Redmi S2 India to be launched on June 7

To the front is a 16MP AI-powered camera which is capable of clicking portrait mode selfies using just the software. 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.

Xiaomi has itself not confirmed whether the same Redmi S2 is launching in India, but given the teasers, it is safe to assume this is part of the Redmi Y series. Xiaomi India tweeted about the launch, with a caption that reads, "Every step in your life is defined by a selfie".

Xiaomi has already released the teaser of Redmi S2.

Xiaomi has emerged as the leading smartphone vendor in India in terms of shipments for two consecutive quarters now, according to International Data Corporation's (IDC) latest tracker, published 14 May, for Q1 2018.

Last week's bronze medalist Huawei P20 Pro has slid down to fifth as its P20 lite sibling also overtook it. "IDC expects the smartphone market to continue its double-digit growth in 2018 with the popularity and focus on budget phones, efforts by ecosystem to make devices more affordable with finance schemes, aggressive offline expansion by key players and push by the online platforms driving this growth." says Singh.

The Xiaomi Redmi S2 has a Mi 6X-like design meaning it rocks a full-metal unibody. On top of that, the front camera also comes with an LED flash - an increasingly common feature for selfie-centric phones like the Redmi S2.

"The Xiaomi Redmi S2 is a 5.99" phone with an HD+ resolution. Likewise, there is a 32 GB and 64 GB storage options as well, both expandable to 256 GB via microSD cards for which it gets a dedicated slot as well. The phone may be a budget offering but this one comes with a dual 12MP and 5MP cameras with AI Smart Beauty. Rs 13,722) respectively. The smartphone comes in Gray, Rose gold, Champagne Gold and Platinum Silver colour variants. The Redmi S2 also has 4G VoLTE, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth v4.2, GPS/ A-GPS, 3.5mm headphone jack, and Micro-USB port and packs a 3080mAh battery.

For shutterbugs, the Redmi S2 accompanies dual camera setup at the back - a 12-megapixel main sensor and a 5-megapixel profundity sensor.
