The branded eight -core Surge S1 chipset with a frequency of 2 is responsible for speed.2 GHz, the amount of RAM is 3 GB, built -in – 64 GB without the possibility of expansion. Rear 12-megapixel camera with large pixels size 1.25 μm allows you to get high -quality photos in poor lighting (though aperture f/2.2 far from record), it is equipped with a phase autofocus and supports HDR filming. The front camera is 8-megapixel.
The sizes of the smartphone are 144.38×69.68×7.09 mm, weight – 134 grams. The battery for 2860 mAh provides autonomous day and is fully charged in two hours through the USB Type-C port (9V/2A). The next month, the manufacturer promises to release the MIUI shell update based on Android 7.1 nougat. The model is available in black, pink and gold colors.
And how much it costs?
In China, sales of Xiaomi Mi 5C will begin on the next Thursday, March 2, at a price of about $ 220 – only a little cheaper than last year’s flagship Mi 5 (from $ 233 in their own market). The success of the model will depend on how the branded chip shows itself when performing everyday tasks.
