The Redmi 2S is expected to feature the same great feature to price ratio as its predecessor.
The Redmi 1S has been a major success in markets like China (where it sold as the Hongmi 1S) and India, thanks to the phone’s eclectic mix of powerful hardware and an extremely low price. It should come as no surprise then that Xiaomi has been working on a follow-up; the Redmi 2S (a tentative name) has reportedly been spotted on the AnTuTu benchmark database and on Chinese certification authority TENAA’s website, giving us a look at the device and its specifications.
The Redmi 2S is listed as having a 4.7-inch 1280×720 pixels display, a quad-core 64-bit Snapdragon 410 processor clocked at 1.2GHz, 1GB of RAM, an 8-megapixel rear camera, a 2-megapixel front-facing shooter, and Android 4.4.4 KitKat. Other specs aren’t mentioned, but the phone is said to come with 8GB of expandable internal storage, and a 2,200mAh battery. In terms of design, the Redmi 2S looks quite similar to the Redmi 1S, except for a few changes in the placement of elements like the LED flash and speaker grille.
The Redmi 2S will reportedly be made available in black, white, red, orange, yellow, green, purple, and blue, color options that are considerably higher than what Xiaomi offered with the 1S. There is no info on pricing and availability, though it’s expected to be unveiled sometime early next year.
