The Xiaomi Mi 5C, which had leaked online several times last year, has now been certified in China by the China Quality Certification Center. The agency has certified a total of five Mi 5C models – 2105212, 2016089, 2016101, MAE136 and MBE6A5. However, according to a source, only the MAE136 is the Mi 5C, codenamed ‘Meri’.
While the certification listing does not reveal anything noteworthy regarding the device, it does suggest that the Mi 5C will not offer fast charging support as it is listed to use only a 5V/2A power adapter. This does seem very strange as Xiaomi offers fast charging support on most of its devices except for the entry-level lineup.
Going by previous leaks, the Mi 5C will sport a 5.5-inch display with 1080 x 1920 Full HD resolution and a pixel density of 403 pixels per inch. The smartphone could be powered by Xiaomi’s first in-house developed mobile SoC, known as “Pine Core”. It will be an octa-core chipset manufactured on a 14nm process, clocked at 2.2 GHz. Taking care of graphics processing will be the ARM Mali-T860 MP4 GPU. The SoC will be paired with 3GB of RAM and 64GB of native storage.
The rear camera on the Mi 5C is expected to be a 12MP unit, capable of shooting videos at up to 1080p resolution. On the front will be an 8MP unit for selfies and video calls. The smartphone is expected to ship with MIUI 8 OS, which is based on Android 6.0 Marshmallow.
