A new Xiaomi smartphone has just hit TENAA earlier today. The listing reveals a lower mid-range handset with a 5-inch display. Given the smaller screens size, this couldn’t possibly be the rumored Redmi Note 2. As a result, it could be the next generation smartphone in the Redmi series, namely Xiaomi Redmi 2S.
The listing reveals only a few details about the handset. First of all, the phone will feature a 5-inch screen most likely with 720p resolution. The dimensions of the device are also quite decent: 138.5 × 70 × 7.82mm. It will support TD-LTE / LTE FDD / TD-SCDMA / WCDMA / GSM networks as well as dual card dual standby. As for battery, there will be a 3030mAh capacity battery on board, which is pretty large for a 5-inch device.
Its been only six months after the release of the Redmi 2, so it doesn’t make sense for the company to release a next generation Redmi 3 phone. Instead, it would be ideal for the company to add in the Redmi 2S, with slightly better specs in the later half of the year.
Remember that this is just a guess, and it could even turn out to be a different smartphone. So, we can’t confirm the name of the device as of now.
