It will also have a 13 megapixel Sony IMX214 main camera with assisted flash, with a 5 megapixel front shooter. The R1x will also feature a larger 2,420mAh battery.
The smartphone should be arriving at international markets mid-to late April this year and will be available in Sapphire blue and Ice white, though there hasn’t been any real indicator of pricing just yet.
