Xiaomi has officially announced their first device of year 2015 – Xiaomi Redmi 2S. It is the successor to the highly successful Redmi 1S and the price range of the device is nearly the same.
Xiaomi Redmi 2S has some of the same specs of its predecessor. Xiaomi Redmi 2S has a 4.7in screen with resolution measuring 720×1280 pixels. It is powered by a 1.2GHz Snapdragon 410 central processing unit with 64-bit support, and is paired with Adreno 306 graphics unit and 1 GB of RAM.
Redmi 2S has a 8GB in-built storage, which is expandable up to 64GB through microSD card. Other specs include a 8 MP rear camera and a 2 MP front camera. The battery capacity is 2200 mAh. One disappointment is the Android version – 4.4.4 with Xiaomi not delivering the Lollipop update for this device.
The biggest change in this device is the support for LTE. Redmi 2S will support multiple carrier networks. The Redmi 2S supports GSM, WCDMA, TD LTE and LTE FDD.
Xiaomi Redmi 2S is available in five different colors – white, black, green, yellow and pink. It will be available from January 9 and it will cost $112.
