Xiaomi Mi 5c Android smartphone to launch for about $145 USD
Xiaomi Mi 5c
This handset, codenamed Meri, is expected to launch as the cheapest Mi handset by Xiaomi. According to the latest leak from China, the (probably) MediaTek Helio P20-powered smartphone would carry a price tag of less than $150 USD.

Xiaomi Mi 5c has been in the rumor mill for a while, but now it looks like its launch is finally drawing near. Back in October, some live images leaked online. Now, although nothing is official yet and the rumors did not even mention some key specs, we hear that this upcoming handset will debut as the most affordable member of the Mi lineup.

This smartphone, also known as Meri, is expected to feature an octa-core processor, most likely the MediaTek Helio P20, next to 3 GB RAM, and 64 GB internal storage. However, the cheapest variant might come with less of both. This low-end handset is expected to run Android 6.0 Marshmallow with MIUI 8 on top, all for a price tag of CNY 999 - around $144 USD using today's exchange rate. 

Unfortunately, we do not know if the price mentioned above is for the cheapest variant, or the one with 3 GB memory and 64 GB storage. The official announcement, on the other hand, is expected for next month, so stay tuned.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
