Xiaomi Qin1, Qin1s Feature Phones Sport Real-time Translation Capability

August 7, 2018, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

Xiaomi, as we all know, has already garnered huge attention of the market with wide range of budget phones. Of late, the company has brought forth a couple of feature phones more, and they are called Qin1 and Qin1s.

The company has introduced these two phones on the crowdfunding platform Youpin. Usually, feature phones come with basic options like call options and messaging. When it comes to Xiaomi’s Qin1 and Qin1s, the handsets come with real-time multi-lingual voice translation support backed by artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning.

Currently, both the phones are available for funding at CNY 199. The phone is getting launched at a period when most of the 4G phones are being sold well.

The USP on both the phones is that they support around 17 languages and thus the handsets feature real- time translation. Along with this, the phones boast machine learning-based translations. With the built-in infrared (IR) blaster, which transforms the phone into a universal remote, users will be able to control TVs, air-conditioners, set-top boxes, and other home devices. It has a USB port too, a feature rarely seen in a feature phone.

Both the phones will come with a 2.8-inch QVGA (240×320 pixels) IPS display. The 1480mAh battery seen in the phones is expected to deliver up to 15 days of standby time or 420 minutes of talk time on a single charge. Instead of the touch screen, the phones house T9 keypad for inputs along with a D-Pad for navigation. Along with these, they also flaunt an alarm clock and weather report system. Both the phones measure 132×53.8×8.5mm.

Xiaomi Qin1, which supports dual-SIM, is powered by dual-core MediaTek MT6260A SoC. The phone houses 8MB RAM and 16MB of internal storage. Connectivity options including Wi-Fi, Bluetooth v4.2, and a USB Type-C port are available in the handset.

Qin1s, the 4G variant, on the other hand, runs Android-based MOCOR5 and has a dual-core Spreadtrum SC9820E SoC, paired with 256MB of RAM and 512MB of storage. The phone has 4G VoLTE, Wi-Fi, Wi-Fi Hotspot, Bluetooth v4.2, GPS, and USB Type-C.
