The design of this phone is awesome at this price and soon it will beat every other smartphone in this price group as per the design standards. It also got HD display so viewing movies and contents is definitely going to be an awesome experience while other phones are offering below HD resolution displays.
The phone is going to run on latest version of MiUi skin which will be added on Android OS. We had already seen what this new user interface looks like and no doubt it’s another wow factor (though it looks much like new iOS but who cares).
Another feature to attract Indian users with this phone is the Dual SIM cards support. This phone is going to work on 3G. The unique feature offered in this smartphone is that it supports USB OTG (One the Go). This means users can insert their USB data disks and can use them easily. This particular feature isn’t available without root but now it will be possible by default in the all new Redmi 1S.
Xiaomi Redmi 1S Price and Release Date
So this is the phone you’ll be getting at a price of just Rs 5,999 i.e. approx 6k INR. I must say that once this phone goes on sale via Flipkart then it is definitely going to woo customers and break records even further for the Xiaomi.
The other competitor smartphones being offered at this price either don’t have front facing camera or don’t have sensors which are becoming standards and more importantly the HD display but this Redmi 1S got all of these.
Excited about this upcoming beast from Xiaomi? I’m pretty sure you are. This smartphone will go on sale from the 2nd of September on Flipkart. I assume it will be very hard to grab this smartphone after what we have seen with the Xiaomi Mi3. So, brace yourselves, and make all the arrangements to grab this smartphone from Flipkart. Only the lucky ones will get it 😀
