In the past few weeks, we’ve witnessed quite a number of surprises in the tech world. A few weeks ago, Apple launched the iPhone 6s and the iPhone 6s Plus with an innovative 3D-Touch display. A couple of weeks after, Google announced the LG Nexus 5X and the Huawei Nexus 6P, two of the first devices to come preloaded with Android 6.0 Marshmallow. And only a couple of days after that, LG revealed the amazing V10 which comes two screens and two front cameras.
And just when we thought we’ve seen it all, the Xiaomi Mi 4c came along, wanting some of the attention for itself. Xiaomi has grown to be a popular smartphone manufacturer in the Chinese market, giving smartphone giants like Samsung, LG and HTC a scare. Xiaomi is known to offer budget smartphones with premium features at affordable prices, and as a result, it has grown popular amongst smartphone users.
The Mi 4c was announced last week in September and is one of those budget phones Xiaomi offers that come with its own fair share of premium features.
Xiaomi Mi 4c is a 5.0-incher with an IPS LCD display and a 1080 x 1920p resolution (441 pixels per inch). It is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 chipset and a Hexa-core processor (quad-core 1.44 GHz and dual-core 1.82 GHz).
The Xiaomi Mi 4c runs on Android 5.1 Lollipop based MIUI 7. The camera on this device is pretty spectacular; there is a 13-megapixel camera and a dual-LED flash at the back of this device, and a 5-megapixel selfie camera in front.
The Xiaomi Mi 4c has two variants, the first runs on 2GB of RAM and has internal memory of 16GB. The second variant runs on 3GB of RAM and has internal memory of 32GB. However, there is no microSD slot available to expand memory, something phone users might find unsettling.
This device also comes with a USB Type-C plug, a new USB standard that allows for charging and data transfer. Underneath the Mi 4c lies a 3080 mAh battery which is said to charge 40% in 60 minutes with the Quick Charge 2.0 feature.
Surely, with these features Xiaomi is in a bid to to impress us, and they have been persistent so far. Just last week, it was announced that the Xiaomi Mi 5 will beat other flagships, including the Samsung Galaxy S7, to be the first device to run on Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 820.
Encased in a polycarbonate unibody design, the Mi 4c is available in Grey, Blue, Pink, White, and Yellow colors. Price is pegged at $239 for the 2GB RAM variant, and $289 for the 3GB RAM variant.Click Here To Buy
