Xiaomi unveils the affordable Redmi 2, launching in China on January 9

Xiaomi today announced the Redmi 2, a successor to the Redmi 1S. The smartphone features mid-range specifications and dual-SIM 4G LTE, but it's the pricing that will really attract consumers to the Chinese brand. The Redmi 2 is set to go on sale on January 9th for 699 CNY ($110).

Available in a choice of colours - white, black, yellow, green and pink - the Redmi 2 offers the following in the affordable package:

  • 4.7-inch 720 x 1280 display
  • 64-bit 1.2GHz Snapdragon 410 CPU
  • 8 GB internal storage (microSD support)
  • 1 GB RAM
  • 8 MP rear camera with 2 MP front-facing shooter
  • 2,200mAh battery

More details on the Redmi 2 can be found on the official Xiaomi website. We're uncertain whether or not this device will make its way to Europe and the US.
