Xiaomi has shared a teaser image on Weibo stating that the Xiaomi Civi 1S will be launched on April 21 in the program scheduled for 2 pm CST (11.30 am IST). The Chinese company also announced that the phone will come in the “Miracle Sunshine” (translated) color option. The teaser image shows that the smartphone has a rectangular camera module with three lenses.
The primary camera has the biggest cutout, and apparently, the phone has a dual flash system. The power button and volume rocker are on the right, and users will get a curved edge display.
Xiaomi Civi 1S Specifications
More than one tipster has revealed the details of the Xiaomi Civi 1S and their details are consistent with each other. First and foremost, the handset will have a 6.55-inch LTPO AMOLED panel with a 120Hz refresh rate. The screen will run FHD + resolution and a centered punch hole.
In addition, it will be powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 778G Plus SoC with 8GB / 12GB RAM and 128GB / 256GB storage. For comparison, the original Xiaomi Civi has a non-LTPO AMOLED display and a Qualcomm Snapdragon 778G chipset.
The cameras on the Xiaomi Civi 1S will be different from the original Xiaomi Civi. The new model is said to come with a 32MP Sony IMX616 selfie camera instead of a 32MP Samsung ISOCELL GD1 sensor.
The rear camera system will include a 2MP monochrome sensor instead of a 2MP macro sniper. The setup will consist of an OIS-enabled 64MP Samsung ISOCELL GW3 primary shooter and an 8MP Sony IMX355 Ultra Wide unit. The original Xiaomi Civi does not come with OIS.
While the upcoming smartphone will support a 4,500mAh battery like the old model, it may support 67W fast charging instead of 55W fast charging.
On the software front, the Xiaomi Civi 1S will boot MIUI 13 based on Android 12 out of the box. The original Xiaomi Civi debuted with Android 11-based MIUI 12.5 and was updated to MIUI 12.5 Enhanced Edition and Android 12-based MIUI 13.
Xiaomi Civi 1S Expected Price
The original Xiaomi Civi was introduced at RS 108,000 (8GB + 128GB). The phone is still selling at the same price after almost 7 months.
However, it is worth noting that he received a limited-time discount a few months ago. In addition, retailers are still offering discount coupons.
At this time, we are not sure if Xiaomi intends to discontinue the original Xiaomi Civi after the launch of the Xiaomi Civi 1S. If that happens then maybe we can expect the same from the upcoming smartphones. If not, it may cost a bit more than the original model.
