Xiaomi has unveiled the Redmi 1S successor on January first, the phone is called the Redmi 2 and it costs only 699 Yuan ($110). That is the phone's price in China though, it's extremely cheap and it offers a lot for the price. It was to be expected that the phone will cost more once the retailers get their hands on it, and it seems like that just happened. I didn't expect retailers to offer this device internationally that fast, but it looks like the Redmi 2's listings have commenced.

This handset got listed by a Chinese reseller, SPEmall, it is not only listed but available as well. The phone is available in White only for now though, and it will cost you $154.99 should you choose to purchase it. The phone will hit India, Singapore and Malaysia later this year, but for those living outside of those regions, buying through a reseller might be the only way to get your hands on the device. The price is higher, but I'd argue that this device is more than worth it, even with a price like this is more than a good choice considering what it has to offer.
