Images of a mysterious Xiaomi smartphone with an edge to edge bezel less display of 18:9 screen aspect ratio have surfaced on the internet. Initially assumed to be the upcoming Redmi Note 5, it is now being speculated to be Xiaomi’s first R series device, allegedly called the Xiaomi R1.
Xiaomi launched the selfie-centric Xiaomi Y-series smartphones in India, and the company is already gearing up for their next launch.
Xiaomi R1 Design
As per the latest leak, an upcoming Xiaomi device has been spotted placed inside a case.
Purported to be the R1, it will come with an edge-to-edge, bezel-less display with an 18:9 screen aspect ratio. As per the leaked images, it will have a 3.5mm headphone jack on top and a micro-USB port at the bottom.
Like any other bezel less phone, the Xiaomi R1 is expected to come with a fingerprint scanner placed at the rear.
The alleged Xiaomi R1 could be the first budget smartphone from Xiaomi to come with an 18:9 bezel-less display, after their flagship Mi Mix 2. But the design will be different than that of the Mix 2. Both these smartphones are targeted at different users in different price segments.
There are no other details or specifications of the upcoming smartphone at the moment. As far as the price is concerned, the Xiaomi R1 is expected to be available at a price tag of 1499 Yuan, which is around Rs. 14,750/-.
Xiaomi’s Upcoming Smartphones
Xiaomi has already claimed that the company presently is working on three 18:9 bezel less display smartphones, which are Xiaomi Redmi Note 5, Redmi 5 and Redmi 5 Plus.
So, the alleged Xiaomi R1 might go official anytime soon, and is being hinted at an early December release. The mid-range Xiaomi R1 could launch before the much-hyped Redmi Note 5, which is slated for an early 2018 release around January.
Xiaomi is all set to launch a new device on 30th November, dubbed as ‘Desh ka Smartphone’’. It is speculated that it will probably be aimed at rural audience.
The upcoming smartphone, which many are speculating to be a killer entry-level 4G handset, may go on sale in the first week of December. The company also recently unveiled their third manufacturing unit in India, which will exclusively manufacture Made-in-India power banks.
