Rabbit R1 Not Just Android: Official Denies AI Device Allegations

Amidst reports of the Rabbit R1 being a mere Android shell, the company clarifies its unique Rabbit OS and built-in AI

These days controversy surrounds the Rabbit R1, a new pocket AI device presented at CES 2024. Reports claimed that the device is merely a shell for an Android app, but the manufacturer, Rabbit, has officially denied these claims.

A whistleblower on X Mishaal Rahman had earlier alleged that the app, supposedly the Rabbit R1’s unique launcher, could be installed and operated on a Pixel 6a smartphone, suggesting that the Rabbit R1 might not be as unique as advertised.

The launcher, designed for a smaller screen, only utilizes a fraction of the smartphone’s display area.

Rabbit’s CEO, Jesse Lyu, countered these claims, stating that Rabbit R1 runs on a custom Rabbit OS, not on Android, and emphasized the risks associated with unauthorized third-party apps and simulators that might mimic their device’s functionality.

He recommended against using pirated versions of Rabbit OS applications, which pose significant security risks.

Rabbit R1 has been popular since its debut, with the first 10,000 units selling out within a day. It features a 2.88-inch touchscreen, a rotating camera, and an interactive scroll wheel.

It operates independently of a smartphone and can perform a variety of tasks like playing music, shopping, and messaging.

The device runs on a MediaTek processor, with 4GB of RAM and 128GB of storage, and is powered to last all day.
