Xiaomi Redmi R1

Xiaomi seems to be working on a new series called the Xiaomi R1 or Redmi R1 or Mi R1. The render suggests that Xiaomi will be joining the trend of bezel-less displays and will be adding it to the budget devices. Xiaomi Redmi R1 is expected to have a 6-inch bezel-less display on the front. There will no dedicated buttons at the bottom of the device instead we will see on-screen buttons. The fingerprint sensor is expected to be on the back of the device as we have seen on other devices like the Redmi Note 4 and Mi A1. The headphone jack is expected to be on the top side of the Xiaomi R1. 

One interesting thing we noticed is the presence of dual camera setup on the front. So this can be the next selfie focussed smartphone from Xiaomi after Redmi Y1.

Recently, we have seen OPPO and Vivo bringing a dual camera and bezel-less display phones to the mid-range segment. So, with Xiaomi Redmi R1, Xiaomi will be able to compete with OPPO and Vivo in this segment who are increasing their market share at a rapid pace. 

It is good to see bezel-less displays and dual cameras coming to the budget segment. We hope manufacturers bring IP67/68 Ratings to the budget segment as well in next 2-3 years. 

Xiaomi Redmi R1 Specifications (Expected):

Here's the list of top features and specs of Xiaomi Redmi R1

Xiaomi has been sticking with Hybrid sim slot which is not really a good option as it restricts users to fully utilize the features. We hope Xiaomi provides dedicated sim slot in future devices.
