If you still think that 4G feature phones are going nowhere, hold my beer, please. A new amazing AI-powered 4G feature phone has been announced by Xiaomi, one of the world’s fastest growing smartphone brands. I have been a proponent of 4G feature phones since the prospects first appeared. And this new Xiaomi Qin 1s, a 4G feature phone, is changing the game.
The smartphone market has stalled almost everywhere on the planet, and smart brands are embracing 4G feature phones – smarter feature phones – as the way forward. The Nokia 8110 4G is one of the first 4G feature phones to hit the market. If you haven’t done so yet, please read my Nokia 8110 4G review.

The Xiaomi Qin 1s has 4G LTE internet and VoLTE, has built-in AI that answers your questions, and offers real-time translation support for up to 17 international languages.
The Qin 1s has no cameras at all, whether in front or at the back.You won’t find a 3.5 mm audio jack either. But then, it is hard t beat the price. Just $30.
