Although Xiaomi Redmi 1s is already grabbed the Indian market share with its low-price concept and naturally an updated version is on its way. The Xiaomi Redmi 2S has spotted on both the AnTuTu and TENAA, giving us a pretty good look at its newly leaked specifications.
The successor to the Redmi 1S comes with some new features and will be more compact (134 x 67.2 x 9.2mm vs. 137 x 69 x 9.9mm) and lighter (134g vs. 159g). Retaining the 4.7-inch 720p screen and slimmer bezels, the back of the Redmi 2S has been revamped a bit with LED flash moved to the left of the camera. The capacitive keys however gone below the display have been brought back.
The Redmi 2S smartphone is the next MIUI software runner that’s based on Android 4.4.4 KitKat (and with 4.3 version on its base). The chipset has been upgraded from Snapdragon 400 to 410 SoC, which in other words means the Cortex-A7 cores give way to 64-bit capable Cortex-A53 cores. But unfortunately, the clock speed on 2S drops from 1.6GHz to 1.2GHz processor but a newer architecture won’t make up for that.
With 4G LTE enabled and its weight from the previous generation has been comparatively decreased and the physical buttons have also been changed. The phone is still equipped with 1GB of RAM and 8GB of built-in storage. Camera front remains largely the same too – an 8-megapixel primary cam with LED flash and 1080p video capture capability. Whereas the front snapper got a small bump to 2MP. Now it packs a 2200mAh battery on board.
Connectivity wise, the new Xiaomi Redmi 2S apart from LTE by default, brings Wi-Fi b/g/n and Bluetooth 4.0. TENAA indicates this could be a single-SIM variant unlike the Redmi 1S, which was actually launched with a dual-SIM slots.
