Xiaomi launched the Redmi 2 smartphone earlier this month in China, targeting budget-conscious users looking for dual SIM/dual standby capability and 4G LTE connectivity in a handset that does not break the bank. While 1 GB of memory and 8 GB of storage is rather average for such budget smartphones, Xiaomi decided to update the handset and double the values of these specs.

Xiaomi Redmi 2 has now the following highlights:

  • Processor: Qualcomm Snapdragon 410
  • Memory/Storage: 2 GB RAM; 16 GB internal storage and microSD support up to 32 GB
  • Display: 4.7-inch IPS capacitive touchscreen with 1,280X720 pixels and Corning Gorilla Glass 2 protection
  • Cameras: 2 MP front, 8 MP back with autofocus and LED flash
  • Connectivity: 4G LTE, WiFi 802.11 b/g/n with WiFi direct and hotspot, Bluetooth 4.0 LE with A2DP, GPS with A-GPS, Beidou, and GLONASS, micro USB 2.0
  • Operating system: Android 4.4.4 KitKat with MIUI 6
  • Weight/Dimensions: 0.29 pounds; 5.28X2.65X0.37 inches
  • Battery: lithium-polymer 2200 mAh

The updated Xiaomi Redmi 2 will be available in white, black, yellow, pink, and green like the 1 GB RAM/8 GB storage version, but is expected to cost a bit more than its $112 USD sibling (current price in China). Unfortunately, its availability or price for Europe and the US are yet unknown.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
