The May 10th is not too far away, but if you want to admire the new Xiaomi Redmi S2 with a few days before the official presentation, also getting some information about prices and availability, new render and the news leaked in recent hours could bridge your thirst for knowledge.
The global variant of the new Xiaomi brand model appeared on the AliExpress Chinese store, which also includes specifications, list prices, and the aforementioned renderings. The images do not reserve many surprises compared to what we saw in previous weeks, already generous enough, but confirm the design inspired by other smartphones launched in recent months, such as the recent Mi 6X.
Xiaomi Redmi S2 Specs
In summary, we have a body made entirely of metal, with the front of a camera 16 MP and a display of 5.99 inches LCD in the format 18: 9 and HD + resolution (1440 x 720 pixels), while at the rear a vertical dual-cam 12 + 5 MP , the reader for digital impressions and the thin double strips of plastic for the antennas.
Under the shell are a Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 SoC, 3 GB of RAM, 32 GB of internal memory – expandable via microSD – and a 3.080 mAh battery. There is no lack of a USB Type-C input and Dual-SIM support, but there is also a 3.5 mm headphone jack on the top. The total size of the device should be 160.73 x 77.26 x 8.1 mm.
Turning to the software side, the new Redmi S2 is equipped with an MIUI 9 firmware based on Android 8.0 Oreo. Among the exclusive features grafted by the manufacturer, we note the presence of some features related to ‘ artificial intelligence, especially those that help cameras to get better shots or to offer more creative possibilities.
Xiaomi Redmi S2 Price
The AliExpress price list does not report a defined price but says that the model will be available between $159 and $187 in grey, pink and gold. Probably, along with the one described, there will also be a variant with more memory – we think 4/64 GB – that could cost a few dollars more, but we will have to wait for the official presentation to get clearer ideas about it.
