Xiaomi Mi 4c confirmed to have USB Type-C, Snapdragon 808


With less than a week separating now from the launch of the Xiaomi Mi 4c, more and more leaks and rumours are starting to come out. Interestingly, there’s also a little official info thrown in this time.

Top Xiaomi exec Bin Lin has confirmed that the upcoming phone will have a Snapdragon 808 processor and a USB Type-C port. Both features had been long rumoured for the phone, but today’s development should bring the rumours to an end.

The phone will be formally announced 22nd September. A couple different variants of the device are expected, with varying RAM capacities and perhaps even storage.

USB Type-C is finally starting to be adopted at a much wider scale than say, the start of the year. LeTV was the first Android phone maker to have shipped its devices with USB Type-C (Nokia’s N1 was the first tablet), which was soon followed by the OnePlus 2.

Besides USB Type-C and a Snapdragon 808 hexa-core processor, the Mi 4c will have a 13 mega-pixel rear camera, a 5 mega-pixel front facing camera, a 5-inch screen and a 3120mAh battery. All of this is very reminiscent of the Xiaomi Mi 4i, a phone which didn’t fare as well on the market as Xiaomi would’ve liked. The company would be hoping to make amends with the Mi 4c.

    Definitively my next phone if it will become soon available on international markets and it has the price tag of the Mi4i or (very unlikely) less

    This could be the beginning of a beautiful friendship if Xiaomi would not forget about FDD-LTE B20 800Mhz

      I doubt it. As it was in the past, NO Xiaomi phone has ever had FDD-LTE band 20 and I don’t think it will change any time soon. Xiaomi would have to focus on EU market in order for them to make sense to include the B20. Rather look elsewhere for a phone with the B20 support. :o)

      ZUK Z1??? It is a completely different phone; it’s a not-so-compact 5.5″ phone with a (obsolete?) 32bit SD801

        What is obsolete about SD801? It still has quite a lot of juice for anything that you will run on the phone. It is not necessary to blindly follow the cult of “everything that is not the latest tech is useless”… ;o)

          I agree, that’s why I put a question mark. Nevertheless ZUK Z1 leitmotif is the to be a solid phablet based on consolidated technology, while Mi4c wannabe an allnew compact speedy phone 🙂

    Great device but IMO its price will be above $290 after resellers for the 32gb rom version. Adding shipping costs it is almost a flagship’s price. Even if I hate white color, the original MI4 is still better than the MI4C. I think that I will get the Redmi Note 2, I will save some money and I will have much better performances for the money.

      808 is much better than 6795 which in fact is similar to 6752 having crappy g6200 GPU
      but yes, steel chassis rocks

    Wow, a 5-inch screen and a 3120mAh battery, that’s quite uncommon. Has this been confirmed or is this a rumour? This might become my next device but I’m afraid they will forget about B20 as usual. Still might consider it as it is not the number 1 frequency my provider uses. Price has to be very good though.

      I believe the mi4i got the same 3,120 mAh battery size, so it wouldn’t be a surpise. As shown before, Mi4c has the same plastic body as the mi4i. Most likely a lot of components of the mi4i are also be in the mi4c to keep the costs low. So basically, you can look up the mi4i reviews and particularly look at the screen quality and camera quality.

      most likely is going to be the cheapest SD808 phone out there.

      …just like they did with the MT6795
