There’s been a lot of rumors as to what Xiaomi plans to do during the company’s birthday celebration including the release of MIUI 7 and the launch of a new device specifically the Xiaomi Redmi 2 Prime which was briefly listed and quickly removed from Amazon India.
The Redmi 2 Prime, which features double the RAM and storage than the original Redmi 2, is actually just a renamed version of the Redmi 2 Enhanced Edition which was originally launched in China last February. As previously mentioned, the Redmi 2 Prime features 2GB of RAM and 16GB of storage which is double than the original 1GB of RAM and 8GB of storage found on the regular Redmi 2.
The rest of the Redmi 2 Prime’s specifications remain the same though including its 4.7-inch screen with a display resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels, its Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 quad-core processor, its 2200mAh battery, 8-megapixel rear camera, 2-megapixel front-facing camera, and its microSD card slot.
The Redmi 2 Prime is also supposed to run the same Android 4.4.4-based MIUI 6 operating system but that might change if the company also launches the 7th generation of its operating system at the same time.
As for pricing, we’ll have to wait for the actual official launch of the device to find that out but since the Redmi 2 Prime is only an improved version of the original Redmi 2, its price shouldn’t be too far above it.
