Xiaomi Redmi S2 leaks with Dual Cameras, Face Unlock

Xiaomi is preparing yet another budget smartphone for the Indian market and this time around, it's under a new smartphone series: Redmi S. Expected to be called the Redmi S2, the device will boast of some premium features aimed at the budget segment. The files specifically mention Chinese and Indian variants of the device giving us an indication that the device will be launched in China and India.

The Redmi S2 is likely to sport an LCD display panel with HD (1440×720 pixel) resolution and 18:9 aspect ratio. Xiaomi has used SD 625 on several of their midrange devices, and it is known for striking a balance between performance and efficiency. The smartphone is said to pack a primary 12MP Sony IMX486 or 12MP OmniVision OV12A10 sensor at the back, which will work in tandem with the 5MP Samsung S5K5E8 sensor. It will also have a 5-megapixel Samsung S5K5E8 secondary sensor. The device may also come with other storage options such as 32GB and 64GB. The storage space will be further expandable using a microSD card.

The Redmi Note 5 is priced at Rs 9,999 for the 3GB RAM variant, while the 4GB RAM option is priced at Rs 11,999. A Snapdragon 625 SoC will be powering the device, which is the same chipset used in the Redmi Note 5 and Redmi Note 4 in the past. And thanks to the many optimizations introduced in Android Oreo (this device is running Android 8.1 Oreo), we know that apps won't be able to cause memory thrashing in the background or guzzle up the battery by running unwanted background services.
