Xiaomi just announced its Mi Router 4C router in China. It is the successor to the Mi 3C Router that the company had launched earlier in the year. The new router comes with similar features, as compared to the Mi Router 4, one of them being the four omni-directional antennas attached to the body. The router will go on sale in China for a price of RMB 99 (approximately Rs 1,000), and will be available through Xiaomi Mall, Xiaomi Youpin, Xiaomi Home, and Tmall.
Along with the four antennas, the Mi Router 4C looks identical to the Mi Router 4. It features a slim and sleek chassis, which is available only in a simple white color. My Drivers reports the router to be an entry level variant of the Mi Router 4. One of key differences is that the Mi Router 4C comes with 64MB of built-in memory, as compared to the 128MB of DDR3 RAM and NAND flash storage featured on the Mi Router 4.
The router is said to come with a smart app management system that carries certain remote operations as well. The app is said to be available for both iOS and Android devices. While other specifications are yet to be announced, we’re expecting them to be on the same lines of the Mi Router 4. To give you an idea, the Mi Router 4 features dual-band Wi-Fi, and is said to sport peak speeds of 1,167Mbps. It supports connectivity to 128 devices, and is also equipped with MiNET that allows it to connect with smart devices, just by clicking a button.
