After rousing success in South Eastern Asia thanks to its high specifications low pricing model, Xiaomi has a new baby to show off. The new device from Xiaomi comes in the RedMi category which so far only showcased the RedMi 1s. The RedMi 1s had recently gone on sale in India and it was only when Xiaomi decided to bring in the RedMi Note that the device was phased out (brought back again after the injunction on RedMi Note) thanks to the strategy which sees only one Mi device going on sale at once in India.
The RedMi 2 is a successor to the RedMi 1s despite bringing in only minor improvements, both in terms of specifications and design alterations. The RedMi 2 brings a Snapdragon 410 SoC which is built on 64 bit architecture with a 720 P display measuring 4.7 inches diagonally.
There is 1 GB RAM and 8 GB of internal storage with an option to expand it with a Micro SD card. The battery here is a 2,200 mAh and the device supports dual active SIM cards and is LTE compatible. The RedMi 2 is expected in China on January 9th and will set you back by about 699 Yuan, which approximately comes to Rs 6,700 which incidentally is really close to what the RedMi 1s was selling for in India. It would be interesting to see when and at what price would the phone reach India.
