Xiaomi is expected to launch a new high-end device on September 22, the Mi 4c. The phone will feature a USB Type-C connector, much like the OnePlus 2, with a recent image shared by co-founder Bin Lin suggesting that a micro-USB converter will be included in the box. The converter will allow users to charge the phone and transfer data through standard micro-USB cables.
The phone is rumored to be available in two configurations: an entry-level model with 16GB storage and 2GB RAM, and a variant with 32GB storage along with 3GB RAM. Alleged specs on offer include a 5.0-inch Full HD display, Snapdragon 808 SoC, 13MP camera, 5MP front camera, and a 3,120mAh battery. The phone will run Xiaomi's MIUI 7 atop Android 5.1.1 Lollipop, and will launch for what amounts to $235.
It looks like the Mi 4c will be available in limited quantities, as rumors suggest that only 100,000 units of the handset will be made. It is likely the device is being launched to maintain sales momentum before the arrival of the Snapdragon 820-toting Mi 5, which is rumored to launch early next year.
