Xiaomi Mi 4c spotted at TENAA, benchmarked already
Xiaomi Mi 4i was launched this spring as an alternative, more affordable version of the popular Xiaomi Mi 4. It features a 5" IPS 1080p display, a Snapdragon 615 chipset and s wrapped in plastic instead of glass.
Today a new Xiaomi Mi 4c leaked from various sources - the Chinese TENAA certification body, AnTuTu benchmark database, and previously it was spotted on Geekbench results.
The pictures from TENAA reveals absolutely the same body and measurements as the Xiaomi Mi 4i. It seems the new Mi 4c is just a small upgrade over the 4i and will keep the slim profile and matte rear cover. Its footprint and weight are absolutely identical with its predecessor, too.
But while the Mi 4c will offer the same 5" 1080p screen, it will bring an upgraded chipset - Snapdragon 808. The SoC, which debuted within the LG G4, packs a hexa-core processor with 2x Cortex-A57 at 1.8GHz and 4x Cortex-A53 at 1.44GHz, Adreno 418 GPU and 2GB of RAM.
The Android version has also been bumped up to 5.1.1 Lollipop, which suggests the Xiaomi Mi 4c will most probably run on the MIUI v7.
The rest of the specs confirmed by TENAA are the same as the Mi 4i - a 13MP main camera with dual-LED flash, a 5MP selfie snapper, 16GB non-expandable storage, LTE connectivity, and 3,100 mAh battery.
All of those leaks suggest the Xiaomi Mi 4c announcement should be happening very soon.
