Xiaomi Mi4c is no secret, considering the fact that the company's President cum Co-Founder already clarified that on Weibo. But today, a new image posted by him on Weibo tells a slightly different tale. Rumours that Mi4c will sport a USB Type C has been cropping in for some time, and this new image confirms that! Additionally it indicates at a rather interesting fact that the Mi4c can be charged via a Micro USB cable too.
In fact Xiaomi will be bundling in their inventory of Micro USB 2.0 charger within the box of the Xiaomi Mi4c. The company however will be providing a Micro USB to Type C Adapter within the box as a freebie. While saving a few bucks on the charger for Xiaomi, the Adapter will benefit Mi4c users a lot.
Considering the fact that you use two devices regularly - on being a daily driver while another is a stand by one - carrying two separate charger along isn't quite an option. Till the inception of USB Type C port, one can easily carry a single Micro USB charger along and use it to charge multiple devices. But the Type C has clipped that wing of ours, despite adding a ton of features.
However this small shaped USB Type C to Micro USB adapter would be easy to carry around in small pockets without much hassle. There's a slight chance of losing it though. One thing about the image is little surprising to our liking. The Micro USB cable of the charger shown in the image shows the port marked by a single line (|) unlike the lighting symbol that seen on Fast Charging cables from Xiaomi. Hence this might be an indication that the Xiaomi Mi4c might not come with Fast Charging support.
As you may be aware the Snapdragon 808 powered phone is scheduled to launch this Tuesday i.e. 22nd September.
