The Xiaomi Redmi series is meant for the entry-level Xiaomi phones which is now reached to Xiaomi Redmi 5A. Before we could have the Xiaomi Redmi 6, the hot-favorite in smartphones, Xiaomi has planned to introduce all new S Series with Redmi S2 smartphone hinted.
A new official teaser on company’s Weibo account has a big “S” with company’s MI logo right on top of it. The teaser is definitely short in terms of details but gives enough info that a new Redmi S series is about to come up and Redmi S2 smartphone will be the first.
A couple of days ago, Redmi S2 was leaked in full glory on Mi Store in the Czech Republic. From what we have learned so far about Redmi S2 Specs, the devices could sport a 6-inch display with Snapdragon 625 chipset with 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB storage.
It’s expected to feature a dual camera setup on the rear side with 13 mega pixel + 5 mega pixel image sensors and 16 mega pixel camera on the front for selfies. Since there is S in the naming, it could be meant a special S series for Selfies-dedicated phones by Xiaomi just like we had the A series with Mi A1 and Mi A2 for Xiaomi’s Android One phones.
It’s backed a 4200 mAh battery and runs on Android 8.1 Oreo based MIUI 9.5 OS out of the box. The device might be launched by the end of May in China.
The Xiaomi Redmi 2 price isn’t revealed yet but looks like a sub-$200 smartphone.
So, along with Redmi S2, we could also see the launch of Redmi S2 Plus, and Redmi S2 Pro phones.
