While the Chinese company is yet to confirm the existence of the Xiaomi Mi 4c, the retail box image leak tips that the handset is indeed in the works and could be launched in the coming months. The new handset is said to be another variant of the Xiaomi Mi 4 handset, after the Xiaomi Mi 4i (seen above).
For specifications, the retail box tips that the smartphone will be powered by a Snapdragon 808 processor, in line with an AnTuTu benchmark leak recently.
Other specifications include a 5-inch full-HD display; 2GB of RAM; 16GB storage, and a 3080mAh battery. A 13-megapixel rear camera is listed on the retail box as well alongside a 5-megapixel front camera.
The Xiaomi Mi 4c might be the company's first smartphone featuring USB Type-C, possibly version 3.0, according to the leaked retail box image. The handset is said to run MIUI ROM, most likely the recently released MIUI 7 build. The leaked image was first spotted on Weibo by GizmoChina.
Previously leaked AnTuTu benchmark results tipped that the alleged Mi 4c will come with 1.4GHz hexa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 processor and will feature 3G, GPRS/ EDGE and 4G LTE connectivity options. It was said to measure 138.1x69.6x7.8mm, and weigh 130 grams.
Another Xiaomi handset dubbed 'Libra' with Snapdragon 808 processor was benchmarked last month, and appears to be the same handset.
According to the preliminary details, Xiaomi's new smartphone is said to feature a 5.2-inch QHD display with 565ppi pixel density and would sport a dual-curved display, similar to the ones seen on Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge and Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge+.
