This could be the Xiaomi X1 [More pics added]

A couple of weeks ago, we told you that Xiaomi is working on a new phone possibly for a new series. Well, we now have more information regarding the device.

The smartphone in question is currently codenamed as Xiaomi X1 and is believed to be launched sometime in this month. The leaker has also posted the image of the smartphone on Twitter.

As you see from the above image, the device seems to have a soft matte finish with antenna bands running over the top edge. What’s more important, though, is the dual camera setup placed towards the top left corner of the rear adjacent to the dual-tone LED flash.
