The Qin 1, may have been listed on Xiaomi’s Youpin platform as a feature phone. Though its name is a feature phone, it has Android stacked into it and has AI features as well…
The feature phone is 8.5mm thick, which makes it sleek and light. With two colors- Iron Gray & Porcelain white, the phone has its own charm. Let’s discuss more of the features of this Android-powered feature phone:
- 2.8-inch QVGA IPS color display (320 x 240 pixels),

Surprisingly, this feature phone doesn’t feature any single camera, which you get two of them in Jio Phone or at least one in any feature phone. On the other hand, this feature phone has a USB-C charging port!!! That’s freaking awesome, even the Note 5 series lags that feature…
With the 1,480mAh battery, Xiaomi claims that it could give up to 15 days of standby. Also, with that blazing fast charging port, you can charge in your phone seamlessly…
Xiaomi’s signature sensor i.e. the IR blaster sensor will also help you to control TV, AC, projector and other essential devices.

It can also read out poems and other content to children. With the voice-assistant, you can also hear the news, set alarms, know the weather. The assistant is much like Google’s assistant but Xiaomi’s one should be more effective I guess…
