Xiaomi Redmi S2 Specifications and Price

Xiaomi Redmi S2 Specifications, Features and Price

Xiaomi has today unveiled the Redmi S2 in China. The phone stands just below the Redmi Note 5 in its domestic market, although it maintains some of the features like dual cameras and tall screen.

The Xiaomi Redmi S2 features a tall 5.99 inch screen with HD+ resolution. It has no button or sensors on the front – the fingerprint scanner is sitting on the back, while the UI navigation is done via onscreen keys.

The Redmi S2 is powered by the Snapdragon 625 chipset and runs on Android 8.1 Oreo which is skinned with MIUI 9. The SoC has an octa-core CPU, clocked at 2.0 GHz and Adreno 506 GPU.

As far camera is concerned, the Redmi S2 packs a AI-assisted 16 MP selfie snapper with an LED flash. The rear setup is the same 12 MP + 5 MP combo with EIS that we saw on the Redmi Note 5 Pro.

The Xiaomi Redmi S2 comes in two versions as far as memory is concerned – 3 GB RAM + 32 GB storage and 4 GB RAM + 64 GB storage – and they both come with a microSD card slot.

The 3GB/32GB Redmi S2 will cost for CNY999(€130/$160), while the 4GB/64GB will go for CNY1,299 ($204/€171). The phone is available in three colors – Rose Gold, Champagne Gold, Platinum Silver.
