The Xiaomi Redmi S2 will be announced on May 10, and the phone’s seemingly-official renders have just surfaced, while Xiaomi has released one official render of the phone as well, basically confirming those leaked renders are legit. If you take a look at the gallery down below, you will be able to see all of those images, and as you can see, the Redmi S2 will be made out of metal, which was expected as the device got certified by TENAA (China’s equivalent to the FCC) already, which not only confirmed its design, but its specs as well. It is also worth noting that the phone’s real-life images surfaced a while back as well, in one of Xiaomi’s Mi Stores no less.
This handset will include a rear-facing fingerprint scanner, and a dual camera setup on the back, while that dual camera setup resembles the one on the Redmi Note 5 Pro. The device’s display will sport rounded corners, while the phone’s bezels will not be that thick at all. A Type-C USB port will be included on the bottom of the phone, and that’s where you’ll find the phone’s loudspeaker as well. A 3.5mm headphone jack will not be a part of this package, while all of the phone’s physical keys will sit on the right. A SIM card tray will be accessible from the left, while the phone’s antennas are included on both the phone’s top and bottom, which is easily noticeable if you flip the phone around. Xiaomi’s branding lies on the back of the Redmi S2, and those two cameras that we’ve mentioned are not flush with the device’s back side, they protrude a bit.
In its official render of the phone, Xiaomi confirms that the device will be available from Suning, and the company is teasing the device’s AI cameras. The Xiaomi Redmi S2 will sport a 5.99-inch HD+ display, 2GB, 3GB or 4GB of RAM, and 16GB, 32GB or 64GB of storage, respectively, depending on the model you get. The Snapdragon 625 64-bit octa-core processor will fuel the Redmi S2, while a 3,000mAh battery will be included in the package as well. If TENAA is to be believed, 12 and 5-megapixel cameras will be included on the back of the Redmi S2, while a 16-megapixel camera will sit on the phone’s front side.
