Popular smartphone maker Xiaomi has officially taken the wraps of the much awaited Mi 4C in China.

The new Xiaomi Mi 4C sports 5.0-inch full HD display and runs on the MIUI 7 OS, backed by the 64-bit class-based Snapdragon 808 Hexa-core (with Adreno 418 graphics) -- a major upgrade over the Mi 4i -- which comes with Snapdragon 615 series processor with Adreno 405 GPU.

Other notable features include 3080 mAh battery with Quick Charge technology, a 13mp Sony IMX258 camera with Samsung ISOCELL sensor, dual-tone LED flash, phase detection autofocus (PDAF) and on the front, Xiaomi Mi 4C houses 5mp wide-angle snapper.

Xiaomi Mi 4C Price and Availability Details:

The new Mi 4C is confirmed to be initially made available in Xiaomi's home market -- China -- via its official e-commerce site Mi.com from Wednesday (23 September) onwards. It will come in two storage/RAM combos, 16GB/2GB and 32GB/3GB RAM, for ¥1299 ($204/€182/Rs 13,390) and ¥1499 ($235/€210/Rs 15,450) respectively

As of now, there is no official word on when the company will release Xiaomi Mi 4C in India and other regions.

Since Xiaomi is not sure about rolling out Redmi Note 2 in India, there is a high probability that the company will launch Mi 4C in the neighbouring country.
