Xiaomi Redmi S2 – The Budget Redmi for India
For the storage, we found that there will be a 16GB variant. We aren’t sure if there are any other models, unfortunately. The firmware does indicate that it’ll have a microSD card slot at the very least. As for RAM, we’ll have to wait for the official TENAA listing to go up before we can find more information on the memory. 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.
The camera is where this budget device has the most to offer. It’ll have a dual rear camera setup with either the 12MP Sony IMX486 or 12MP OmniVision OV12A10 sensor as the primary sensor, and the 5MP Samsung S5K5E8 as the secondary sensor. On the front, there will be a lone 5MP Samsung S5K5E8 sensor. As for camera features, there’ll be EIS, Portrait Mode, and Face Unlock.

Lastly, the Xiaomi Redmi S2 will have a respectable 3,080mAh battery. it is powered by the Snapdragon 625 and the low-resolution display, this device will last for a full day or two on a single charge because of the less resolution display and power efficient processor.
And thanks to the many optimizations introduced in Android Oreo One, we know that apps won’t be able to cause memory thrashing in the background or guzzle up the battery by running unwanted background services.
As for 3rd party markets, the Xiaomi Redmi S2 will launch in India and China. We are expecting this to be an awesome part of Indian smartphones market.
