Xiaomi’s Vice President of International, Hugo Barra officially introduced the Xiaomi Redmi 1S in India. The invite for the event was sent out last week. The specs of the device got a lot of folks excited. Some went ahead and called the device the Moto G killer, well the phone is here and it sure looks worth its hype.

The Redmi 1S is a dual SIM phone. Though the device uses standard SIM, it provides adapters for nano SIM to regular SIM and mini SIM to regular SIM. Xiaomi has also brought spare batteries to India. These batteries come with their own charger, so you can be fully packed on juice when you are on the move.

The affordable device takes on the phones in the above Rs 10000 segment too

The Xiaomi Redmi 1S has a 4.7 inch IPS display with 1280×720 pixel resolution. It is powered by a quad-core 1.6 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 mobile chipset. The phone has 1GB RAM and internal storage of 8 GB. The part that will make multimedia enthusiast jump with joy is the fact that Redmi 1S gives you an expandable storage option up to 64 GB. It runs on a version of MIUI that is based on Android 4.3 Jellybean.

The device comes with an 8-megapixel camera with a wide f/2.2 aperture and a LED Flash. It offers burst mode, auto-focus, zero shutter lag, HDR and real-time filters. For the selfie lovers the front sports a 1.6 megapixel camera.

The device has a feature called the ‘Light Mode’ which gives the UI a simple look. The icons are bigger in this view and the phone almost turns into a feature mode. The device gets its juice from a 2000 mAh battery which is perfect for the price.

The Redmi 1S will go on sale on Flipkart on the 2nd of Spetember. The registration for the device will begin at 6 PM today. Xiaomi will also provide accessories for this device like cases and screen protector. While the leather case comes at a price of Rs 599, the screen protector can be bought for Rs. 179.

The icing on the cake was the announcement that the device is a 1000 Rupees cheaper than previously anticipated. Hugo Barra said, “We were able to reduce the price to Rs.5999 by eliminating the marketing budget.” The incredible specs at that price are an amazing deal. Guess Xiaomi wishes to take on both the Motorola champions, the Moto G and E at once.

    Now a real competition to Asus Zenfone and Moto G,E as Mi3 took on nexus 5 and above segment.. Other players like samsung, micromax, karbonn are already dead.. So they are not really any competitor..

  • Vishal Ashok

    Thought that Asus Zenfone 4.5 was a good alternative at 7k…But now there’s only one winner…Redmi 1s..insane pricing Xiaomi :D

  • Sam Roccko

    is fone k liye mai kisi ki jaan v le sakta hu.

  • TheStrix

    Hey ranjit, is the phone good as compared to Moto E in terms of development too?
    As Xiomi still didnt released kernel sources for Mi3, i feel that Redmi 1s would lack in terms of Android Develokent.
    As many experienced developers bought Moto E recently, so i am sure that there will be superb development for Moto E!
    Now at this stage I am getting confused!! Any suggestions?

  • Onkar Patkar
  • Keyur Bhesania

    5999=6k can’t u see?

  • Akash Srivastav

    They Just slashed 1000rs to beat asus zenfone 4.5

  • Amit Saxena

    Its not 6k its 7k

  • Na Aryan Sharma

    wooow sounds great but what about after  sale service??? that makes it suck!!!

  • Keyur Bhesania

    if this is in 6000 I will buy and after 1+One ( buying this coz 1+ delaying so much)

  • Kalpesh Kulkarni

    Xiaomi is pricing their phones ridiculously….!!!!

  • Keyur Bhesania

    you mean 6000? really? web showing 7000
