Xiaomi has officially unveiled a new phone under its Mi series after some leaks and rumors started making rounds online. This new phone titled as the Xiaomi Mi 5c will include the company’s first processor inside. This puts Xiaomi in the list of smartphone makers with Samsung, Apple and Huawei who created its own chips. To find out more about this phone including the Xiaomi Mi 5c Dubai price and specs, continue reading.
There are some changes in the Xiaomi Mi 5c compared to the Xiaomi Mi 5 as it’s a cheaper version but the screen size remains the same. Users will get the same 5.15-inch screen showing the same 1920 x 1080 pixels resolution and 428ppi of pixel density. The phone is quite thin at 7.1mm but looks not so premium-ish like its expensive cousin. Right out of the box, this phone will be running Android OS v7.1 Nougat which means no need to wait for an update after you get this in your hand. After the Xiaomi Mi 5c release date UAE, there will be three colors to look out for: Rose Gold, Black and Gold.
Only three phone manufacturers so far made their own chips and now Xiaomi will be the fourth company. It’s expected to perform better than the MediaTek Helio P10, Helio P20 and Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 in performance. This phone will be the first one packing Xiaomi’s in-house Surge S1 octa-core chip. This processor will be paired with 3GB of RAM. There is no microSD card slot and there won’t be multiple storage options as well which means users will only get 64GB built-in storage. There is the Xiaomi Redmi 4 Prime and Asus Zenfone 3 if you want to check out some more smartphones in the same pricing range as the Xiaomi Mi 5c Dubai price.
The new Surge S1 chip is expected to improve light sensitivity of the camera as well which will lead to better performance in low light. It will be packing a 12-megapixel camera on the back and an 8-megapixel camera on the front and both of these cameras will be able to capture 1080p videos. A non-removable 2860mAh Li-Ion battery will be powering up the phone which is disappointing as more and more phones are aiming for a minimum 3000mAh battery. However, the new processor should improve power efficiency as well. Other notable features of this phone are: fingerprint sensor, fast battery charging USB Type-C 1.0 port, FM radio and Bluetooth v4.1. There is the Asus Zenfone Max 2016 and Lenovo Vibe p1m if you want phones with bigger batteries. These are already available which means no need to wait for the Xiaomi Mi 5c release date UAE.
One of the best thing about the Xiaomi Mi 5c is definitely its price. The Xiaomi Mi 5c is quite cheap compared to the Mi 5 and will cost around only AED 1000 or SAR(~2000 EGP) when it’s here. It's already available in China so the Xiaomi Mi 5c release date UAE is expected sometimes in March or April, 2017.
