Spec Battle: Mi 4c vs OnePlus 2
Xiaomi unveiled the China-only Mi 4c today and the mid-range phone packs serious specs that can take on some big names. The Mi 4c boasts of an improved Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 processor and a Type-C USB support.
The phone features a 5-inch 1080p display and the ‘Sunlight Display’ is said to offer “excellent visibility in bright conditions”. The phone comes with a 13-megapixel primary camera with face detection autofocus – like the iPhone 6 and Galaxy S6 – for quicker autofocusing. The smartphone will be available in two variants – 16 GB internal with 2 GB RAM and 64 GB internal with 3 GB RAM.
The Mi 4c, though priced at a very low Rs. 13,500 (approx.), can hold its own when compared to the OnePlus 2. In the camera department, the Mi 4c and OnePlus 2 stand on even grounds, at least on paper. However, the Mi 4c boasts of a better camera quality using the same autofocus technology as the iPhone 6 and Galaxy S6. For a low budget phone, the Mi 4c also packs a powerful 64-bit Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 hexa-core processor.
The highlight of the Mi 4c is no doubt a powerful SoC, which is usually seen in high-end phones like LG G4. The Mi 4c will be available in white, grey, pink, yellow, and blue colours. No word yet on when the phone will come to India.
