However, instead of one, the listing reveals five different Xiaomi models that have gone through the certification. Listed under model numbers 2105212, 2016089, 2016101, MAE136 and MBE6A5, the MAE136 is believed to be the Mi 5C, also code-named Meri. Now the leak tells us, quite a few things. It shows the Mi 5C fuelled by a 5V/2A power adapter, which would mean that the device will not support the current high voltage fast charge technology. The images shows Mi 5C with ultra-narrow bezels around the display, and a sleek design overall.


From what has been rumored earlier, the device is tipped to launch with Xiaomi s own Pinecone processor, which was once spotted on AnTuTu benchmarking website showing similar score to the Snapdragon 625 capabilities. The image also shows the Mi 5C with 3GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage. Also, the device will run on MIUI 8 based on Android Marshmallow. As for the the leaked release date, the rumor puts a pin on February, but again nothing can be confirmed until Xiaomi gives it a nod.

Few months ago, there was another Mi 5C leak, which showed the front and back of the smartphone and the About Phone section. The alleged Mi 5C was seen sporting a black color with what is assumed to be a 2.5D glass display. The selfie camera lens was located above the display and the Home button below, which is expected to double as a fingerprint scanner. The rear camera lens of the Mi 5c was located on the top left corner of the smartphone with the Mi logo embedded down below. The image also revealed that the alleged Mi 5c will be powered by a 2.2GHz octa-core processor, but the chipset was not known at the time. ALSO READ: Xiaomi Mi 5C images, specifications leaked

Other than that, the Mi 5C has been rumored to sport a 12-megapixel rear camera and an 8-megapixel selfie camera up front. For connectivity, the Mi 5C will come with NFC support.

There have also been reports about the pricing of the Mi 5C. The smartphone is predicted to be priced at RMB 999, which roughly translates to Rs 9,900.
