As a stylish smartphone for millennials with an impressive front-facing camera, Xiaomi introduced the Civi in September. Xiaomi Civi 1S, the company’s new device, was unveiled today.
The 6.55″ OLED screen from Xiaomi has been preserved, with a refresh rate of 120Hz and a resolution of 1080p. The 32MP camera is housed in a single hole in the middle.
It features the same primary 64MP f/1.8, ultrawide 8MP f/2.2, and macro 2MP camera modules on the rear as the front.
Snapdragon 778G was used in the original Civi, therefore the 778G+ offers a modest performance boost. Instead of running at 2.4GHz, the primary core now runs at 2.5GHz, but the graphics processing unit (GPU), internet service provider (ISP), and connection all stay same.
At 166 grammes and less than 8 millimetres thick, the Civi 1S is a rather thin smartphone. As a result, a microSD card slot and a 3.5mm audio port are sadly gone from the device.
MIUI 13 is preinstalled on this phone, while Android 12 is running beneath. No charger will be included in the retail package, which has a 4,500mAh battery and a 55W fast charger. However, if requested, the firm will provide one at no extra cost.
CNY2,299 ($355) for the 8/128GB basic model, CNY2,599 ($405) for the 8/256 GB upgrade, and CNY 2,899 ($450) for the 12/256 GB top model will be the same pricing as the Civi 1S when it released.
In China, pre-orders have already started. The original Civi was never sold outside of the United States, and it’s doubtful that the 1s will be any different.
