India is the second market after China for Xiaomi. So it’s quite reasonable why there are some smartphones launched in India first. As you remember, the Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 Pro released there back in March. Later it was launched in China as the Redmi Note 5. Something like that happened yesterday. The Xiaomi Redmi S2 was announced for the Indian market yesterday. It’s been made jointly with Suning Tesco. And the letter S in the title refers to the company’s name.
The Xiaomi Redmi S2 is considered to be the best Redmi-series smartphone focusing on selfies. But it also comes with a number of trendy features and it sports a stylish look. You can get your hands on one of three color options including the rose gold, champagne gold, and silver gray. We are offering to take a look at the latter.
In terms of key features, the Xiaomi Redmi S2 is packed with a 5.99-inch full-screen that comes with an aspect ratio of 18:9 and a resolution of 720 x 1440. As you can see, the forehead and chin have been narrowed a lot to provide an outstanding visual experience. At the same time, Xiaomi also created a slim waistline. So the device provides a better feel.
Xiaomi has been addicted to Qualcomm processors long ago. The Xiaomi Redmi S2 is no exception. It is packed with a Snapdragon 625 chip, which is paired with various memory options and 3080mAh battery. There is also a 16MP front camera supporting AI Portrait + AI Beauty Features. The former feature helps in the edge recognition more accurate and blur the background correctly. On the back, it carries a 12+5MP dual-camera. The phone runs on MIUI9 based on Android 8.1 and supports AI face unlock.
