The leaked GFX database showed the mid-end configuration (low-end regarding Mi 5 family). Xiaomi Mi 5c incorporates a 5.5-inch 1080p display. An octa-core processor (A53 architecture), probably Xiaomi Pinecone V670 is the heart of the flagship. The SoC is accompanied by three gigs of RAM and 64GB internal storage. The phone features 8MP front shooter and 12MP rear camera. Plus, it runs on MIUI 8 based on Android 7.1.1.
Looking at the specs, the estimated price should be more than $200. For a mid-end phone, it’s slightly expensive, but appreciable if we are expecting a premium (glass or metal) design. Another reason is the use of Xiaomi’s first Pinecone SoC.
