Xiaomi has officially announced the Redmi 2 smartphone which features a decent set of specifications, and comes with an affordable price tag. The handset is expected to hit retail in China on January 9th, Friday, carrying a CNY 700 price tag, which is very attractive considering the feature set the handset has to offer.
The handset comes in a multitude of color options to choose from, and features a 4.7-inch display boasting a resolution of 1280 by 720 pixels.
Xiaomi Redmi 2 is powered by a quad-core Snapdragon 410 processor clocked at 1.2GHz with Adreno 306 GPU and 1GB of RAM. As far as the storage is concerned, there’s 8GB of internal memory with a microSD card slot of up to 32GB which is quite enough for most tasks.
The handset comes with dual-SIM connectivity, both of which supports 4G connectivity for most Chinese and international carriers, except China Telecom which can only utilize 2G on the SIM2 slot.
Other features include Wi-Fi b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0, A-GPS + GLONASS, 2,200 mAh battery, 8MP rear camera for photos and videos, and 2MP front-facing camera which comes with 720p video recording capabilities as well.
