While this year’s MWC has seen accolades of smartphone lineup, Xiaomi, however, has decided to join the race in a much different way by unveiling its new Mi 5C today at Beijing, China. The handset is powered by none-other than Xiaomi’s own in-house chipset named as Surge S1.
The new Xiaomi Mi 5C comes with a 5.15-inch JDI display with 2048 brightness adjustment levels. Underneath sits the very new Surge S1 chipset with eight Cortex-A53 cores — the first half bears a clock speed of 2.2GHz, while the other half is clocked at 1.4GHz. GPU wise, there’s a Mali-T860, whilst it’s backed up with 3GB of RAM and 64GB of inbuilt storage.
Talking about the camera, the Mi 5C is equipped with a 12MP primary sensor at the back with autofocus and LED flash, whereas, up front, there’s an 8MP camera for selfies and video chats.
The whole phones run on the latest Android 7.1 Nougat on top of MIUI out of the box and pack a 2860mAh battery with fast charging capability. The 4G VoLTE supporting phone is made on the 28nm HPC process and consumes less power. So, what do you think about the new smartphone from Xiaomi? Let us know in the comment box below.
