Xiaomi went official with the Redmi S2 in China recently with the device clutching a decent specs lineup inside a solid body. Xiaomi Redmi S2 is a low-end midrange smartphone which Xiaomi says is targeted as selfie lovers. The device comes with several features to back that up including a large 16MP selfie camera with AI features. We bring you unboxing pictures of the device spotted on Chinese blog MyDrivers.
On the design aspect, Xiaomi Redmi S2 utilizes a 5.99-inch display with an 18:9 aspect ratio. The device looks very much similar to the Mi 6X which was also launched recently but in this case, the display has an HD+ resolution of 1440 x 720p. Also, it features a different-looking 2 string U-shaped antenna design. The Redmi S2 also packs a metal back on which a fingerprint sensor is mounted. The device is also equipped with dual cameras at the rear comprising a 12MP + 5MP sensors with configurations such as a f/2.2 lens, PDAF, LED flash, facial recognition, AI portrait mode, and HDR. In addition, the chin features a MicroUSB port and speakers, while the top has a headphone jack and infrared blaster.
Just to remind us of the internal specs, the Redmi S2 features a Qualcomm Snapdragon 625. There are two storage variants available: 3+32GB and 4+64GB. One interesting thing about the S2 is that it comes with dual SIM slots and a third microSD slot which allows for expansion of the storage up to 256GB. This is similar to what we saw on the Redmi Note 5A, so you won’t have to sacrifice a SIM slot for the microSD card like what is obtainable on the Redmi 4-series.
Other features of the Redmi S2 include a 5V/2A 3080mAh battery, Bluetooth 4.2, Infrared, and Wi-Fi n. There are three color options available, rose gold, platinum silver, and champagne gold but the unboxing pictures are of the platinum silver variant.
