Xiaomi Qin2 - half smartphone for the Chinese market

Xiaomi Qin2 is unlikely to come out on any othermarkets other than Chinese. And why offer a model globally, the main function of which is a translator from Chinese? Still, it’s a pity, since the aesthetics of the device multiplied by a very modest price tag would surely make it popular even without taking the vocabulary component into account.

Xiaomi Qin2 - this is not the heir of pushbuttonsXiaomi Qin, this is almost a full-fledged smartphone. Well, yes, on a weak chipset, with 1 GB of RAM and without the possibility of expanding the built-in 32-gigabyte storage, yes, on Android Go. Even the front camera is not. But there is a special button to call the AI-based translation program. There is a function of remote control of home appliances via infrared. Supports 4G networks.

Battery 2100 mAh for such a device is more or less adequate. New charging port, Type-c.

Well, the most unexpected in Xiaomi Qin2 is hisscreen. A diagonal of 5.05, a resolution of 576 × 1440 pixels is, firstly, 307 ppi, and secondly, the aspect ratio is 9: 22.5. Xiaomi surpassed Sony with its “movie” displays 9:21.

The price of the device is 499 yuan (4570 rubles). The money for launching the Qin2 Xiaomi project on the crowdfunding platform has already gathered enough, so the device will see the light. Estimated delivery start date is August 31, 2019.
