In September last year, the Xiaomi Civi was released. Its body was using the new velvet AG process, making the thinnest part of the fuselage only 6.98mm. At the same time, the so-called most beautiful Xiaomi smartphone weighs only 166g. Of you remember, the biggest selling points of the Xiaomi Civi were the unprecedented stylish look, the selfie camera, and a few others.
Today, the manufacturer issued an official statement, saying that the follow-up model to the mentioned smartphone will hit the stores as soon as April 21. At the same time, the company posted a few promo posters of the forthcoming Xiaomi Civi 1S, showing its stunning appearance and not only.
From the promo videos, we can also see that the Xiaomi Civi 1S will adopt a new color called “Miracle Sunshine”, which uses a new technology bringing a quad-layer visual effect superposition, making the white color look more attractive. Simply put, on the top of a white layer, there is a double time-consuming fine grinding that makes the body have a snow-like design.
It is worth mentioning that, in order to make the Xiaomi Civi 1S as bright and colorful as the sun, the new phone uses a frosted CD texture technology. Plus, there is a camera decorative circle in the center, which increases the diffused light and shadow effect. Then, it adds a rainbow light and shadow electroplating to make the whole machine reflect the spectrum.
Apart from this, the Xiaomi Civi 1S appeared in the telecom terminal product library, revealing some information. For instance, the phone with the model number 2109119BC has the same storage options as its predecessor. What’s more important, we know how much they will cost:

- 8GB+256GB: 2699 yuan ($424)
- 12GB+256GB: 2999 yuan ($471)

Besides the chip upgrade, the second major improvement is the support for 67W fast charging (Xiaomi Civi supports 55W wired fast charging). Though there is no confirmed information about the battery capacity, the previous model came with a 4500mAh battery. And we have to say that it was quite sufficient for whole-day use.
