A mystery Xiaomi smartphone resembling the Mi 6X passed TENAA. And according to XDA, the handset is the Xiaomi Redmi S2. The publication stated that the certification code (M1803E6E) on TENAA matches the one in their firmware files. Moreover, the TENAA listing also reported specs that match those found by XDA in the firmware.
The TENAA photos show a handset that is almost a copy of the Mi 6X. There is a slight difference in the design of the antenna lines, but besides that, everything is the same. However, looking at the almost certain specs, we can say it is not as able as the Mi 6X.
