Although it starts at a humble $159.99 price point, the Redmi S2 really offers a lot of features in line with 2018 mobile trends. Even better, it doesn’t abandon the 3.5 mm headphone jack!
The screen is a 5,99-inch curved IPS LCD with 1440 x 720 resolution and a fashionable 18:9 aspect ratio.
In terms of processing power, the phone settles for the Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 chipset and the Adreno 506 GPU. While all models come with a microSD card, the difference is in the RAM and storage. The Redmi S2 is available with 2 GB RAM + 6 GB of internal storage, 3 GB RAM + 32 GB internal storage or 4 GB RAM + 64 GB internal storage.
The dual rear camera, another must in 2018, can also be found on this budget smartphone. The Redmi S2 combines a 12MP primary camera with the Sony IMX486 / OmniVision OV12A10 sensor with another 5MP camera with the Samsung S5K5E8 sensor.
As for selfies, there’s a generous 16 MP front facing camera with an AI portrait mode.
The entire package is powered by a 3,080 mAh battery. If it caught your eye, you should know there’s a chance that, after a China and India release, the phone could roll out globally.
After all, Xiaomi finally managed to bring their phones to the UK.
