
