The build up for the Xiaomi MI 5C much-anticipated March launch is already keeping Mi fans on the toes. Amidst a sea of rumors and leaks, a new one is particularly interesting. Contrary to the earlier leak, the new Xiaomi render looks to be inspired (a lot) with the upcoming Galaxy S8 – to the extent that it’s even missing the home button.
Weibo user @strong machine has posted the new image on his account and claims that the image has leaked from Foxconn factory where the phone is being manufactured. Moreover, the new image suggests that the front camera has been shifted from right-hand side to the left corner. Apart from this, the remaining design remains identical to what we had seen earlier. The phone seems to flaunt a metallic unibody design with slim bezels around the display and a 2.5D curved glass layered on top.
Apart from new design-line, the Mi 5C will also become the first smartphone to come with Xiaomi’s proprietary Pinecone V670 processor which has 8xA53 cores and Mali T860 MP4 GPU.
The Xiaomi Mi 5C is expected to sport a 5.5-inch display, 3GB RAM and 64GB internal storage. It may come with a 12MP Omnivision 12870 rear camera, whereas up front it’s likely to have an 8MP selfie shooter. The phone will be powered by a 4500mAh battery and will run on MIUI 8.2 out of the box.
Rumor has it, that the Xiaomi Mi 5C will be priced at around 1499 Yuan, which is approx. Rs. 14,636 in India.
