Xiaomi unveils $200 handset – Mi 4c - for Chinese market

At its Tuesday product launch event, Chinese device manufacturer Xiaomi unveiled its newest smartphone --- the Mi 4c. Along with the new handset, the other new products announced by Xiaomi at the Tuesday event included the Mi Bluetooth Speaker and the company's own mobile service called Mi Mobile.

The newly-unveiled Mi 4c smartphone is an attractive $200-priced budget version of Xiaomi's flagship Mi 4 handset.

The new Mi 4c handset is exclusively aimed at the company's China-based customer; and will be available for purchase at Mi.com from September 23. The handset will be the first device available on Xiaomi's new Mi Mobile service.

Some of the key features of the Mi 4c handset include a 5-inch Full HD display; a Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 processor; a 13-megapixel rear camera; a 5-megapixel front camera; a 3,080mAh battery; and a new USB Type-C port with Quick Charge 2.0 ability.

The Xiaomi Mi 4c is a 4G Dual SIM handset which will be available in two models --- a 16GB onboard storage model with 2GB RAM; and a 32GB onboard storage model with 3GB RAM. Both the Mi 4c models will ship with Xiaomi's older MI UI 6 software, though the company plans to make its new MI UI version 7 available in the near future.
