With metal frame, sandwiched between two glass halves, and with a new round finger scanner on the back, it is a thing of beauty, and is available pretty in pink, too.
Mi 4c last year, meaning a 5" 1080p display, Snapdragon 808, 3 GB of RAM, 13 MP camera and 3260 mAh battery, but it now comes in a much sleeker body, with a fingerprint scanner, and with a price to die for, at least in China.The phone has almost the same specs as the
