Xiaomi’s new killer budget-friendly smartphone has finally arrived in the Philippines. Meet the Xiaomi Redmi S2.

Announced earlier last month, the Xiaomi Redmi S2 might have just redefined the low-end market segment. As expected, this new Xiaomi device packs some pretty impressive features that you can almost never imagine on a budget device.

The Xiaomi Redmi S2 is equipped with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 octa-core processor which is way better than the chipsets that most smartphones in this price category have. It is backed with 3GB of RAM and a spacious 32GB of internal storage.


Xiaomi also equipped it with a large 5.99-inch HD+ 18:9 screen, without a display notch. What’s even more impressive is the set of cameras. On the front, there’s a 16-megapixel sensor for selfies, while at the back are 12-megapixel and 5-megapixel dual cameras for proper snaps.

It runs on Android 8.1 Oreo with MIUI 9 on top — so you’re getting the best software that both Android and Xiaomi has to offer.
