Xiaomi Mi 5c is a smartphone people are waiting for. Information about the device has been leaking out for some time and it suggests the phone will closely resemble the Xiaomi Mi 5 on the front in terms of the design. However, unlike the Xiaomi Mi 5, the glass has been replaced with metal for the backside.
Buzzword is that the phone will cost 999 Yuan in China after launch, which rumors say, will be in December. The device is likely to sport a 5.5-inch full HD (1920 x 1080) display, along with 3GB of RAM and 64GB of native storage.
Xiaomi’s in-house SoC called ‘Pine Cone’ or ‘Pinecone’ will power the phone. The phone’s processor will clock at 2.2GHz, and Android 6.0 Marshmallow-based MIUI 8 will be shipped. The smartphone is equipped with a 12-megapixel camera placed on the back of Xiaomi Mi 5c. The front side of phone carries an 8-megapixel snapper. And the admirers of NFC functionality have a reason to rejoice as the NFC chip has been included with the phone,
This is the first Xiaomi smartphone that will be fueled by their own processor and people are curious to know how it works. For now, we can just say that it would be an octa-core chip, and that it will be clocked at 2.2GHz. It will be a mid-range smartphone, so it is only fair that we expect mid-range performance from it.
While there is an 8-megapixel snapper on the phone’s front side, those who need NFC functionality, will be glad to know that the NFC chip will be included here as well.
However, as the phone has not yet released, you just cannot say anything decisively. If you want more information, just wait till the phone comes down.
Mi 5c is expected to launch with Android 6.0 Marshmallow with MIUI 8 running on top. Xiaomi could release the smartphone at an event in December.
