Earlier this month, Xiaomi unveiled the Redmi 2 budget smartphone. The device features great specs for a 699 Yuan ($112) phone, especially with its 4.7-inch 720p display and the 4G LTE connectivity. However, the 1GB + 8GB memory configuration was a bit on the lower side.
But it looks like Xiaomi is going to announce another device in the market, a higher end variant of Xiaomi Redmi 2 in the coming few days. The device recently hit TENAA and improves in the memory configuration section by incorporating 2GB RAM and 16GB ROM, which is double the amount of memory that you get on the existing Redmi 2.
This is definitely great news for all Redmi fans as the phone should now work much better and smoother than before. RAM and internal storage were the only two important drawbacks of the phone and now, even that is solved in this upcoming version.
Since the device has passed TENAA, it shouldn’t take much time for Xiaomi to announce this 2GB RAM Redmi 2 model.
The company is slowly diversifying its product portfolio in a number of industries, so this new version doesn’t come as a surprise. We have already seen two new Xiaomi Mi Note models, Xiaomi TV box as well as a new 99 Yuan Xiaomi Game controller in the past few weeks.
