Mi 5c may be the most affordable Mi 5 variant

We have been hearing quite a few rumours about the upcoming affordable Mi 5 variant called the Mi 5c. Now more details about the handset have surfaced.


According to sources, the Xiaomi Mi 5c would be the most affordable Mi 5 variant costing just CNY 999 (approx. Rs. 9900). While the pricing is surprisingly less than half of the Mi 5 pricing, the specs would also be downgraded to keep it economical. However, the handset is said to retain the design language of the Mi 5 including the fingerprint scanner on the front.

Rumours suggest that the affordable Xiaomi Mi 5c would have a 5 inch display and would be powered by the octa core MediaTek Helio P10 processor with 3 GB of RAM and 64 GB of storage. Also expected is a 16 MP rear facing camera and a front facing 5 MP camera. The handset is expected to be announced in December.
