Xiaomi Mi 6X with 20MP front and rear cameras; Launch Confirmed


After unveiling the Redmi Note 5 and Redmi 5 series in India, Xiaomi has plans to introduce another device in India- the Redmi S2. All cameras of the smartphone Xiaomi Mi 6X will use Sony sensors.

Talking about the specifications, the Redmi S2 comes with 18:9 display offering HD+ (1440 x 720 pixels) resolution.

Xiaomi now has their presence in the affordable market with smartphone ranging from Rs 5K to Rs 16K. The device will also come with a microSD card slot.

Folks at xda-developers have managed to grab this information from the firmware files, which revealed the device's launch in India and China. Expected to be called the Redmi S2, the device will boast of some premium features aimed at the budget segment. Our guess is that Xiaomi will market the cameras heavily for this new device, though we can't say for sure until the company starts teasing the device through its official channels. It will either be a 12MP Sony IMX486 or the 12MP OmniVision OV12A10 sensor along with 5MP Samsung S5K5E8 sensor as the secondary one. It looks like the camera setup on back is same that we saw on red Note 5 Pro, so we can expect portrait mode and EIS.

The device will sport a 5MP Samsung S5K5E8 sensor, which will come with support for Face Unlock.

Xiaomi Malaysia has just announced that the Redmi 5 will be available in Malaysia starting 24 April 2018.

The Redmi Note 5 is priced at Rs 9,999 for the 3GB RAM variant, while the 4GB RAM option is priced at Rs 11,999.

To all Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 Pro users in India, "heads-up", as soon your wait for the Android Oreo ought to end happily. The device will be unveiled in the Chinese and Indian markets only; if the leaks are to be believed.

The highlight of the Redmi S2 will be the cameras. Even though the new MIUI 9.5 is associated with Android Oreo, the devices in question aren't getting Oreo, rather, the update only brings Xiaomi-made changes and updates based on Nougat 7.1.
