Xiaomi has confirmed rumours about the launch of the Redmi S2 smartphone via their official media channels and Weibo social media platform. The company has also released a poster that displays a pink version of the phone. The poster features a well-known Chinese Actor, Turbo Liu, with the phone, and the dates of the official launch i.e. 10 May. The device is likely to be launched in Chinese city Nanjing first.
The company has launched several phones with dual cameras, since the launch of Apple IPhone X, under the Mi Series. It is now focusing on the Redmi series of smartphones with dual cameras by launching two dual-camera phones under the flagship series, in India.
The first of these is the Redmi Note 5 Pro and the second, the Redmi S2. The details and design of the phone have already been leaked after smartphone enthusiasts got their hands on the official documentation and information of the phone at the TENAA certification program. Details about the size, color and specifications of the smartphone have been circulating on the net, after the recent leak.
Xiaomi has already started to reveal the design of the phone but it was hoping to withhold the specifications until the last moment. The official poster focuses on the design of the phone featuring bezel-less display with 18:9 aspect ratio, while the fingerprint sensor is on the back between the antenna design on the top and the bottom of the phone. The phone also features the dual-camera setup on the back that is vertically aligned to improve the look of the phone as well. The posters show that the phone will be available in Gold and Pink variants at least.
Coming to specifications, all versions of the Redmi S2 are powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 processor. The phone features a 6-inch IPS LCD screen and minimal bezels. The smartphone comes with a 12MP rear camera and a 5MP camera in the front. The phone will be available in 2 GB, 3 GB and 4 GB variants with 16 GB, 32 GB and 64 GB internal storage, respectively. The phone runs on Android 8.1 Oreo with MIUI 9.5 skin. The phone is powered by a 3080 mAh battery, which is pretty impressive for a low range smartphone.
