The Xiaomi Civi 1S is the successor to the Civi 1 launched on the 27th of October 2021. In less than a year, Xiaomi is prepared to launch another entry into the Civi line. What are we expecting from the device?
The Xiaomi Civi 1S will be launched on April 21 a few days before the launch of the Vivo X80 series. Just like its predecessor, the Xiaomi Civi 1S will be a budget device. From released press images, there would not be a lot of changes to the design of the Civi 1S, most of the changes will be internal. The Xiaomi Civi 1S will stick to the slim profile as seen with the Civi 1, it will be 6.9 mm thick, making it a ridiculously thin device to use. Not only will it spot a sleek body, but it is also a very light device to use, weighing around 166g. It’ll pack a similar battery size to the Civi 1 at 4500mAh, but there will be an improvement in charging speed, the previous model supports a 55W charging speed this will be improved to 64W charging speed on the Civi 1S.
There will be an improvement in processing power, the Civi 1S will use the Snapdragon 778G+ processor, making it the first device from Xiaomi to spot this processor. We will also see a similar storage configuration to last year’s Civi model, with 8GB and 12GB RAM variants. There will also be a new colour variant on the Civi 1S, something related to the sun that “brings light.”
At launch, this device will be going head-to-head with already existing devices like the Xiaomi 12 Lite, Realme 9 and the OnePlus Nord CE2 5G. How will the Xiaomi Civi 1S stand against the competition? We just have to wait to find out!
