Xiaomi’s Redmi 2 certainly didn’t create as many rippled in the smartphone industry as the previous-gen Redmi 1S (which honestly had a gem of a camera). But, buyers across the world have been waiting for the 2GB RAM version of the Redmi 2 (aka the Redmi 2 Pro) to show up.
There isn’t a lot that has changed from the original version of the Redmi 2; it’s only the RAM which is double the amount and an additional 8GB storage (making it a total of 16GB).
The phone still has a 4.7-inch 1280 x 720p display, a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 MSMS8916 processor clocked at 1.2GHz, dual SIM support, an 8 mega-pixel rear camera, a 2 mega-pixel front-facing camera and a 2200mAh battery.
It’s only on pre-order at the moment, which shipping scheduled to commence 15th July. The listing on GearBest mentions a price tag of US$142 for the device, so not an official launch from Xiaomi but at least a chance for Xiaomi fans to bag a budget Mi device.
