The Redmi 2S is noticeably shorter and thinner than its predecessor.
Xiaomi’s upcoming devices are continuing to parade under the spotlight. We’ve seen the Mi 5, Redmi Note 2, and the Redmi 2S leak in the past couple of weeks, and today, we’re getting a second alleged look at the Redmi 2S, the cheapest of the trio of phones that the Chinese manufacturer will be launching this year.
At a time when companies are following a trend of making second-generation devices bigger than their original counterparts, it’s refreshing to see that the Redmi 2S seems to be smaller than the Redmi 1S, in addition to being thinner but a bit wider as well. The Redmi 2S is expected to have the same 4.7-inch display as the 1S – the 720p resolution isn’t set to change either, though the 2S will come with more processing power underneath thanks to the 64-bit Snapdragon 410 chip inside. Furthermore, while the overall look of the phone is similar to its predecessor, Xiaomi has given the capacitive buttons on the front a modern redesign.
Other specs of the Redmi 2S will include an 8-megapixel rear camera, 2-megapixel front-facing camera, 8GB of internal storage expandable via a microSD slot, a 2,200mAh battery, and Android 4.4.2 KitKat with the MIUI user interface and features on top. The device is expected to be unveiled on January 4th, so it won’t be long before we find out all the official details from the horse’s mouth.
