Xiaomi Mi 4c confirmed to have Snapdragon 808 and USB Type-C
Xiaomi is set to unveil the Mi 4c smartphone the day after LG's own event for its upcoming phablet. While prices and launch dates for the Mi 4c remain unknown, Xiaomi managers and CEO Jun Lei have already spilled the beans of some hardware features.
According to the men in charge, the Xiaomi Mi 4c will have a 64-bit hexa-core Snapdragon 808 SoC with Adreno 418 graphics, integrated Hexagon V56 DSP (digital signal processor), Bluetooth 4.1, 802.11ac wireless, and USB 3.0. Four of the six processor cores will be the lower-power Cortex-A53 while the remaining two will be the higher-power Cortex-A57.
The Type-C port is a pleasant surprise given that the new OnePlus 2 launched with a disappointing Micro-USB 2.0 port when most users were anticipating otherwise. Quick Charge will also likely be supported. Based on previous rumors, we are expecting the Mi 4c to launch with a 5-inch FHD display, 2 to 3 GB RAM, up to 32 GB eMMC, 13 MP and 5 MP rear and front cameras, and a 3000 mAh battery.
