Xiaomi's president compares the front-facing camera on the Xiaomi Mi 4c to the one on the iPhone 6

Xiaomi's president compares the front-facing camera on the Xiaomi Mi 4c to the one on the iPhone 6
We've been hearing a lot from Xiaomi executives about the upcoming Xiaomi Mi 4c. Today, company president Lin Bin was bragging about the 5MP front-facing camera that will be found on the handset. According to the Xiaomi co-founder, the selfie snapper on the phone will feature an 85-degree super wide angle. That is supposedly equivalent to a 24mm wide angle camera, and will allow as many as six to seven people to be photographed in a selfie.

On his Weibo page, Bin also compared a selfie taken with the 1.5MP front-facing camera on the Apple iPhone 6, to one taken with the camera on the Mi 4c. You can see how the wide-angle lens on the Mi 4c allows more people to fit comfortably inside the picture. Additionally, the front-facing camera is also going to have an self timer feature. In case you were interested in knowing, there will be a 13MP camera on the back of the device.

We also now know that the phone will be available in pink, thanks to a picture showing the Xiaomi Mi 4c in that color that was posted on Bin's Weibo page. The phone will be unveiled on Tuesday, and we hear that the base model (2GB of RAM/16GB of internal storage) will be priced at around $200. Last week, there was talk that the mid-range model (3GB of RAM/32GB of storage) would be priced at $235. We also expect to see a version of the phone with 3GB of RAM and 64GB of internal memory.

Curiously, only 100,000 units of the Xiaomi Mi 4c are expected to be produced. We should find out more about this, and other details pertaining to the Mi 4c, in just a couple of days.

Thanks for the tip!

In my opinion, because the iPhone sells so well in China, expecially the Gold iPhone's and probably the new Rose Gold is going to sell well there too, so they want to show customers why to get the Mi 4c instead. I don't see why they're going to only produce 100,000 though. Maybe testing the market and then release more at a later time with a flash sale.

Google translation error of the original source. There won't be only 100,000 units in total.

Right. Like it or not, the iPhone is still the "it" phone.

Some people in China sell their kidney to buy an iPhone. Maybe chinese companies are saving their kidneys by comparing their products with iPhone and proving that you don't need to sell a kidney to have a comparable or better phone.

Yes it's puzzling phenomenon why some chinese people will jepordize their life and health to get an iphone (which isn't even foreign, it's made next door at Foxconn factory). Maybe they should take a good long look at some poor soul who sold kidney for a crummy iphone 4 few years back.

Doesn't their version of Android resemble ios? Talk about riding someone's tail coat and then trying to bite their ass. They should work on making their skin to be more efficient and work on battery gains before trying to compare. Also until they can sell more than the normal flash sell they seem to do they can't compare. Maybe someday Xiaomi

The 6s front camera be good for selfies. Once you cram 7 people in their it's no longer a selfie.

Out of all the features you could be talking about, you mention speed dialing as if those 1000s of apps clogging the app store didn't catch your eye.
