Xiaomi launches Redmi S2 selfie smartphone

Xiaomi has emerged as the biggest smartphone brand in India, as they clocked 30.3 million sales in the first 90 days of 2018. It went on to become the largest selling smartphone in India a year ago. This is primarily because Xiaomi recently touted that its Redmi S2 to be the best ever Redmi phone for selfies.

The budget smartphone segment is one of the hottest and happening segments in the Indian smartphone industry. Say hello to the Redmi S2. Redmi Y1 was launched in India in November at a starting price of Rs 8,999 for the 32GB variant, while the 4GB RAM version was priced at Rs 10,999.

Last week, Xiaomi has launched its first selfie-focused smartphone dubbed as Xiaomi Redmi S2 in China. We thought the new device was a top performer too, as Android Authority's Joshua Vergara said the camera justifies an upgrade. Jaipal Singh, a senior market analyst at IDC India, said in a statement. With its primary focus on offline channels, itel and Tecno branded phones are doing well in the highly price sensitive India market. For example, if all Xiaomi phones sold were stacked together, it would run 25 times deeper than the depth of Mariana trench, world's deepest oceanic trench at 10,994 meters and 35 times the height of Mount Everest at 8848 meters. Well, the upper variant can have 8GB of RAM and 256GB of Internal Storage.

The 5.99-inch HD + IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen is absolutely wonderful with clear explanations. This results in a PPI density of 269. The device comes with 18:9 Full Screen display. This is a positive point of the phone that makes it different with Redmi 5 and Redmi Note 5.

Powering it up is an octa-core Cortex A53 processor clocked at 1.8 GHz and paired with 3GB of RAM and 32GB internal storage with an option to expand its memory by up to 128GB on board. This is the same SoC used by the other handset in this comparison - the Redmi Note 5. Behind the device, there is a dual camera setup with 12 MP + 5 MP sensors which are vertically arranged and allow the phone to take photos.

Cameras have become the real litmus test for top-flight flagship phones in recent years. The smartphone competes against the likes of the Asus ZenFone Max Pro M1 and Honor 9 Lite. For graphics, it comes with a Adreno 506 GPU.

You want a smartphone with a great front camera? The camera department is where it matters for the Redmi S2 - there's a 16MP front camera assisted by AI trickeries that Xiaomi claims can improve low light photography.
