Xiaomi is working on a new mid-range device which will be named as Xiaomi X1. X1 is expected to be announced in the month of September this year and will be available for sale from the month of October. Xiaomi is working very hard to increase their market share in Indian mobile market and they have succeded to some extent in last few months. Though Xiaomi is getting a good competition from Vivo and Oppo.
Xiaomi X1 features a 5.5 inch OLED display which is very crisp and clear. The display looks very promising even in sunlight with no compromise with the user experience. It carries a resolution of 2160 x 1080 pixels. X1 will be available in two colors, ie. Black and Gold. As expected, it is a dual SIM Hybrid phone with 3G and 4G network support. It has USB Type-C port, an infra-red port, and fingerprint sensors, though NFC is missing from the feature list.
