In recent times, Xiaomi has bet on evolving its smartphone ranges, endowing them with more and more technology. However, in order to reach the maximum number of users, the Chinese brand has now bet on a basic and affordable mobile phone.
We have witnessed a giant evolution in the various technological markets, leading us to co-exist with more and more technology.
The smartphone market is no exception, and the evolution we have seen in recent times is clear. If brands such as Nokia and Blackberry have been the most successful, we now see other brands moving up with other types of technology capabilities.
Xiaomi is an excellent example of this evolution. In recent times has made a strong guide to evolve their products, something that has reflected in the current quality that their smartphones and gadgets feature.
However, even though we have real pocket computers in our hands today, the truth is that not all users are fans of the latest technologies. Although in a smaller number, we still see several people with traditional mobile phones on the street, this represents a niche that prefers more simplicity of use in the face of new technologies.
Addressing this type of user, Xiaomi has now introduced Qin mobile phones, a range comprised of two models with simpler functions at a lower price, but which offer the advantage of artificial intelligence. These models rely on the design of the Chinese company and manufacture of the Shenzhen Duojia Technology Co. Ltd.
With a 2.8-inch screen and a resolution of 320 x 240 pixels, these are the two phones that look very similar to the old Nokia devices. Inside, we can find a MediaTek processor MT6260A, 8 MB of RAM and 16 MB of internal storage in Qin 1, while a Spreadtrum SC9820E chipset with 256 MB of RAM and 512 MB of internal storage could be found on the Qin 1S.
At the connectivity level, these phones have 2G (Qin 1) and 4G (Qin 1S), Dual SIM, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.2, Infrared and a Type-C connector.
The battery is 1,480 mAh and features artificial intelligence that enables voice control and real-time translation.
As a negative point, it has no camera and 3.5 mm headphone jack.
Although still underfunding, these models are expected to go on sale in China on September 15 at only CNY 199 (~P1,500) for Qin 1.
