Xiaomi is relentless when it comes to devices launches. This China-based smartphone OEM has already released a number of smartphones and other smart gadgets this year, but they’re still nowhere near done as far as 2015 announcements go. The company is still expected to release their Mi 5 flagship, and there was also some talk about a device with a curved display on top. Before any of that happens, Xiaomi will unveil the Xiaomi Mi 4C, the higher-end variant of the Xiaomi Mi 4i which was announced earlier this year in India.
This smartphone has been leaking left and right, and Xiaomi’s co-founder has already confirmed the existence of this smartphone. The Xiaomi Mi 4C will almost certainly arrive on September 22nd, and we already have quite a few details about this smartphone. Before we start talking about previously leaked specs of this device, let’s check out the newest official confirmation from Xiaomi’s camp. The company’s co-founder has confirmed that Xiaomi Mi 4C will work with both Type-C and MicroUSB cables. This handset will, in fact, ship with both of these cables out of the box, well, sort of. You’ll be able to plug in the Type-C connector to the port on the phone, and on the back of it you’ll have the option to plug in the regular MicroUSB cable. So the Type-C connector will basically convert the connection back to MicroUSB, which might not be a bad idea in the end.
That being said, it is worth mentioning that the Xiaomi Mi 4C will probably ship in three variants. The first variant will sport 16GB of internal storage and 2GB of RAM, while the other one will ship with 32GB of in-built storage 3GB of RAM. The last, and most expensive variant, will offer 64GB of native storage and 3GB of RAM. Keep in mind that this device will be made in only 100,000 copies, so this is sort of Xiaomi’s limited edition smartphone. The 32GB / 3GB RAM variant of the device is expected to cost around $235, and all these devices will be powered by the Snapdragon 808 64-bit hexa-core processor. Other specs will be quite similar to the Xiaomi Mi 4i’s specs, and the Xiaomi Mi 4C is also expected to look almost identical to that device.
