Hugo Barra, Xiaomi’s Global VP has recently visited the Philippines to launch their newest smartphone that’ll arrive in the Philippines, the Xiaomi Redmi 1s. The Redmi line is the affordable devices of Xiaomi but despite having a very affordable price, the specifications of the Xiaomi Redmi 1S is powerful. It is probably the best smartphone for its price.
The Redmi 1S sports a 1.6GHz Quad-Core Snapdragon 400 Processor and at Antutu, it can reach a benchmark score above 21,000. That score is quite high for its specifications. Normally, most phones with that processor doesn’t reach that high score.
Xiaomi Redmi 1S Specification
- 4.7” 1280×720 HD IPS display with Dragontrail glass
- 1.6 GHz Quad-Core Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 Processor

Xiaomi Redmi 1S will be available at Lazada on September 4. I was actually expecting that this smartphone would be price at P7,000 but I was wrong, the SRP of the Xiaomi Redmi 1S is P5,599. Yes. This smartphone is freakin affordable.
