The Xioami Redmi 1S is currently the best selling Xiaomi phone to date, but even with its mighty success the phone could do with an update to the design. Xiaomi’s answer is a new mint green colour option.

Currently only available in darker colour options, the Xiaomi Redmi 1S, is the entry-level device from the Bejing based phone maker and manages to sell like hotcakes despite sporting the same design for other a year, thanks to a low price a exceptional performance.

Still the black body of the Redmi 1S doesn’t really appeal to every demographic after to some low-cost Snapdragon performance and so a new colour will be added. A light green, or mint green colour option will soon be available in the attempt to boost sales to female and more style conscious buyers.

Specifications for the mint green Xiaomi Redmi 1S remain the same with 1GB RAM, Snapdragon 400 processor, 720p display, 2000mAh battery and 8 mega-pixel F2.0 rear camera.

Do you think that a colour change is enough, or is the Redmi really in need of an updated design? Let us know you thoughts below.

    it certainly looks fantastic, bud I would not buy a phone just because of its color

    799 would be 100extra CNY over the normal pricing so some 130$
    Would be hilarious if it was glow in the dark plastic.

    The problem is those red buttons, at least that’s what kept me from buying this phone.

    I wish there was 3g frequencies in compliance with north american carriers!
    This is what’s stopping me from buying it, otherwise it looks great, with nice performance and reasonnable price

    The design looks pretty good ,they should upgrade their OS .Its 1GB Ram is insufficient to handle MIUI .

    Am I the only one who can’t wait to see a Redmi 2 get launched? I’d imagine there’d be a Redmi 2 with MTK6595/MTK6592 and a Redmi 2S with a Snapdragon 600 processor. Add a better 13MP sensor, 2GB of RAM, maybe some metal in the design and narrower bezels for some $170-150 and I’d be completely sold.
