Xiaomi, one of the biggest cell phone manufactures in China have announced their newest phone, the Mi 4c. The Mi 4c is an upgrade to the Mi 4i which was released in April. The Mi 4c has an upgraded processor, a bump in RAM from 2 GB to 3 GB and comes with Android 5.1.1 Lollipop.

As you can see, the Mi 4c has a really impressive spec list. What may be even more impressive is the price. In China it will be priced at 1,299 yuan which translates to $203 US Dollars. 1,299 yuan will get you a Mi 4c with 2 GB of RAM and 16 GB of memory while 1,499 yuan ($235 US Dollars) will get you the upgraded 3GB/32GB variant. Both variants will be available in several colors including white, pink, yellow and blue.
We’re happy to see more companies adopting the USB Type-C connector and its reversible cable, but it would be nice to see version 3.0 instead of version 2.0. USB 3.0 allows for faster transfer speeds and faster charging time. The Mi 4c WILL offer Qualcomm’s fast charging 2.0 standard unlike the OnePlus 2 which also features a USB Type-C with no fast charging. There has been no word on wireless charging yet so we’re going to assume it’s not present. If you have nothing but Micro USB cables laying around, Xiaomi will offer a USB Type C to Micro USB connector extremely cheap (5 yuan).
The Mi 4c will debut a brand new feature from Xiaomi called Edge Tap. Edge Tap will allow you to quickly take a picture with one tap on the side of your phone and will allow you to go back to your previous picture or task with a double tap. It appears from the press photos that there will be an area under the power button where you can tap to take advantage of this feature. We just wonder how many pictures of the insides of pockets the Mi 4c will be taking.
And speaking of the camera, the Mi 4c will be packing a 5 MP shooter on the front for your selfies and a 13 MP main shooter on the back. The main camera has a Sony IMX258/Samsung S5K3M2ISOCELL sensor and dual tone flash. The front camera has a wide angle lens and a beautify feature.
So far we’ve only heard that the Mi 4c is going to be only released in China, but we hope to see it come to other parts of the World with the impressive spec-line and even more impressive pricing.
