Daraz, the leading online shopping website in Nepal has started taking pre-order of Redmi S2 in Nepal. Redmi S2 is launched by Vatsal Impex Pvt Ltd, one of the authorized distributor of Xiaomi mobile in Nepal. The S-series is Xiaomi’s Selfie centric series of smartphones, which provides a superior front camera with other amazing features at an affordable price.
The phone has a plastic back and a glass front that sports a bigger 5.99 inch LCD IPS display which supports 16M colours with an aspect ratio of 18:9. The display resolution is 720 x 1440 pixels, (~269 ppi density). The fingerprint sensor is mounted on the rear end. It runs on Android Oreo 8.1 with MIUI 9.5 on top backed by a newer Snapdragon 625 SoC which has Octa-core 2.0 GHz Cortex-A53 CPU. It has Adreno 506 GPU inside it which makes the phone good in case of daily use performance.
Redmi S2 comes with 4GB RAM and 64GB ROM, which can be further expandable up to 256GB through MicroSD slot. The S series is meant for selfie cameras and It has a 16MP front camera with Smart beauty feature. The rear camera houses a dual 12MP + 5MP sensor with great bokeh effects. It also has AI face unlock feature.
It has a formidable battery Capacity of 3080 mAh, which is not that big but it should last for a day on moderate usage.
Redmi S2 4+64GB variant is available at Rs.25,499 for pre-order. According to Daraz, they will start shipping Redmi S2 from 4th June (Next week). So we guess, it will be available on offline retail stores and Mi showrooms from Next week too. And lastly talking about the colour option, as of now Redmi S2 is available only in Gold colour.
With that price, Redmi S2 seems to be one of the best smartphones in the 25K midrange segment right? Well, it is very hard for us to recommend this device simply because you can get Redmi Note 5 AI 4+64GB variant by adding just Rs.3000. And Redmi Note 5 AI comes with a better camera, better build quality, higher resolution display, faster processor and a bigger battery. We will suggest you to wait for 3+32GB variant of Redmi S2 if you are thinking of buying one.
