That day finally happened and the smartphone is now ready with a 5-inch 1080p display, Hexa-Core Snadpragon 808 processor, Android Lollipop, and MIUI 7 user interface. It’s another Mi 4 variant that is obviously meant for release in China and we’re guessing the United States soon.

There’s also an infrared sensor so you can control your home appliances, DVR, or TV right from the smartphone.

Since new smartphones today are incorporating new touch technology, this Xiaomi Mi 4c takes advantage of the Edge Touch Technology to allow simple controls on the side of the phone.
