More than a year after launching the Xiaomi Mi4 smartphone, Xiaomi is introducing an updated model called the Mi4C. It has a faster processor, comes with a choice of colorful case options, and a USB Type C connector.

The Xiaomi Mi 4C officially launches in China on September 22nd, but a number of details are already available.

Update: Xiaomi has officially introduced the Mi 4c smartphone in China, where it’s priced at about $205 and up.

Xiaomi has confirmed that the phone features a Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 hexa-core processor and a USB Type-C port. That means you can use reversible charging cables, but we don’t yet know if the phone supports high-speed and high-power USB 3.x cables or if it’ll top out at USB 2.0 connections.

The phone also has a 5MP front-facing wide-angle camera with an 85 degree field of view for snapping group selfies.

Details about memory, storage, screen resolution, pricing, and other details should be announced on September 22nd.

While Xiaomi doesn’t yet sell its smartphones in the United States, the company has been expanding in recent years and now offers a number of products in Brazil, India, and other markets.

  1. Hey Xiaomi WAKE UP! Lose the crappy MiUI overlay already! I promise, you will sell LOTS more devices without it.

      1. Or from Android.
        My Samsung Galaxy Xcover2 have 4gb ROM but 3gb of it is bloatware.
        A lot of apps I never use.
        Much better with MIUI6 which I have in my newly bought Xiaomi Redmi Note 2.

    1. MIUI is much better then Android.
      Xiaomi don´t install a lot of bloatware as Android do i co-work with smartphone makers like Samsung.
      My Samsung Galaxy Xcover2, have 4gb ROM and 3gb of it is a lot of bloatware.
      Apps which I never use!!

    2. MIUI doesn’t come with bloatware like most of regular ROMs (HTC sense, Touchwiz etc…)

      Someone might like it, someone might not, but this is not the point:
      MIUI was born before the phone maker and that’s why Hugo Barra said that Xiaomi is mainly a software company.

      they sell paid services through MIUI, like cloud services,Virtual sim etc…
      that’s why they sell phones at nearly cost prices.

      their phones usually sell in matter of seconds that they barely can keep with the demand.

      what are your asking is never going to happen because it’s another concept of business.

  2. Not because I just recently bought a Mi4, but it looks a bit cheap with the polycarbonate case… On the plus side it looks pretty slim, hope they kept the 3000+ mAh battery.

    1. It is likely to retail around 200$ so a bit cheaper than the Mi4. It is based on the 4i that is a cut down mi4 made for India. At that price it’s fine – ofc no microSD and SD620 would have been preferable.To be fair the mi 4i looks pretty good ,less cheap than other plastic devices https://www.gsmarena.com/xiaomi_mi_4i-pictures-7211.php

      As for memory, storage, dimensions and other specs, it went through TENAA quite a while ago (starts at 2GB+16GB) https://shouji.tenaa.com.cn/Mobile/MobileDetail.aspx?code=zDErPbEoeuAgCnH5gd4/ORXl/M4Ykfq5

    2. Polycarbonate cases have their advantages… More likely to have a removable back cover that you don’t need special tools to access, better at keeping hot spots from warming your hands uncomfortably, usually better at handling impacts without breaking for given weight/thickness, a bit lighter, more easy to replace for either custom backs and/or a larger backing to make room for a larger battery, and they’re pretty much immune to fingerprints… But, yeah, some people prefer metal or just don’t like a dull matte finish… While others may not care because they’ll be getting a protective case regardless…
