Xiaomi is speculated to be working on a new “R” series of smartphones. Xiaomi R1 is rumored to arrive as the first phone from the new series. A leaked render of the alleged R1 has already surfaced in the previous week and today a Chinese leakster has revealed two new images that appears to belong to the same phone.
The new images show the alleged Xiaomi R1 in real skin. Even though the appearance of the mysterious Xiaomi smartphone is clearly visible as it is placed inside a case, it can be assumed that it will be coming with a full screen design.
The bottom side of the phone has a microUSB port placed between two speaker grilles. The topside of the phone seems to house a 3.5mm audio jack. Its back panel may feature a fingerprint reader.
As of this writing, there is no information available on the specifications of the mysterious Xiaomi R1 phone. It is speculated to launch with a price tag of 1,499 Yuan (~$226).
Xiaomi is rumored to debut the Redmi Note 5 with full screen design before the end of the year. However, it is not known whether the Xiaomi R1 will be unveiled before the end of 2017. The Chinese firm is expected to launch the new “R” series to take on the likes of OPPO and Vivo that are ranking ahead of it in the Chinese market.
