Xiaomi Mi 4c to feature infrared port?
According to a posting on Weibo, the Mi 4c will not only come with a Type-C USB port, it will also come with an infrared port to be used for security, not for connectivity. The handset is expected to be priced in the area of $200-$220 USD, and could be considered a stop gap until the long awaited Xiaomi Mi 5 is finally launched. We could see Xiaomi's new flagship unveiled on September 24th along with the Mi 4c.
Back to the Xiaomi Mi 4c. The handset is expected to feature a 5-inch, 1080 x 1920 resolution screen. That works out to a pixel density of 441ppi. Under the hood is the Snapdragon 808 SoC carrying a hexa-core 1.8GHz CPU, and the Adreno 418 GPU. A 13MP camera is on back along with a 5MP front-facing shooter. Keeping the lights on is a 3000mAh juicer, and Android 5.1 is pre-installed with MIUI 7 running on top.
We're looking forward to the 24th to see what Xiaomi has to tell us about the infrared port. That's just two weeks away.
Thanks for the tip!
