The new leaks also shed light on specifications of the Xiaomi Mi 5c. The Xiaomi Mi 5c is expected to feature a 5.5-inch with slim bezels. Under the hood runs an in-house developed processor, dubbed as Pinecone. It is an octa-core processor clocked at 2.2GHz and paired with Cortex A53 coupled with 3GB of RAM. The device will come onboard storage of 64GB. For photography, the Xiaomi Mi 5c is likely to sport a 12-megapixel rear camera and an 8-megapixel selfie camera up front. The Xiaomi Mi 5c will have the latest MIUI 8 based on Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow. For connectivity, only NFC support has been revealed in the image, for the Mi 5c. The smartphone will be available in two color options of black and rose gold.

If rumors are to be believed then, the Mi 5c will be Xiaomi s first smartphone to come with the company s own Pinecone chipset. Xiaomi has been working for quite some time on its in-house processor and it will be joining the likes of Samsung s Exynos and Huawei s Kirin processors. Currently, Xiaomi uses Qualcomm s and MediaTek s processors to power it smartphones. It had been reported last year, that Xiaomi s Pinecone chipset would make its presence in the mid-range and entry-level smartphones in 2016. It had also been rumored that Xiaomi s home-grown chipset would come with its smartphones like the Mi 5 itself, and also the Mi Max phablet. The wait could finally be over with the Xiaomi Mi 5c, if the rumors do turn out to be true. ALSO READ: Xiaomi Meri rumored to come with an in-house designed processor
