Xiaomi Redmi S2 leaks with Dual Cameras, Face Unlock

The fitness band sported by Xiaomi's CEO

Xiaomi Mi 6X will come with a 20-megapixel camera sensor at the back and the rear camera setup may also have a 12-megapixel Sony sensor.

The Xiaomi Redmi S2 specifications that we discovered that tell us this is an entry-level device are the resolution and the system-on-chip. The highlight of the cameras will be the presence of EIS, Portrait mode, and Face Unlock.

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.

The Mi A2 is said to have slightly lower capacity than the outgoing model, with a 2910 mAh battery powering the smartphone. Under the hood, it comes powered by a couple of years old Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 octa-core processor. The front camera is said to be the same 5MP sensor as the secondary rear camera. The leaked files have till now mentioned the presence of only one variant - 2GB RAM with 16GB of storage. And thanks to the many optimizations introduced in Android Oreo (this device is running Android 8.1 Oreo), we know that apps won't be able to cause memory thrashing in the background or guzzle up the battery by running unwanted background services.

If we take a look at previous phones, such as the Redmi Note 5, the Redmi 5 and the Note 5 Pro, we can see that they only came in 4 color options, namely Black, Blue, Gold and Rose Gold. The company is working on bringing the device nearly a month after the company announced its Redmi 5 in the market. It may launch in India first, and then make its way to its home market China.

The alleged smartphone will have dual camera setup and face unlock feature, which is only available in the Redmi Note 5 Pro and the Mi Mix 2S as of now. As is the norm, the Chinese variant will have a different ROM than the Indian variant.

XDA Developers got hold of the Redmi S2's firmware files, digging out various details about the smartphone in the process.
