Xiaomi’s Mi 4c Official, Snapdragon 808, USB Type C, Starts At 9.5K


Here’s Xiaomi’s upgraded flagship

After all the rumors of the a better, faster Mi 4, Xiaomi has officially unveiled their Mi 4c in China. The new phone is almost identical to the Mi 4i launched in India and the Philippines externally though internally it’s another beast.

Xiaomi Mi 4c specs

  • Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 hexa-core processor
  • Adreno 418 GPU
  • 2GB/3GB of RAM
  • 5-inch full HD display, 1920 x 1080 resolution
  • 16GB/32GB of storage
  • 13-megapixel rear camera, phase detection AF
  • 5-megapixel wide-angle camera
  • Dual-SIM
  • 3G, LTE
  • WiFi, Bluetooth, GPS, A-GPS, USB Type C, IR blaster
  • Android 5.1 with MUI
  • 3080mAh battery


Internally, the Mi 4c runs Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 808 hexa-core processor (the same one in LG’s G4) paired with an Adreno 418 GPU, 2GB/3GB of RAM, a USB Type-C connector with Quick Charge 2.0 and a new edge tap feature built into the sides of the phone. The edge tap feature allows you to take photos or go back a screen by simply tapping on the edge of the phone, which should save you a few taps on the display when you’re in a hurry.


The phone comes in two configurations – a 2GB/16GB variant and a more powerful 3GB/32GB variant, priced at RMB 1299 (Php 9.5K) and RMB 1499 (Php 11K) respectively. No word yet if this new, more powerful variant will come to the PH.

      1. sa mga rooters lang nman mas advisable yung expansion ng storage, if ever media content lng nman mailalagay mo sa microSD. the OS wont allow it din naman. may Mega app din na nag ooffer ng 50GB storage via cloud.

        1. disagree ako dun na sa rooters lng advisable ang expandable storage, yes may mga cloud based storage tulad ng Mega app na may free 50gb storage, pero di lahat(lalo na dito sa pinas) may regular na internet access or broadband plan, pra laging ma access ang files nila, at mas secure ang sd card, unlike ng cloud na pwde mahack at manakaw ang files or important documents mo

  1. Because most readers are Filipinos and don’t want to google the Php equivalent of a gadget’s listed price. There’s also an off chance that the gadget gets released here in the Philippines so it’s good information on what to expect.

    And you shouldn’t be here as well if you make comments like that.

  2. I would have put this on my waiting list and buy it immediately in a heartbeat if it weren’t for the “no microSD”. As expected from Xiaomi phones.

  3. well regardless if it’s storage is expandable or not. Apple made it’s mark and all their devices has no storage expansion. you can use USB OTG, they are getting smaller and smaller.
