Redmi S2 will also pack a 3,080 mAh battery. The company has supposedly bestowed the budget smartphone with a 12MP + 5MP dual lens setup, with the former benefitting from a Sony IMX486 or OmniVision OV12A10 sensor and the latter from a Samsung S5K5E8 sensor.
Xiaomi now has their presence in the affordable market with smartphone ranging from Rs 5K to Rs 16K. There will be 16 GB of storage on board with a microSD slot to expand the memory as much as budget allows.
As MIX Xiaomi Mi 2S, Mi-7 will get a double rear camera configuration.
Xda-developers managed to retain the firmware files of Redmi S2, which has revealed that the device will launch in both India and China.
The Redmi S2 will be exclusive to China and India only, and the device might launch in India first before heading to its home market in China. Our guess is that Xiaomi will market the cameras heavily for this new device, though we can't say for sure until the company starts teasing the device through its official channels. The camera will feature Electronic Image Stabilisation (EIS), Portrait Mode and Face Unlock.
The device will sport a 5MP Samsung S5K5E8 sensor, which will come with support for Face Unlock.
In order to counter the Xiaomi Redmi Note 5, the other Chinese major tech giant has reduced the price of its model by Rs 5000.
If this information grabbed your attention then we would also like to remind you of the phone's specs. It looks like the main camera will be borrowed straight from Redmi Note 5 Pro.
As far as the specifications of Redmi Note 5 are concerned it features a 5.99-inch Full HD+ display with a screen resolution of 2160 x 1080 pixels, a colour contrast ratio of 1000:1 and 450-nits brightness.
It will be running on Android 8.1 Oreo-based MIUI 9 out of the box. It'll likely be 2GB-3GBs of RAM given the rest of the Redmi S2's specifications, but that's just what I think will end up happening.
