Xiaomi fans have been going into a frenzy for quite some time. The launch of a new device and numerous leaks of upcoming devices has kept them happy enough. Now fresh speculations have surfaced after a Redmi S2 leak was spotted online. The leak surfaced on the 3C (Compulsory Certification of China) website.
There was an earlier Redmi S2 leak when the smartphone had surfaced on TENAA (China’s certification website). Even all the specifications of the device have been leaked by XDA Developers. They revealed that the device will be like Redmi Note 5 in terms of specifications. But it will have a dual-rear camera setup.
The latest report comes from 91Mobiles. They have also shared a screenshot of the 3C listing.
According to the report, the listing does not reveal much. It indicates that launch will happen very soon. The Shenzen-based tech company recently launched the Mi 6X in China, which will probably come into the Indian market as the Mi A2.
The Redmi S2 might take some time to launch in China as the company hasn’t revealed any official poster about it.
According to the earlier Redmi S2 leak in TENAA, the phone will run Android 8.1.0 Oreo. It will be built on a 5.99-inch HD+ (720×1440 pixels) TFT display. It will have an 18:9 aspect ratio. The Redmi S2 will be powered by a 2GHz octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 SoC. The processor will be paired with Adreno 506 GPU.
The Redmi S2 will have a dual rear camera module. There will be a 12-megapixel Sony IMX486/ OmniVision OV12A10 primary sensor and a 5-megapixel Samsung S5K5E8 secondary sensor. The back camera will have a LED flash too. It will also have a PDAF lens supporting electronic image stabilization. The smartphone will also have a 16-megapixel front sensor.
The smartphone will have 16GB, 32GB and 64GB variants of storage options (expandable via microSD card, up to 128GB). In terms of connectivity, the smartphone will support 4G VoLTE, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and GPS/ A-GPS. The device will also have an infrared sensor. It will also have a rear-facing fingerprint reader.
The device will be backed by a 3,080mAh battery pack. It will available in Black, Rose Gold, Gold, White, Blue, Pink, Gray and Silver color options.

The Redmi S2 looks like another smartphone from Xiaomi to be in the affordable segment category. Xiaomi has been excelling in this category and could excel again with the Redmi S2. Moreover, according to the Redmi S2 leak by XDA Developers, the smartphone will be sold in India and China.
