A new Xiaomi handset has surfaced on the Internet tipping that the Chinese company may be working on another variant of its Mi 4 handset, after the Xiaomi Mi 4i. The yet-to-be-announced Xiaomi Mi 4c smartphone has reportedly been spotted at Chinese certification authority, as well as AnTuTu benchmark listing.
The Tenaa listing for a handset named Millet 2015561, thought to be for the Mi 4c, shows the handset in its full glory in images, and also details some specifications. By looking at the images in the Tenaa listing, the Mi 4c seems sporting similar design as the Xiaomi Mi 4i. The Mi 4c was spotted in a White colour variant.
The AnTuTu benchmarks also list (via TechGadgetsz) the alleged Mi 4c’s specifications, which include a 5-inch full-HD (1080×1920 pixels) display; 1.4GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 processor; 2GB of RAM; MIUI 7; a 13-megapixel rear camera; a 5-megapixel front camera; 16GB inbuilt storage; 3G; GPRS/ EDGE; 4G LTE; measures 138.1×69.6×7.8mm, and will weigh 130 grams.
The Tenaa listing, over and above these specifications, also mentions connectivity options such as infrared, Bluetooth, FM radio, and GPS; a 5x optical zoom and CMOS camera sensor; an accelerometer, proximity sensor, and ambient light sensor; as well as Red, Yellow, Orange, Green, Black, and White colour variants. It also lists a 1.8GHz clock speed for the unnamed hexa-core SoC.
Another Xiaomi handset dubbed ‘Libra’ with Snapdragon 808 processor was benchmarked last month, and appears to be the same handset.
All these leaks should be taken with a pinch of salt as Xiaomi has not mentioned anything about the upcoming device and the legitimacy of the leaks remains questionable.
Recently, Xiaomi’s anticipated upcoming flagship smartphone, the Mi 5, was spotted at the AnTuTu benchmark tipping purported specifications. According to the leaked benchmark listing, the rumoured Xiaomi Mi 5 smartphone was seen scoring an impressive 73,075 points in the benchmark result. Furthermore, the high score on AnTuTu was said to be due to the deca-core CPU found on the MediaTek Helio X20 SoC.
The Chinese manufacturer earlier this month unveiled the new Redmi Note 2 and Redmi Note 2 Prime smartphones alongside showcasing its new MIUI 7 custom ROM based on Android 5.0 Lollipop.
The Xiaomi Redmi Note 2 was priced at CNY 899 (approximately Rs. 9,000), while the Xiaomi Redmi Note 2 Prime was priced at CNY 999 (approximately Rs. 10,000). The Redmi Note 2 would also be available in a 3G-only variant which will be available at CNY 799 (approximately Rs. 8,000). Last week, Xiaomi revealed the global MIUI 7 ROM in India alongside announcing availability of new coloured versions of Mi 4i as a limited edition.
