Xiaomi Mi5c
This new handset is the first one to use Xiaomi's first processor, namely Surge S1. The Mi5c is expected to hit China for around $220 USD as a budget variant of last year's Mi5.

After more than two years in the making, Xiaomi's first processor is finally official. Even more, it arrives inside a new smartphone. Dubbed Mi5c, this Surge S1-powered Android handset is a more affordable Mi5 variant with slightly lower specs as well.

In addition to the Xiaomi Surge S1 (according to the company's benchmarks, this chip is faster than the MediaTek Helio P10 and the Qualcomm Snapdragon 625, but slower than the MediaTek Helio P20), this new handset features 3 GB RAM, 64 GB internal storage, a 12 MP main camera, and a fingerprint reader placed on the front, inside the Home button.

Some details are still missing, but the price of the Mi5c is already public - around $220 USD. Sadly, this price tag only applies to the Chinese market. Other areas will have to wait for the Mi5c to arrive, but that might never happen. In the end, the Mi5c might be a local handset used to test the Surge S1 before using it in the upcoming Mi6.

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.
