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.
