Specs leak reveals the home grown Pinecone SoC inside the Xiaomi Mi 5c
According to a leaked specs sheet for the Xiaomi Mi 5c, the entry-level handset will be powered by the company's own Pinecone SoC. Of course, it isn't unheard of for a company to power its own handset model with a chip it designed itself. Samsung has the Exynos line, Huawei uses its Kirin chipsets, and Apple employs the "A" series which is currently at A10. We should point out that chips like Huawei's Kirin 960, Samsung's Exynos 8890 and the Apple A10 are all high-end chips. The Pinecone inside the Mi 5c? Not so much.

The chipset will feature an octa-core CPU (using the Cortex-A53) running at a clock speed of 2.2GHz. The 5.5-inch screen uses 2.5D glass and offers very thin bezels. The Mi 5c is equipped with 3GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage. On back is a 12MP camera with an 8MP snapper in front for selfies and video chats. The handset will come with NFC, which means that it might support mobile payment service Mi Pay. Android 6.0 is installed with MIUI 8 running on top, and a fingerprint scanner will be embedded on the home button.

As far as pricing goes, a poster advertising a pre-sale of the phone listed it at the equivalent of $145 USD. We could see the device unveiled on November 30th.
