Xiaomi Redmi 2S

Xiaomi Redmi S2 with MIUI 9 / Android Oreo 8.1 released in China

Xiaomi Redmi S2 was launched at an event in China, a mobile phone that had previously been leaked in both photos and videos. This product is placed under the Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 in the national market for Xiaomi and should offer more options to buy Xiaomi phones to the potential clients with a more adjusted budget.

If you look inside, the Redmi S2 is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 SoC. For RAM and storage, you can get the storage variant of 3GB RAM plus 32GB or the storage variant of 4GB RAM plus 64GB. It also has the option of expandable storage of up to 256 GB. While the Redmi S2 retains the 3.5mm headphone jack, it also attaches with a micro-USB port to charge its 3,080 mAh battery.

Design similarities with the iPhone X

The Xiaomi Redmi S2 follows the new design language of Xiaomi, which looks a lot like the Apple iPhone X thanks to the location and design of the dual rear camera module. As the device comes with a 5.99 “HD screen with an aspect ratio of 18: 9, there are no capacitive buttons on the front.The fingerprint scanner also finds its way to the back of the device.

The configuration of the camera in the Redmi S2 starts with a 16MP front sensor, while the configuration of the rear camera involves a primary sensor of 12MP and a secondary sensor of 5MP (similar to what is found in the Redmi Note 5 Pro ). The Redmi S2 has a “AI portrait mode”, although in fact the Artificial Intelligence mode has a lot of room for improvement.

Xiaomi Redmi 2S smartphone: MIUI 9 and Oreo 8.1

The most notable feature of the Redmi S2 is that the device starts with MIUI 9 on top of Android 8.1 Oreo. This means that the device will be compatible with Project Treble, allowing expert users to completely relinquish MIUI and run an AOSP-based ROM instead, without too much hassle. Combined with the thriving development community that is seen in other economic Xiaomi devices, this augurs well for the future of this budget device.

The Xiaomi Redmi S2 starts at CNY 999 (about 150 euros) for the 3GB + 32GB variant and goes up to CNY 1,299 (about 190 euros) for the 4GB + 64GB variant.

The device will go on sale soon in China, although we expect it to appear in Western markets also in the future.

Xiaomi Mi Band 3 filters more details

One of the favourite activity bands, Xiaomi Mi Band 2 is about to see his successor appear, the brand new band Xiaomi Mi Band 3 is being shown subtly by Xiaomi’s Public Relations Department. Xiaomi Mi Band 3 will not differ much from the previous model, Mi Band 2 that we show here.

On Twitter, a dark side photo of Xiaomi’s new fitness band appeared, wit this message “Can you get what is it?”

This enigma has no difficult solution considering the lighting of the screen that we see and they are showing that the fitness band will have a touch screen like other devices like the Samsung Gear Fit already have.


It is not the first time, and probably not the last, that Xiaomi Mi Band 3 has unveiled some details before being released, usually via Twitter, because the fitness tracker will be presented shortly and Marketing campaign has already started.

Previously we knew this device having obtained the Bluetooth certification in China, an information that is public and that serves as an indicator for new devices. In addition, it is said that in the presentation of the new phone for gamers, Black Shark, the president of the company wore the Xiaomi Mi Band 3.

The advanced picture on Twitter shows a fitness tracker similar to the Mi Band 2, with a black silicone band. But it draws attention the fact that the screen does not come with a physical button to navigate through menu, which means it is likely to come with a touch screen.

No leakage or track interface on the clock, as the image is taken from a side view, but like other Xiaomi fitness tracker it will have excellent battery.

Taking market trends into account, we can expect more precision, better gesture sensitivity and some new features related to activity.

Soon we will know.
