11am, 12th March, Xiaomi India will be launching something and it is likely to be their updated entry-level Xiaomi Redmi 2.
Xiaomi have sent press invites to India based bloggers for a launch tomorrow which many believe will be the sale of the Xiaomi Redmi 2. Current the updated version of the Redmi is on sale officially in China and Singapore only, but India are likely to be next on the list.
On the face of things the Redmi 2 doesn’t really offer all that much to customers who already own the current Redmi 1S, however the slight redesign, more comfortable body and lighter weight do make it a worthwhile buy for first time Xiaomi customers.
The Xiaomi Redmi 2 boasts a 4.7-inch 720p HD display, Snapdragon 410 chipset, 1-2GB RAM, LTE and 8 mega-pixel main camera. Pricing for the phone is likely to be around the $100 mark once officially launched.
