Xiaomi Redmi S2 To Launch In India On June 7th

Xiaomi Redmi S2 To Launch In India On June 7th

Xiaomi has a huge fan following in India.

IPO candidate Xiaomi Inc. consolidated its position as India's leading smartphone brand in the first quarter of 2018, while the struggling Lenovo dropped out of the fast-growing market's top-five vendor list for the first time in four years, according to data-tracking firm IDC. It is unclear as to what exactly the company is hoping for in the creation of this new department, but it could be a way for them to set themselves apart and be known as more than just a budget smartphone brand.

- Xiaomi Redmi S2 smartphone has a 3080mAh battery. A list of Xiaomi products have reportedly been spotted on its site by KillerFeatures, and it mentions several unreleased smartphones in the company's Mi and Redmi lineup.

Xiaomi Redmi S2, an awesome selfie smartphone. "It sports a 5.99" HD+ (1440 x 720 pixels) 18:9 display with a 70.8 percent NTSC color gamut.

Powering it up is an octa-core Cortex A53 processor clocked at 1.8 GHz and paired with 3GB of RAM and 32GB internal storage with an option to expand its memory by up to 128GB on board.

Senior Market Analyst at IDC India, Upasana Joshi said retailers and distributors in the offline channel fear a cut in their commissions to absorb the impact of price hikes as handset makers reel under margin pressure from increasing custom duty and raw material costs.




The handset is powered by a Snapdragon 625 SoC, coupled with up to 4GB of RAM, and has a dual rear camera setup with a 12-megapixel primary sensor and a 5-megapixel secondary sensor.

Instead of bringing an all-new model, Xiaomi is now expected to bring the Redmi S2 to the Indian market as the Redmi Y2. For example users might readily ignore all other features of the phone in favor of the camera, or at least give it a high priority when making their choice.

Prima facie, the Redmi S2 seems to be a slightly improved version of the Redmi Note 5.

In the case of connectivity, the phone has a dual SIM 4G volt slot with a micro-SD card.

While the memo sent out is in Chinese and we're unable to verify its contents (or if it truly came from Lei Jun) it apparently speaks of accumulating more technology to help the power of the camera within its phones.

In China, both the variants will go on sale from May 17 and will be available in Champagne Gold, Platinum Silver and Rose Gold colours.
