Just days after the Xiaomi Mi 6X was officially revealed, another Xiaomi phone has been leaked in its full glory, following stops at the TENAA and 3C regulatory authorities in China. Meet the alleged Xiaomi Redmi S2.
The Chinese technology company has yet to announce just when (and where) exactly the smartphone will be launched. It’s probably right around the corner given the circumstances of its discovery. And now, a website out of the Czech Republic seems to have obtained a pre-production sample of the Redmi S2 and has posted clear and detailed photos of the handset along with its hardware specifications.

Not that we weren’t expecting these details, but the phone will feature a 6-inch touch display with 1,440 x 720 resolution at an aspect ratio of 18:9. The backing is reminiscent of the Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 (or Redmi Note 5 Pro in India), featuring a pair of vertically aligned cameras — with 12- and 5-megapixel sensors — and a fingerprint reader at the center of the rear panel.
The Xiaomi Redmi S2 is also said to run Android 8.1 Oreo on a mid-tier Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 system-on-a-chip, which can be found on the inside of the Redmi 5 Plus as well. There’s 3GB of RAM and 32GB of built-in storage, while the battery is supposed to cap out at 3,080mAh. Charging happens through a microUSB port, so there’s no Type-C connector here.
We’ll probably know more about the Xiaomi Redmi S2 when it becomes official soon. Until then, tell us what do you think about it in the comments below.
